Die Deutschen Carl Krause, Dominik Stockhausen (Mindpalace) und Jörg Courtial (2nd Step) sind im diesjährigen VR Theater der SIGGRAPH 2019 vertreten!
The Computer Animation Festival’s VR Theater is a marquee destination in the conference’s Experience Hall that showcases state-of-the-art virtual reality storytelling. It is a juried program that is presented in a beautiful, panoramic theater and in colocated kiosks. As the art form evolves, it becomes more interactive, more social, and more accessible. This year, the VR Theater subcommittee is looking for works of art that are experimenting with new ideas, including how the audience may participate in the story. To expand the accessibility of the VR Theater, the 2019 iteration will have more single-viewer VR Theater kiosks placed around the main venue than ever. Kiosks will showcase expansive content that doesn’t fit into the one-hour screening format. The pieces presented in kiosks will celebrate innovative work that is experimenting with new hardware, is more interactive-heavy, or shows brilliant ideas from small, independent teams. Kiosks are open to any attendee with access to the Experience Hall. SIGGRAPH 2019 takes place 28 July – 1 August in Los Angeles, CA at the Los Angeles Convention Center.
