Virtual Reality for Yr 10 Media students

Last week, the Brisbane Powerhouse hosted the Australian Virtual Reality Film Festival for 2018. This gave the Arts department the opportunity to take Year 10 media students there, to experience a showcase of some of the world’s best virtual reality short films, documentaries and creative works.

Armed with virtual reality goggles, students had a chance to view and interact with work from next-generation filmmakers. An exciting night was had by the students as they stepped into a back alley of graffiti in Melbourne, had dinner with female fighters in Afghanistan, watched a love story in a fantasy world, and explored the world of Manus Island. Lots of discussion followed the evening, as students gained a better understanding this ground-breaking form.
