About the event
How can organisations use 360 video successfully to build compelling audience experiences? How can 360 extend an organisation’s existing artistic practice and what are the wider considerations and benefits for arts organisations?
The Space, with funding from Arts Council England, in partnership with The Philharmonia Orchestra, present a free workshop exploring how arts organisations can use 360 video and audio to offer audiences an immersive and memorable experience. Using illustrations from the sector, arts organisations and producers will demystify some of the common questions around the creation of 360 content. With a mix of live examples, case studies and small group work, we’ll consider the following:
• Why use 360 video?
• 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
• What might success look like?
• How might you find an audience for the work?
The Philharmonia Orchestra has been working with immersive technologies since 2015, helping it connect to new audiences in exciting ways. Luke Ritchie, Head of Innovation and Partnerships will provide insights into how they have created, captured and distributed the Orchestra’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.
