VR Headsets do a pretty good job of tricking our eyes, but they mostly ignore our ears. We’ve partnered with Pyramind and Dysonics, a premier media school and sound technology company, to workshop how to tell incredible stories and create immersive visuals through sound.

In our full day workshop, create your own immersive 3D/360 soundscapes for VR video! We promised you hands-on and you’re going to get it. Walk away with your very own, unique 360 video, complete with positional audio and 360 soundscapes.

Taught by some of the leading experts in the field, you’ll become an overnight success in VR sound design, and come away with an entirely new toolset for telling your VR story.
