Creating Content for Virtual Reality

Apr 7, 2015 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

| $15

Virtual Reality is the hottest topic in the media world today. We read about it everywhere and have seen take over Sundance and SXSW this year. VR has been applied to film, video games, and art. 2015 seems to be the year of VR, but what exactly is it?
We’re excited to be hosting a panel that will delve into the world of Virtual Reality. We’ll talk about how to create content for VR and the challenges and limitations involved in the process. VR’s role in the future of content and storytelling will be discussed. Together we’ll learn about the new generation of artists working to explore its language.
We’ll hear from artists, Terrell Davis amongts others. The converastion will be moderated by Engadget’s Associate Editor, Edgar Alarez. After our talk we’ll have a viewing party and some drinks in our gallery to experience the work that our panelists have created on VR units.

Panelists:

Terrell Davis, Artist

Terrell Davis is a budding 17-year old artist hailing from New Jersey, East Orange. He has experimented with many forms of media, such as graphic design, 3d design, short and long-form video, traditional media, and newly game design and developing. He is also a curator of a virtual gallery, named the 100% Net Gallery. Having his debut solo show in October of 2014, and having many exhibitions before and since then, he has made a name for himself and has become a force in the art world at such a young age. He aspires to go to the SAIC or MICA when he graduates high school in 2016.

Edgar Alvarez, Associate Editor, Engadget (Moderator)

Edgar is an Associate Editor at Engadget, where he reports on everything from virtual reality to the intersection between entertainment and sports with technology. Edgar has been at Engadget for more than three years and was previously in charge of producing the website’s video content. Edgar began hitting newsrooms at a young age, ever since his dad worked at a news publication. It was then that his love for technology started. Growing up, he had two passions: gadgets and football (soccer). When he wasn’t on the pitch scoring hat-tricks, he could be found near his SNES or around the house taking things apart. One bragging right he’s proud of is how he was once the highest rankedFIFA 11 player — unfortunately, that’s no longer the case. Did we mention he loves soccer?
