Half term Halloween VR Course
29 October – 1 November, 10am-3.30pm
CALLING ALL 10-15 YEAR OLDS – CREATE YOUR OWN FEARSOME HALLOWEEN VR EXPERIENCE IN FOUR DAYS.
This is a rare opportunity for 10-15 year olds to create their own Halloween universe during our October half-term VR course, led by Media Art Collective Kruks, and supported by the Finnish Institute.
10-15 year olds with basic computer skills can join us for a unique, four-day experience to learn how to create their own Virtual Reality stories.
Participants will learn in groups, led by Finnish artist and 3D designer Satu-Minna Suorajärvi, to create simple VR scenes with ghoulish 3D models, figures and sounds – before moving on to texture and character interaction – and publishing and sharing their work.
The resulting Halloween VR works will be published with the Vizor Patches platform and viewed with Oculus Go headsets.
This workshop is free of charge due to the generous support of The Finnish Institute – and places are limited – so book fast!
