Four teams, three intensive days, one goal: to develop a prototype of a virtual reality experience. Teams are formed in advance, and consist of the following members:
A) a documentary filmmaker;
B) a coder / VR developer;
C) an expert in VR storytelling;
D) a creative wildcard: photographer, choreographer, visual artist, “thrill engineer”.
Consistent with the Montreal-born Kino Kabaret concept, the teams are given a thematic prompt and are encouraged to develop their projects together, collaboratively and spontaneously, over the following three days. Each member will bring invaluable knowledge to the project, and mentors and experts will accompany them in their mission to create the prototype for an outside-the-box virtual reality experience.
KINO VR is non-competitive and will culminate with a public presentation of the prototypes on Sunday, November 13th. During this event, VR experts, commissioners, and creators will discuss the progress and potential of the four projects.
