Pro Capture

Matthew Niederhauser

This advanced experiential production course will introduce students to the latest techniques in 360 video recording and manual stitching, camera-paired Depthkit Cinema volumetric capture, DSLR photogrammetry/retopology, and a quick look at emerging virtual production systems using Blackmagic cameras in Unreal. Alongside an intense technical focus, the course will also deconstruct other experiential works that utilize similar experimental production designs to introduce the expectations demanded by professional productions. The course ultimately hopes to show viable paths for students to engage with immersive media capture pipelines, at an expert level, with an expanded sense of possibility and inspiration.
