Course Description

360-Degree Storytelling and Immersive Experience Design builds upon a wide range of media competencies drawn from digital photography, video, graphic design and interaction design, in order to introduce the new tools and possibilities of point-of-view (POV) and 360-degree imaging for the creation of immersive narratives. Students will learn about presence - how immersive experiences generate the sensation of being within a virtual world, as well as how to establish, maintain and exploit point-of-view to tell stories in interactive and panoramic environments. These emerging media both build upon and diverge from traditional narrative art, theatrical, and cinematic aesthetic norms, demanding new approaches to composition in time and space. Students will assess and apply these conventions to their own immersive narrative projects for diverse forms of artistic expression and commercial media as well as across user interfaces and platforms, from Virtual or Augmented Reality (VR/AR) headsets, to mixed-reality installations, and full-dome projection environments.

Prerequisite: ARTM2020 and 45 credits earned
