ATELIER GRAND NORD VR
The Grand Nord workshop will gather 10 narrative, virtual reality projects currently in development and pair them with distinguished experts. The aim is to further these projects by putting diverse expertise at the disposal of the creators in order to solve some precise creative issues: narration/screenwriting techniques, recording/CGI creation, use of sound, interaction, post production. The workshop will also be a unique occasion to initiate a new and collective vision favouring the circulation of ideas and points of view, as well as exchange experience and knowledge across the 8 cultures of the francophonie involved in this undertaking.
