Shared Experience Video

Here is my video project for our Shared Experience video for Directing and Production class. Earlier I made a previs for this video with how I could have planned my video. I had quite a few ideas written down, but my video had changed due to how much I could fit into the video. All together, I did manage to get the major exhibits at the museum and featured my favorite photos that I had taken. Below will be the previous previs and then the video.

Immersive Engagement Perspective and Virtual Spaces

While going through Multimedia Communications my whole two years thus far in college, I feel like I am swimming in a digital sea and the experience is outstanding. I knew little of the world of VR space and Immersive Engagement before attending college, but before hand while watching documentaries and reading articles on the whole notion, I understood that it would only grow larger from there.

Becoming Immersive in all that we have learned throughout the courses that I’ve taken, it truly seems amazing to know that anyone is possible to take part in the evolution of virtual space and reality. When we take time away from the real world and jump into virtual space, we have the time to take ease from the stress of reality and we have the chance to look at everything in a different light. This really helps the process in which we learn and how we can interact in several different ways that we wouldn’t even begin to think as helpful.

Watching LOGIN2LIFE gave me that familiar feeling of every time that our classes go into Second Life to work on a project collectively.  Joining in social activities online has made things easier to excel in different types of projects and sharing of information. With this type of practice, we learn to communicate effectively in a way that helps with our progress.

As we create objects, media, or other means of work that takes time, we also consider the means of how we can earn money through our efforts. We learn that we can sell our service, monetize our content, and even establish our brands virtually and in reality. This can be taken in consideration in wide-rangers, from gaming, 3D Design, and even selling your content in virtual markets.

Concerning relations, that is also covered in the LOGIN2LIFE video, VR has gone to levels that have really evolved as well that concerns connecting with others. Once seeing the segments featured in this video instantly reminded me of a video that Vice had done. This video features the marketing of communication and use of VR video in the newly rapid growing love industry. Be warned that this video as well has adult content, be advised.

The medical field has also been demanding in the works of virtual reality. Procedures and people seeking aid to help with disabilities or medical need are changing with the times as well. We must follow in the flow of how we can learn to educate ourselves in the newly developing digital era, making the impossible possible. The link below will provide examples of how virtual reality helps those with disabilities.

All in all, the rise of virtual reality is coming faster than ever. Just like swimming, we can learn how to adapt to these new developments in life. In our education, we are still crafting the world around, but also we are crafting the digital world. It’s never too late to take a plunge into the digital sea.

Educate with Awe

With the topic of how we can entertain as we educate, there came to mind a few different ways that have entertained and educated me in media. Some channels that I’ve watched as a kid sometimes had the stylings of edutainment, such as the history channel, national geographic, and shows like Bill Nye the Science Guy, Magic School Bus, and Beakman’s World. These shows have given it’s viewers the fundamentals of learning while enjoying great content provided with the topic of science.

In more modern of times and the spread of the internet at a high peak of sharing newer content, I’ve been enjoying the works of TED Talks becoming drawn out to the discussion at hand. The way these videos bond education and the entertainment of seeing what is being discussed becoming drawn out is truly amazing to watch as the aspect is put in sync. Feel free to see this example in the video below.

Another super effective way that bringing education and entertainment together has been playing strategy games. Games such chess, Magic: The Gathering, and even Othello have been great ways of building our logic and strategy while being immersed into a form of being entertained. Even in the world of Youtube different channels and uploaders help highlight how people can learn more out of the games we play.
