VR for Good Creators Lab 1.0

We launched VR for Good in 2016 by pairing 10 rising filmmakers with 10 nonprofits to champion a variety of social missions while telling their stories in VR. Each team attended our Creators Lab Summit, where mentors and experts gave hands-on instruction in VR filmmaking to help creators develop and bring their ideas to life. Budgets were small, but Nokia OZO camera rigs and post-production services from Reel FX helped us make the most of each film.
