VRFocus Diversity Initiative July 2018 Event
VRFocus Diversity Initiative (VRDI) has the aim to make emerging XR technologies such as AR and VR more inclusive. This is done by offering participants from under-represented groups the opportunity to get hands on with high-end VR headsets, 360 cameras and VR ready laptops to create either a 360 film or VR experience.
The 2018 Events are held every 2 months and I was accepted to attend Event held Tuesday, 31st July 2018. This was hosted by Plexal: Technology Innovation Centre London. It was organised and facilitated by Nina Salomons, VRDI Lead & Media Content Producer.
The workshop unleashed my creativity, because Course content and instruction was very well tailored. Most importantly Nina Salomons, the VRDI Lead & Facilitator, ensured good attendee interaction and focus on outcomes. The VR (immersion) demos on the day influenced me as well as my discussion with instructors and attendees to understand the opportunities in emerging XR technologies. Having taken part in the this Initiative, I am now prepared to take on role of project manager/producer in the Media & Entertainment sector.
