Immersive Overview: Virtual Production & Game Engines (3 hour workshop)
Have you ever wanted to design a video game, create a world in virtual reality, make a CG film or web-series, or just play with 3D models? With Unity, all of these are within your reach.
Unity is a cross-platform game engine that can be used to make both three-dimensional and two-dimensional interactive content. With its built-in physics engine and real-time graphics capabilities, the creative possibilities are almost endless.
Join multimedia artist and virtual world-builder Matt Henderson in an exploration of these immersive technologies, which are revolutionizing media creation. Youll get an overview of game engine workflow (using Unity3D), fundamentals of 3D modeling, and learn how to create interactivity with intro level scripting.
Note: Bring your own laptop computer running a current version of Unity, or just bring pen and paper and take notes while observing the general workflow. The first part of class will be an inspiring overview of the new types of content being created.
Prerequisites: Basic computer skills are highly recommended. Exposure to other media software like Photoshop, Illustrator, Blender, or video editing software is encouraged.
