Workshop and Lab

Free and open to the public!

Within the last five years, a host of Internet-based technologies have enabled an explosion of interactive video experiences. From choose-your-own-adventure feature films to immersive music videos, artists and brands are creating engaging content that empowers audiences to step into the story. Convergence invites NYFF attendees to explore the possibilities by building their own interactive videos using the Vidzor platform, participating in a series of short workshops, and hearing about the future of interactive cinema from some of the top minds in film, technology, and art. A primer workshop will help participants explore the core concepts of what interactive video actually is, and will screen examples of interactive shorts created by Vidzor. They will then get to take a “Production 101” class, in which members of the Vidzor Team will give them hands-on help to create their own short interactive videos.
