VR Meet-up in Oslo
Last week I attended the first VR Meet-up in Oslo and it was amazing! I am so thankful to the organiser, Kay Tomas Bertheussen.
I have read before about Virtual Reality, watched videos, experienced it and even bought a pair of glasses from Zeiss. However, I was still not understanding exactly how it works…and to be honest, I didn´t spent enough time to find out. That´s why I am glad I went to this gathering. Not only that I understood how I can make my own 360 degrees movies and what software is the best to use, but I found out much, much more about how people are already using this technology. Either for nurse training or rehabilitation of people in the hospitals, or for journalism, it´s a new way of communication, much more complex. I won´t write everything in this post, but if anyone is reading this and is curious for more, just ask me. All it´s still fresh in my mind.
I want to write about something though. I want to share a few things to consider, to create a better storytelling through VR, by MADS DAMSBO, Founder and lead producer from Makropol :
- appropriating emotions through body language
- treat camera as your audience
- montage over transportation
- plates engage
- scale as a factor
- limits in Fov can drive story
- physical connection to story amplifies emotional responses
- point of interest (POI) is the key to editing
