🤳🏽 Workshop Overview 🤳🏽

360 Content is a hugely powerful medium for storytelling but creating effective, powerful and engaging VR content isn't quite as easy. We've seen lots of great examples of good 360 content since it came on the scene a number of year's back and now we're starting to see some amazing VR films too.
Daniel Bury has had his 360 films featured at Cannes and is one of the youngest up and coming filmmakers in the world of VR FIlmmakking. He will lead a hands-on workshop working with a team of DMOs to explore how 360 content can really deliver great results, leading the storytelling approach starting with ultra-immersive right up to thumb-stopping social.

He began his exploration with VR and XR in 2015 at Rapid Films in Sydney, Australia while working on branded VR experiences for Samsung, Oculus and Lexus. He is the creator and director of six VR documentaries for CHASING THE WORLD, an educational, first-of-its-kind virtual reality documentary series in Myanmar, Nepal, the Philippines, Peru, Brazil and Morocco. He is a first place winner of the Google XR Jam for his team's volumetric VR experience Appease the Gods.

As a public speaker, he has given presentations and panels around the world, including immersive storytelling panels at Cannes Film Festival. His traditional films have won awards at countless film festivals, such as Phoenix Film Festival, Fantastic Planet Film Festival and ITVFest. He graduated from Chapman University in Southern California for directing and digital arts and was a recipient of the Talent Scholarship.

Daniel's journey around the world had a profound impact on his worldview, and his work is imbued with spiritual and metaphysical themes. Daniel's work both captivates and educates.
