ITPG-GT 2191 | 4 units | Instructor: Gabe Barcia-Colombo
Today we can construct immersive worlds in virtual reality or control a character entirely with code, but how does this new technology influence and impact the way we tell stories? With 3D assets and motion capture becoming more readily available, is it possible to treat cinema more as a digital collage than static frame? Can we bring cinematic characters off the screen and into our reality or place the viewer into an entirely fabricated interactive world?
Over the course of the semester, students will examine the future of immersive storytelling through a series of experiments in Virtual Reality, 360 video creation, video mapping and interactive narrative. Working with ITP instructor Gabe Barcia-Colombo, students will get hands on experience with filming for VR, 3D scanning, animating characters in augmented reality and constructing immersive narrative experiences.
