360 Video Workshop

360/Immersive Video Workshop

With the rapid adoption of immersive content — from augmented reality in Pokémon Go, to virtual reality in gaming — and with 360 video emerging in news, documentaries and sharing across Facebook and YouTube, we are at a pivotal  stage of immersive storytelling.

If you’re interested in producing 360 video for news organizations, non-profits, advertisements or documentaries, this free workshop will teach you from start to finish how to design, produce and distribute immersive content. We will cover the nuts and bolts of 360 cameras, how to shoot with them and how to stitch, edit and share your 360 video.

Most important, we will be going over the design of immersive content and build a story that is more than just a one-way interaction with your audience.

Washington, D.C.-based visual storyteller Steve Johnson (B.S. Journalism 2011) will be our guide for current CJC faculty, staff and students in RSVP-only hands-on sessions. SIGN UP FOR THE HANDS-ON SESSION
