The Norwegian Film School (through CEFIMA), along with NFI LAB are launching Off-Piste — the Virtual Reality Storytelling Lab for Norway.

Application deadline is 23rd September 2019
Visit to apply.

On October 15th we start with an inspiration day at Inland Norway University of Applied Sciences, Lillehammer.

Over the course of seven days filmmakers joined by developers, artists, animators, musicians, makers and storytellers of all kinds will voyage to a mountain-top hotel where they will develop original VR experiences and forge a community that will help shape Norway’s VR landscape.

A group of experienced international mentors, led by Mark Atkin and Tom Millen of Crossover Labs, will provide participants with in depth knowledge of the current VR landscape and the evolving language of VR storytelling.

Participants will form multi-disciplinary teams around project ideas which they will develop into a working prototype over the course of the lab. Members of each team will take on a variety of roles as they learn about the VR production process from ideation to funding to having a finished product.

The teams will then have the opportunity to present their projects at the Nordic VR Forum in Hamar on the 24th of October, and will receive further mentoring after the lab in order to pursue funding to fully realise their experiences.

We are looking to curate an interdisciplinary group of 24 creative professionals from a range of backgrounds. We are looking for individuals who are passionate about their work and are excited about the opportunities that VR might present for the practice. Prior experience with VR is absolutely not required.
Applicants could come from a variety of backgrounds.

These include, but are not limited to:
Film & TV, Theatre, Games, Fine Art, Dance, Music, Animation, Creative Technology, Radio & Podcasting, Writing, Journalism, Design, Illustration, 3D Modelling
