The brink of summer brought WVRF’s Co-Founders Delphine Seitiée and Salar Shahna to Journée des Jeunes Producteurs which was specifically dedicated to the latest spectacular productions of young French film producers of all kinds of genres in Paris, France, 7-8 June, 2017.
WVRF was contacted by Benjamin Bonnet, the President of Federation des Jeunes Producteurs Indépendants to speak at Journée des Jeunes Producteurs Indépendants about cinematic VR today and in the future. Young film producers have a lot to say, so why not express it with VR.
Seitiée and Shahna gave a keynote and general presentation which focused on how VR can be applied in the cinematic medium.
Also, to illustrate how VR can be applied in cinematic projects, WVRF showed a selection of VR short films by French VR producers in the mobile VR headsets. Many people expressed their interest in VR after seeing those VR experiences. VR will not replace traditional cinema but VR is in need of quality content and cinematic VR is one of it’s outlets.
