MASTERCLASSES



We wanted to take a fresh approach to creative education. We've spent over a year designing and testing what we believe to be a high impact masterclass. It's an intense two days of extremely practical and immersive learning, with industry professionals mentoring you throughout the process. The goal is to have you leave with something tangible, whether that's a script, a VR environment or a business plan. We structure the classes to suit as many learning styles as we can, mixing practical, theory and kinetic learning techniques. Over the two days you will be fed and watered, as well as wined and dined with an end of class dinner at Roxy, all included in the price. Our masterclasses take place at the Miramar Creative Centre, right next to Park Road Post, in the heart of New Zealand's film industry. This state of the art facility has everything required to create Film, Audio and immersive VR and AR experiences from start to finish. We think you'll find the whole experience rather inspiring.


1.

VIRTUAL & AUGMENTED REALITY

Over two days you will learn practical skills in storytelling, concepting, sound, producing and building VR and AR experiences. You don't need to have made VR/AR before but be interested in up skilling over an intensive two days so you can apply this to your current career or help make future career decision. 

Not only will you learn how to build worlds and tell stories in VR and AR, but you'll start building your own VR experience within the two days. You'll leave with a new found knowledge on the theory and practical aspects of Virtual and Augmented Reality, and also get really inspired from industry specialists already working in this space. Watch this promo video for proof.

The price includes meals through to dinner on the Saturday evening.
