Extended Reality (XR) Master Class
In this Extended Reality (XR) Master Class with VR editor and producer Jennifer Tiexiera, participants took a hands-on approach to the burgeoning world of XR, from terminology, the creative team structure, to the current tools and techniques that are being utilized in this space. As opposed to using Extended Reality as an aesthetic appendage, Tiexiera explains how integrating it as a storytelling technique, and working closely with visual engineers, brings new life to your story. Moreover, the seminar equips nonfiction filmmakers with practical XR for documentary knowledge, and the know-how regarding experiential storytelling and developing effective strategies for funding and distribution. As a special feature of the class, Tiexiera workshops how to adapt traditional format documentary projects into the XR format.
