The 360° camera is to be considered to be the viewer’s head. The main issue is that when the camera is moved in a way that the viewer cannot move, they risk making the viewer nauseous. From an audio and dialogue perspective, creators also need to be mindful that while some narration adds to the experience, a lot of character exchange and dialogue can come across as amateurish. It all comes down to the execution. The main idea is that the video must be creative which gives the viewers an immersive experience.
The Virtual Reality content creators will be asked about the technology that they are using to craft the groundbreaking work, how they are overcoming current industry challenges, and figure out what they see for the future of virtual reality. Topics like how Virtual Reality storytelling differs from storytelling for flat framed content, how to overcome hurdles like lag and sim sickness when shooting, and monetisation techniques for Virtual Reality video will also be explored.
