NT Youth Week: Reality Engineers - VR Camp

Virtual reality (VR) and 360-degree filmmaking is set to be the next big thing in the film industry, and there’s a rare chance to learn from the experts in the top end.

Youth Week’s Reality Engineers – VR Camp is giving the next generation of film buffs the opportunity to redesign and perform in a space while learning all about the emerging film technology.
Sarah Hope from Salt Story Studio says the workshops will teach participants all they need to know to create a film and then present it to family and friends. 

“We’re going to give them the scenario that they’re in a small room and there is one tiny door and the walls close in and they have to go through the door and find what’s on the other side,” she says.

Participants will create the storyline and Hope will give them different tools each day to build the film. 

“The tools will be technical things like lighting and sound, or it might be physical things like objects and costumes,” she says. 

"The possibilities are endless with VR."

It’s a great time for young people to get involved as the exciting new technology is still in its early stages.

“I think we’re very much in the pioneering stage of VR,” Hope says.
“It’s an exciting time to be getting into it because it is so new, but developed enough that we can experiment and be really creative."
