The Seattle Office of Film + Music’s first monthly Mixer event of the year allowed guests to immerse themselves in the latest virtual reality technology while networking with other industry professionals. Hosted this month at the Vera Project, attendees tried out HTC Vives and demos from multiple VR/AR/XR/360 video creators. Local nonprofit SIXR, UW CoMotion, and XR cinematic content creators Electric Dream Factory were all on hand to show guests the latest and greatest in this pioneering industry.
Seattle’s booming tech scene makes us one of the most exciting places to be in VR technology. The January Mixer showcased some of the best of this new technology and the possibilities it offers for new ways of filmmaking and creative storytelling.
The Mixer is held on the last Wednesday of every month, featuring rotating activities and presentations throughout the year. Guests of all ages are welcome to come enjoy food and drinks and mingle with Seattle’s creative professionals.
The Mixer will be hosted at Seattle Center throughout 2018, with February’s Mixer shaking down at KEXP on February 28. Have something you’d like to see at an upcoming Mixer? Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
