Oculus Bootcamp Helps VR Filmmakers Tell Nonprofits’ Stories

VR FOR SOCIAL CHANGE: Some call virtual reality the ultimate “empathy machine”—it lets viewers literally see through another’s eyes. One organization wants to help a new generation of filmmakers take advantage of the field’s growing potential. VR for Good, a philanthropic initiative from Oculus, announced an opportunity for 10 filmmakers to tell the stories of 10 nonprofit organizations through VR.

Selected filmmakers will receive funding, tech, post-production support and one-on-one mentorship with industry veterans. They’ll also participate in the “Oculus 360 for Good Bootcamp,” which takes place July 26-27. To apply, filmmakers must be at least 18 years old, have some film production knowledge expertise and submit an application through the VR for Good website
