Wide Angle is offering members the chance to take a leap into another realm with our brand new Oculus Go VR Headsets. Virtual Reality is a rapidly expanding new form of content creation with endless possibilities for total immersion in narrative and documentary content! Visit Wide Angle in July to experience a great range of content varying from 360 narrative films, documentaries, and interactive experiences unlike anything you've ever seen, including:
- Dear Angelica - A meditative short painted entirely in VR exploring the relationship between a young woman and her late mother.
- Travelling While Black - a unique 360 Documentary exploring what it was like to live with cultural segregation in America in the 20th Century.
- Chernobyl VR Project - a hands-on exploration of the Chernobyl exclusion zone featuring 360 video from the abandoned town of Pripyat, inside the Chernobyl Power Plant and 3D Recreations of iconic interiors
- Star Chart - an immersive, 3D tour of the solar system allowing you to hold planets and stars in the palm of your hand.
Wide Angle is offering free time slots for VR viewing to current WAT Members. Each session goes for 30 minutes and gives you full freedom to explore the content of your choice. 30 minutes not enough? We're more than happy to take double bookings - but we require you to take a break in between sessions!
Bookings can be made by getting in touch with us at the office - call 6223 8344 or email Joel at [email protected].
VR Sessions are currently available from 10:30am until 4:00pm, every day except Wednesdays.
Sessions are open to WAT Members only and are not suitable for children under the age of 13.
Not a member? Sign up today to receive exclusive membership benefits, including discounted gear hires and access to our wide range of courses and initiatives. Membership is annual and is available for individuals, businesses, and concession holders.
360 Content Creation
Did you know that Wide Angle has a 360 Camera available to hire? Check out the Ricoh Theta S, a nifty little 360 handset that allows you to record at resolutions of up to 1080p and take 12 Megapixel 360 stills.
Have a go at shooting your next short narrative or documentary in 360 and play with your footage using our Oculus Go Headsets. You might be surprised at the opportunities it affords!
