This workshop is aimed at visionary people! Economic, social and ecological aspects are becoming more and more important. XR offers new ways to involve people. We will develop new ideas and potentials with immersive media. The goal? A roadmap for a better life.

This is about? This workshop is about innovation development for XR and VR in speed format. Here you will find tools and teams to develop new project ideas for XR and VR. Choose your industry, whether advertising, urban infrastructure, education or creative industry. We have one goal. The ideas should improve our life and have a social, economic or ecological impact. From here on, we develop business model approaches, perhaps even disruptive ones. You will be surprised what we are able to develop in just 2 hours.
What method do we use? The method is called Open Innovation. In changing teams you build up on the ideas of others. For that you put the consumer needs in the center. Based on this we develop a business model approach. Method kit:  Open Innovation, Design Thinking, Value Proposition Design and Lean Canvas (Osterwalder).

What do I have to bring? Yourself, with all your creativity, knowledge and ideas.

Chong Wang has become the leading force of Chinese experimental theatre for his explorations in multimedia performance and documentary theatre.

Cinematic VR Workshop: Introduction and Ask me Anything
Limited Capacity filling up

Too many movie theater seats remain empty these days, despite all the plus sides like fluffy carpets, comfy chairs, and good memories of first kisses. As business is not as good as it used to be, movie theater owners are open for experiments. Like making some space for VR. While consumer devices still struggle to get a foot in the door, VR Arcades do quite well. One great challenge remains: VR installations for multiple users need space – which is well equipped at best. Hello movie theaters.

At VR NOW Con, cinema owners will get a deeper knowledge of technologies that will enable them to show immersive content to their audiences without too much reconstruction effort. A first step will be Cinematic VR as a shared experience. To demo the new possibilities, our partner INVR.SPACE will set up 50 frame synced Oculus Gos in a real movie theater at our conference venue and turn it into an Immersive Cinema.

At the Cinematic VR Movie Theater, we will present immersive content that's suitable to be shown in this context. VR installations and room scale experiences with 6DoF, live acting or haptic feedback are a logical next step. A workshop for cinema owners and VR producers interested in a new clientele will be informed about the tech, the biz and the content. Let's bring VR into the movies and save them from extinction.

A 90 minute long and highly intensive workshop about how to implement immersive media in movie theaters. The first 45 minutes: immerse yourself into new business opportunities, find out about the current state of technology and set ups, about major and indie content, about marketing and distribution. The second 45 minutes: As me Anything. Experts will find answers to all of your questions.

Experiential Design & Emerging Forms of Immersive Storytelling
Voices of VR podcast host Kent Bye will be presenting his Archetypal Experiential Design Framework, which breaks down an immersive experience into four major components of  quality, context, character, and story. He'll talk about the four qualities of presence, the twelve major domains of human experience, new ways to think about character & temperament, and the two major types of immersive storytelling. The Yang Archetypal Journey is about making choices and taking action that invites the audience to become an active participant in a story of individuation. While the Yin Archetypal Journey is about connecting to the audience to their own sensory experience of embodiment, emotions, and presence to dissolve the ego and recognize systemic relationships and interconnectedness of all things.  We'll interpret different experiences as seen through this lens and explore the tradeoffs of qualities of presence, mashing up contexts, creating nuanced characters, and balancing player agency with authorial control.

Storytelling through XR
XR is a great way for storytellers to reach new audiences while creating a profound and lasting impact. But XR is not only for distribution. Now, storytellers can cost-effectively leverage XR tools for producing a wide array of content. This presentation will explore how XR actively engages the audience and how XR tools can be used to capture and produce 2D, 3D, and real-time content (with plenty of examples, including the use of motion-capture suits, from Dave Hunt’s experience as a VR educator).
