Nokia and Technicolor have announced a partnership under which the two companies will work together to create new VR content utilizing Nokia’s OZO+ camera and OZO content creation tools.
The first project will be a series of 360 Masterclass sessions to be held at the Technicolor Experience Center (TEC) in Los Angeles. The initial course will give professionals an in-depth look on how to create compelling VR films and how the medium differs from traditional cinematic experiences. As part of this partnership, OZO+ will have residency at the TEC.
The TEC is where artists and scientists from across the industry come together to realize the full potential of immersive media. By uniting talent from Technicolor and its award-winning creative brands with partners from fields as diverse as gaming, animation, traditional media and technology, Technicolor enables the ideation, exploration and creation that pushes the boundaries of what immersive experiences can be.
“In the creation of immersive content, live action cameras are key to the storytelling process, and Nokia has invested a lot of time and research in understanding how to provide content creators with the tools they need to produce high quality image capture,” said Marcie Jastrow, SVP of Immersive Media and head of the TEC.
Csilla Kozma, head of Content Relations at Nokia Technologies, said the VR partnership “allows us to elevate our relationship [with Technicolor] and share the key learnings we have gained in virtual reality with a wider audience through a series of masterclasses.”
