For our next chapter event, we are very excited to take an in-depth look at the state of VR in the entertainment industry—from cinema and storytelling to gaming and beyond. We’ll be highlighting the Richmond industry professionals who are using this exciting medium to its fullest potential, right here in the River City.
We are very pleased to welcome Mark Lambert and his team at VArtisans to discuss how they are using Virtual Reality and 360º video to virtually transport users to exciting locations around the world. Mark has decades of VFX and film production experience, working on dozens of projects including Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, Polar Express, and Narnia: The Lion, The Witch & The Wardrobe. He’ll be discussing his journey into the immersive space, sharing his take on the current state of the industry, and highlighting some of the work that VArtisans has been producing.
Additionally, we are excited to welcome several members of RVA Game Jams to share their experiences developing games in VR. We’ll be welcoming Robbie Ciszek, Tyler Rhodes, and Momin Khan to discuss the nuances of VR game dev and share some interactive demos with everyone!
