FESTIVAL SCHEDULE: April 12

Virtual Activity: Masterpiece VR

A new way to experience 3D creation! Sculpt and paint using intuitive, dynamic and powerful tools that allow you to easily build tangible objects, colourful environments, and high quality models. You can also sculpt with friends in the same virtual room in real time! Masterpiece VR pushes the boundaries by creating an organic 3D modeling tool that is both powerful and easy to learn. 

Virtual Activity: Scary Cabin

Every story can be transformed and every decision leads to different outcomes. Scary Cabin is the world's first crowd-created, interactive animated movie. Every couple of weeks MashUp Machine releases a new episode--and they ask the public to chime in on their idea of a good story, by mashing up the content that they and/or other people have created. You get to be the director: borrow dialogue and action, weave together various plot lines, and drop characters into different scenes. Be funny. Be dramatic. Be a little evil. Own it. Mash your heart out! The program makes suggestions about camera angles and scene layouts, dialogue and character actions, plot points and story arcs, but it’s ultimately you who holds all the control.

Virtual Activity: theBlu

theBlu is a deeply immersive VR series that allows audiences to experience the wonder and majesty of the ocean through different habitats and come face to face with some of the most awe inspiring species on the planet. The series has been designed as beautiful moments in passing or a collection of memories that powerfully tap into the vast potential of VR. The debut episode, featuring an incredible close encounter with an 80 foot whale, is already recognized as one the most iconic room scale VR experiences to date (a Sundance Film Festival 2016 selection). Forthcoming episodes will take place on a teeming coral reef and in the very deepest region of the ocean.

Virtual Activity: Tidal Traces

With 360° capabilities, and set at the center of a dance performance, the audience is invited to follow the performers and immerse themselves in this expansive landscape. A bold and technically ambitious pursuit, Tidal Traces envelops the audience in a movement activated space. Three women express tranquility, ominous beauty, and peril through their movements as they circle a midpoint: you. Entangled in a kinetic tension, the viewer becomes the fourth character and composes the dance through their gaze.
