Cinematic VR Challenge: Ready Player One
Come create a virtual reality experience with us! Come alone or with friends. We welcome all current and future directors, choreographers, actors, programmers, artists, musicians, sound designers, students, and people just trying to have fun.
People will float their ideas in front of the room. People will then choose which project they want to be a part of. Please feel free to bring your own equipment, cameras and computers, and we will have that equipment available, as well.
If you're new to VR, don't feel intimidated! None of us has harnessed the full potential of this medium yet and we want to collectively share ideas/experiences. Come with your ideas, your skills, your hard work and enthusiasm. This event is as much about meeting new friends as it is about creating something awesome together!
Our theme this time is Overcoming Obstacles Using VR; this is merely a suggestion and food for thought, not a requirement. It is tied into the over-arching theme of the book, Ready Player One, the inspiration for this 6th edition of SIXR's CVRC's,and the fortuitous timing of our event a week before the movie is released.

Direction and Parking:
Each team member of a project owns their own IP and collectively owns the final result of the project. They can then opt to license it to non project participants under a Creative Commons NC-SA-BY license, to empower others to share it with their friends, remix it, download it, whatever, as long as they're not making a commercial profit from your work.
We are glad to help.
