WORKSHOP IN IMMERSIVE CINEMA
2nd European Workshop in FullDome
September: 11-15, 2006
Navegar Foundation is proud to present the II edition of the Workshop in Immersive Cinema that will take place from 11th to 15th September, at Centro Multimeios, Espinho, Portugal.
After last year’s success, again we gathered an excellent group of speakers coming from different backgrounds and areas of expertise, top in their field.
Digital cinema opened new horizons in film production: new techniques, new audiences, new languages and new tools make content more and more all embracing, easier to produce and more accessible. Areas like education, cultural diffusion and entertainment are necessarily benefiting from this revolution. Its versatility and the almost infinite range of possibilities of use, as well as the relative easiness in producing contents when compared with more traditional formats, makes immersive cinema very attractive.
This workshop will focus on the different aspects of content creation and live presentation in the dome. Special emphasis will be made in the development of projects by the participants, were they will have the opportunity to practice and develop skills in different areas.
