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.
These projects have seen amazing success. From world premieres at SXSW and Tribeca to featured showings at Cannes, VR World Congress, and beyond, they've showcased the magical storytelling potential of VR on a global stage.
Now in its second year, Creators Lab pairs up-and-coming filmmakers with unique causes to create transformative VR experiences that demonstrate the need for social change in breakthrough ways.
Check out the impressive experiences that have come out of the program in year one:
