Virtual Reality Will Be Spotlighted This Saturday at USC

Virtual Reality is ushering in a new age of media that will change the way we view content and how we interact with it. For creators, the 360 degree platform is evolving the way stories are told and the skills of the artists and technicians. The platform has no limits on how artificial environments can be created, but the paradigm shift also requires new ways of thinking and teaching.

This Saturday, educators are invited to explore new ways the technology can be effectively taught at the annual meeting. Lunch and snacks will be provided!

April 16th from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM
University of Southern California
USC School of Cinematic Arts – Room SCA112
900 W 34th St, Los Angeles, CA 90007
