Unit 1, Building 64, Main Gate Road, Historic Dockyard Chatham, ME4 4TZ, United Kingdom (map)

This hands-on workshop is designed for individuals eager to learn the art of crafting their own 360-degree films.

It aims to inspire them to embark on a creative journey, harnessing innovative technology and a creative mindset.

What is 360 filmmaking, and why should you join us?

360 filmmaking represents an innovative and immersive storytelling approach in the modern era. Whether experienced through a VR headset, on a mobile device, or via social media, a 360 video captures all angles simultaneously, placing you directly within the scene, allowing you to explore your surroundings just like a VR experience. What sets it apart from VR is the fixed point of view. Embracing 360 filmmaking is crucial for the future of the art and entertainment industry.

No prior experience is required! Held at A+E Lab in Chatham!

From creative thinking to shooting and delivering the film to your audience, we will go through each stage together step by step. Most importantly, we want this to be your film with your own creative input and unfold your unique storytelling strength.

Whether you are working in a commercial business, marketing company, education sector, creative industry, you name it, we will tailor our approach to you and hope to discover your world and explore your ideas during the workshop, as much as we will share ours.

The ticket also includes one free ticket to experience AΦE's world-touring 360 VR theatre artwork, WHIST. More info:
