About this Event

VRSW is a meet-up for the immersive technology cluster in South Wales hosted by Creative Cardiff, in partnership with Orchard Media and Events Group Ltd.

Virtual Reality South Wales (VRSW) will next meet-up at Orchard Media and Events Group Ltd, on Thursday 28 with a focus on using virtual reality in the film and television production process.

The meet-up will bring together the cluster to hear from Dan May, co-founder of design studio Painting Practice who'll be talking about working with immersive tech for BBC One and HBO fantasy adventure, His Dark Materials.

Dan May co-founded Painting Practice to help pursue his passion for the combined worlds of art department and visual effects. His diverse roles over the company's 12-year history have reflected this ambition. Most recently Dan completed work on Andy Serkis' Jungle Book. Disney's Beauty and the Beast, Watership Down and is currently working on the new adaptation of His Dark Materials as an art director. Dan also loves Animation. In 2014, he had the opportunity to work with Passion Pictures as Production Designer on Nike's epic 5-minute world cup commercial "The Last Game". When not burning his eyes in front of a computer screen Dan likes to surf, hike and box.

Over the years Dan has shared his success with Bafta Nominations in Production design for Black Mirror, a Bafta win for Best VFX for Day of the Triffids and an Art Directors Guild win for Gravity.

Marc Real from the BBC's Innovation Lounge will then share a short case study using 360 cameras for 'over capture' to create linear content. There will be an opportunity for a Q&A and attendees will also have time to share news, discuss projects and network as well as try a few experiences in our marketplace.
