Discover how to run a successful VR studio

Enter the Mind of Jack, VR Playhouse’s 360-degree promo for Jack in the Box, created in Houdini and Nuke. The studio will be speaking at Gnomon’s free event on running a successful VR studio on 7 December 2016.

Gnomon is hosting a free event on how to run a successful virtual reality studio at its Hollywood campus next Wednesday, 7 December, hosted by The Foundry and LA-based studio VR Playhouse.

The presentations will also be broadcast worldwide on the school’s Livestream channel.

An insider’s guide to VR industry workflows and business models
Intended to give an insider’s view of the VR industry, the session focuses both on the business of creating virtual reality content, and the tools required to do so.

VFX industry veteran Mariana Acuna, now The Foundry’s media production creative manager, will demonstrate the latest updates to Nuke and its new virtual reality plugin toolset, Cara VR.

The plugin now includes support for Google’s Jump camera rig, including a toolset for extracting and manipulating depth information from the Jump assembler.

In addition, Christina Heller and Jordan Halsey, CEO and technical director at Los Angeles-based production facility VR Playhouse, will explore how to run a VR business.

The duo will reveal how Girl, its upcoming VR project, was created using the latest tools from The Foundry and Google VR, and discuss how to balance commercial and passion projects.

In addition, visitors to the live event will have opportunities to network with speakers and other delegates both before and after the presentations.

How to Run a Successful VR Studio takes place from 6-9pm on Wednesday 7 December 2016 at Gnomon’s Hollywood campus. The event is free to attend, but you’ll need to register online first.
