Filmfest Hamburg 2018Immersive Technology as a Punk Moment – Masterclass with Simon Wilkinson

With examples from Central Asia, Latin America and Africa, transmedia artist and VR expert Simon Wilkinson shows us at Filmfest Hamburg 2018 what VR is all about. Visit his masterclass at 4th October for free.

From the "punkification" of cinema in the '90s, to the beginning of the YouTube age in the middle of the 2000s, to the playground that is virtual reality: free software and easy access to education have revolutionised film-making around the globe. With examples from Central Asia, Latin America and Africa, transmedia artist Simon Wilkinson shows us what VR is all about. The real "punks" of the virtual reality movement aren't the big organisations, rather the individual artists and groups that throw themselves from one experiment into the next. Over the last three years, Wilkinson's VR installations have been on display in 25 countries, and the transmedia artist is considered one of the most important VR experts in Europe. Moderation will be conducted by Jo Nolan, Managing Director of Screen South.

An event by the North Sea Region Interreg project "Create Converge", Screen South and Filmförderung Hamburg Schleswig-Holstein.
