Immersive Experience Creator

About the education

Create the future of the metaverse!

Learn how to create immersive VR/AR/XR experiences!

You will learn to analyze, evaluate, and produce projects within VR / AR / XR and other immersive media with regard to technical design, content, design language, visual trends, and target group. Theoretical knowledge is combined with practical exercises in storytelling, scripting, and narrative for immersive media.

The focus is on knowledge in the fast-growing immersive sector, on the possibilities of the medium, and on the recipient’s perception and cognition. You gain knowledge in analyzing results within the medium, in order to be able to determine whether they correspond to the requirements set by the end user and the customer. This also includes knowledge of strategy for productions that is linked directly to the target group and the business benefits.

To succeed as an immersive creator, you need knowledge of how to pitch ideas, create visual presentations, conduct customer meetings, and workshops. The training gives you knowledge of different technical formats, playback, delivery, and storage.

LIA (lärande i arbete), also known as internship is a part of the program. The practical part of your internship/LIA deepens your learning and provides you with the work experience required to develop today’s and tomorrow’s immersive experiences. You will also get the opportunity to build your network and create relationships with future employers in the duration of the program.

Selection Process

 

If we receive more applications than we have seats, we will assess applicantions by the score in their work samples (keep scrolling for more details).

 

The applicants with the highest score, regardless of location, will be offered a seat to the program, and other eligible applicants will be in our wait list.

 

Work Sample – What to submit?

 

A short story that you have created, and would like to develop into an immersive experience.

 

The format for your story is free choice. It could be a script, storyboards, a video or animation, audio, flat or 360 photo/video, moodboards, concept art, light projections, LARP-setup, live performance or a 3D world / environment in a virtual venue like Mozilla Hubs, VR-chat etc. Or any combination.

 

In short, anything that shows your initiative and view of storytelling in immersive narrative formats.

 

What to Showcase?

 

Your work sample should be focused on describing your view of immersive storytelling and showcase the field you would like to explore. However, you can always add your portfolio or mention other ideas you have worked on in the last paragraph of the document you submit.

 

It doesn’t have to be a polished ready-to-be-released experience. Prototype or a concept will do just fine!

 

Format for work sample submission

Maximum five (5) pages.

 

Save in PDF format.

 

Name the file [firstname_surname.pdf].

 

Make sure any links to third-party or other services (Mozilla hubs, Vimeo, Shapes XR, etc.) are accessible and made available to un-registered users.

 

 

 

Is prior tech knowledge mandatory?

 

Producing immersive experiences requires some knowledge of the techniques on how to make them, (or why they don’t work)  so it is preferable to have some sort of technical knowledge, but it is not a requirement.

 

There are no specific requirements for any software. You can use the software that best suits your needs, for now.

 

Most importantly is your intention, that you have started looking into how to explore immersive experiences or how to create them.
