Making VR Trailers with Kert Gartner

  • Red River College (Room P107 - CGA Manitoba Room) 160 Princess Street (map)

We are ending our Video Game Speaker Series with a bang. Local legend and trailer maker extraordinaire Kert Gartner is going to be breaking down how to make VR trailers that really connect with audiences.

First impressions are lasting impressions; you only get one chance to truly make an impact on your audience when it comes to your trailer. Unfortunately, Most VR Trailers fall short and don't connect with viewers because they're presented with shaky, unfocused, and un-cinematic first-person footage. 

Filming an avatar in VR from a third person perspective allows you to create dynamic and interesting shots that capture the essence of being in the game. From 'Rick & Morty' , 'Space Pirate Trainer', 'Super Hyper Cube ' and more, learn how filming inside your virtual world can create the best visual impact and create a stronger emotional connection to your viewer.

When: March 15th  | 7pm (Doors open at 6pm)
Red River College (Room P107 - CGA Manitoba Room)
160 Princess Street
Cost: Free (Registration Required)
