Today’s documentary storytelling formats now include 360 videos, Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR). News organisations are regularly producing short VR stories across diverse topics and Not-For-Profit organisations are harnessing the power of virtual reality as ‘empathy machines’ to promote awareness of issues, deepen knowledge and encourage support. The VR form’s popularity is underpinned by accessible viewing on YouTube platforms and smart phones as well as VR dedicated devices.
This course provides you with the practical skills in Virtual Reality (VR) documentary production that are increasingly part of the multiplatform media environment. You will develop hands-on creative approaches to VR immersive documentary storytelling from idea, script, videoing and narration and editing to final video. The course’s practical elements will be supported by theoretical readings, discussion and analysis of immersive long-form documentaries and their communication and storytelling strategies.
Prerequisite: 24 uoc overall, including MDIA1006 Mediated Storytelling or ARTS1064 Screen Production I, or MDIA1004 News Reporting or (with course convenor approval) at least 6 UOC of an audio-visual media production or feature writing course
