Cinematic VR Challenge - Holliday 2016
This is our 3rd edition! The two previous events were a wonderful success so we're launching another one before the end of the year to make sure 2016 finishes in glorious Virtual Reality splendor!!!

To produce a VR experimental piece in 48 hours, resulting in a presentation to the whole community at the end of the event.

Notice: Previous Cinematic VR Challenge attendees will be emailed a special discount codes.

In 48 hours, we will be experimenting on ways to make a movie that suspends the feeling of disbelief and gives audiences presence. Strangers and friends will split into multiple teams, and each team explores this new field to create 5 minutes worth of 360 and virtual reality film.

We want to see what creativity and influence you can put out into the world using Virtual Reality as a medium. Virtual Reality renaissance is here, but there are no set standard operating procedures in this unexplored frontier. Be a part of finding out how Virtual Reality is used to create visual and audio narratives!

If you're new to VR, don't feel intimidated! None has harnessed the full potential of this medium yet, and we want to collectively share ideas/experiences. Come with your ideas, your skills, and your hard work. This event is as much about meeting new friends as it is about creating something awesome together!  

Proposed Experiments:
- Discovering sound for VR with binaural microphone.
- Trying to create Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response, or ASMR with a VR experience.
- Creating interactive eBook.
- Your ideas are totally welcomed here!

Is Cinematic VR Really Virtual Reality?
You are welcome to form your own opinion after doing research and here's a good start:

What is Northwest VR Community (https://www.facebook.com/groups/NWVRCommunity/)?
Members of Northwest VR Community self organized building a flourishing VR ecosystem that support each other and define it organically. We are leading the VR renaissance, and we're not only riding the wave of change but also becoming the wave maker. There is one rule here: be awesome to each other!
