We are hosting this event series which operates in Los Angeles, Toronto, and NYC and coming to London in honor of Social Media Week.  

Social Media Week London is one of the premiere digital media conferences in the region. 

This is part of a series of Meetups dedicated to exploring the amazing experiences and products created through Virtual and Augmented Reality.  This will be an event that is equally entertainment as well as education based.  

If you would like to present and demo your AR/VR product, or show a VR or 360 film which you have made, please email Paul at [masked]

Agenda:

6:00PM Check-in

6:30PM Introduction and AR/VR talk

Our presenters will include

Alex Handy, founder and owner of VsportR 

Alex, a rare veteran in the recently reborn world of VR, will be giving a 15 minute discussion related to Virtual Reality and transhumanism, and how Virtual Reality will possibly change the way we think and even the way our brain functions.

Ken Henderson, Co-Founder of Breaking Fourth 

Ken, an avid fan of all forms of storytelling ranging from gaming to film and theatre, is the co-founder of London-based virtual reality studio Breaking Fourth. He is the executive producer of the world’s first long-form virtual reality drama for mobile VR, Ctrl. Ken will talk about how to create powerful and emotional stories for Virtual Reality. 

Bobby Thandi, VP Digital at Dubit (digital studio),


Bobby will discuss the emerging market for VR and how children’s content could be adapted for virtual environments.  Whilst consumer level VR has arrived, creators are cautious about children and how they are reacting physically and psychologically. Producers need to learn what makes VR unique, appealing and beneficial for kids. Bobby will also demo Bogglebox, the first kid-specific download site for virtual reality apps and games.

7:00PM AR/VR Filmmakers and Companies short presentations
