Short thesis: 

In this session Antoine Cayrol will explore the new grammar of VR by looking at two sci-fi narrative pieces: I Philip and Alteration.


Virtual Reality has been portrayed in many science fiction books and films and with last year’s launch of many of the headsets, the age of consumer Virtual Reality is finally here. 

However, the grammar of VR is still to be defined and content creators are now on a journey to discover the possibilities offered by this futuristic storytelling medium.

In this session Antoine Cayrol talks about the basic steps to making a VR movie looking at two sci-fi VR movies he produced: I Philip and Alteration. 

He will look at various aspects from concept to delivery highlighting the elements that are particularly important in making a VR story. He will discuss writing, storyboarding, financing, shooting and post-production in VR with focus on the narrative and possibilities for interactivity.
