360 Filming for arts and cultural content

January 24, 2019 @ 10:30 am - 4:00 pm

The Space, with funding from Arts Council England, presents a free workshop exploring how arts organisations can use 360 video to offer audiences an immersive and memorable experience.

Using recent and live examples from the sector, arts organisations and producers will demystify some of the common questions around the creation of 360 content and discuss how it can be used to reach new audiences, extend the life of a work and provide compelling new experiences.

With a mix of presentations, case studies and small group work, we’ll cover the development process, production, through to distribution and building an audience for the work. We’ll discuss:

• Why use 360 filming?
• The key considerations when embarking on a 360 project
• Which stories or productions work best in 360?
• What kit is needed?
• The secrets of creating an engaging audience experience
• How we might distribute the work to reach the greatest potential audience

Case studies include

Philharmonia Orchestra

The Philharmonia Orchestra has been working with immersive technologies since 2015, helping it connect to audiences in new ways.  Head of Innovation and Partnership Luke Ritchie will provide insights into how they have created, captured and distributed the organisation’s 360 work, including Mahler 360 which was supported by The Space and Google and broadcast live from the Royal Festival Hall on YouTube VR and Facebook Live.

Darbar Arts

Darbar champions Indian classical arts and music, making it accessible to new and existing global audiences. Artistic Director, Sandeep Virdee will explain the ways in which, with support from The Space, the organisation has created 360 content to enhance the audience viewing and listening experience.

Further details

The workshop is intended for arts and cultural professionals with an interest in 360 video, whether to build your brand, reach new audiences or enrich the audience experience of your work. 

We have 25 places available to arts professionals and artists. In the event that the workshop is over-subscribed, we reserve the right to re-allocate places to ensure that as wide a range as possible of organisations and artistic endeavours are represented.

This event is kindly hosted by Philharmonia Orchestra.
