Don’t get bogged down in the new frontiers, creative content is what VR wants! This session focuses on the future of VR, the platforms it lives on and the opportunities it offers to the UK animation industry.

VR ambassadors will encourage the Manimation audience to feel confident and excited about this brave new world, because their story-telling, character-creation skills are exactly what VR needs. Many people currently working within the industry feel that VR is beyond them, unsure of exactly what it is and which skillsets it demands. This session sets out to reveal the reality of VR, showing that the skills needed are the same as they always have been for animators to create content – the technologies of the platform are changing, but for animators little has changed. And as to the business – investing in content is key for VR to succeed.
