We teamed up with Deutsche Welle Akademie, Mediadesign Hochschule and The Center of Investigative Reporting to bring Europe´s first VR Journalism Hackathon to Berlin.
The future of storytelling will not solely rely on flat screens. The stories of tomorrow will offer a door to actually step into them in order to explore and experience them first-hand. What is needed now are experiments and brave pioneers. Because journalistic experiences in 360 or in Virtual Reality will once again change and enhance the ways to tell stories in the beginning 21st century. Instead of condemning or discussing new means of production theoretically we want to embrace new technologies and play around with them.
If you are a journalist, programmer, designer, illustrator or VR enthusiastwho would like to push things forward this event is for you. You get:
- 36 hours of prototyping
