VVV Jam

Friday, October 12, 2018, 5:00pm - Sunday, October 14, 2018, 9:30pm

DMG Workshop • 32 Lisgar Street, 3rd Floor • At the Toronto Media Arts Centre (32 Lisgar Street)

It’s a hologram jam! Join DMG and OCADU for a weekend creating new experimental, weird and wild projects with volumetric video. Think FMV games, except the videos are all made using the Princess Leia hologram technology from Star Wars.

What the heck is volumetric video?

Volumetric video is an emerging tech that combines recorded video with depth capture, so you get a hologram-style video image you can move around in 3D space: great for AR, VR, regular 3D games, or even just cool gifs.

What: One weekend to learn and create an interactive experience with volumetric video using Depthkit and Unity.

WHO: DMG members. Work in a team or solo.
