See why over 5,000 people have attended AT&T Workshops! 360 and VR films: hype or great potential? When Katherine Bigelow, Academy Award winning director of Hurt Locker and co-director of the 360 film The Protectors, was asked, she responded “If the desire to use it is content-driven and you want to have it be an experiential, totally immersive, empathetic understanding of the subject, then, yes, 100 per cent…What's exciting is how physical it is. It's not passive.” In these free 3-hour workshops, Mike Cuales and Derek Rowe give an overview of 360 video filming and filmmaking, including the equipment needed and the special considerations and techniques used, whether simply shooting 360 video or getting into the unique aspects of directing, filming, acting and editing. Mike and Derek will demonstrate the concepts by shooting an actual scene and then showing the post-production workflow needed to turn it into a 360 video. When you leave the workshop, you will have the knowledge to create your own 360 videos…and to better appreciate others who make them. *** On-site RAFFLE! *** 360 Video Kit raffled at each session includes: - Samsung Gear 360 Camera - Samsung Gear VR Headset - Samsung Galaxy Phone So, join the AT&T Entertainment Group and NextGen Interactions for these special workshops on 360 Filmmaking & Production.

In the past few years, he has focused his efforts on the exploration, production and application of interactive 360º VR video in higher education courses and University-wide initiatives. Outside of the University, Mike has worked with many commercial entities as well as the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences, Museum of Art, City of Raleigh Museum, Research Triangle Park, Duke Marine Lab and RTP STEM in the Park to explore applications for virtual reality in entertainment, marketing, STEaM outreach and community engagement.

Among other projects, in partnership with filmmaker Arthur Earnest he created a series of documentary-style 360 films for the NC Museum of Art. In 2016, Mike partnered with Derek Alan Rowe from WildEyesVR to develop a series of science-based VR field trips for kids of all ages. One of the films produced, BugVR, was exhibited at the NC Museum of Natural Sciences BugFest event which was attended by over 35,000 visitors. He has hosted VR-based exhibits for thousands of attendees during events like BugFest, Ansel Adams Masterworks, NC Museum of Art's Educators Expo and a range of STEM Expos for K-12 education.
