4 Cinematic VR filmmaking skills you should hone, to impress Hollywood

First, a Disclaimer: As it so happens, I’ve come to know some of the producers of this excellent (my non biased opinion) episodic VR show, and while I do stay true to what the RealVision knowledgebase has stood for, for the past 8 years, I will admit the critique if any, will be written keeping relationships in mind.

To qualify why I think this VR series is excellent, one has to know that producing in 360 (VR) is no trivial matter, especially on an episodic basis.

Root VR, Deep VR and your career in Virtual Reality filmmaking

Shooting in VR on Digital Sets:

For the past 4 days we’ve been shooting the opening scene of ‘Dirrogate:DeepVR’ at Hazelwood Terrace. The reason the scene’s taking so long is not because Maya is a bad actor, no, in fact she’s been really co-operative, going through multiple wardrobe changes, hair styles and contact lenses without fuss. Learning the ropes of filming on Digital sets in Virtual Reality, and discovering a new language of storytelling along the way, is the reason.

We’ll get to some of the grammar and vocabulary soon; Deep VR and Root VR is the title of this article, after all. Let’s talk a bit more about [...]
