Open Call: New Trajectories in Volumetric Filmmaking
ThoughtWorks, a global software consultancy with an arts residency based in New York City is partnering with Scatter and their groundbreaking volumetric video software Depthkit to offer a funded artist residency focusing on volumetric filmmaking technology.
- Mixed reality
- Multi-user interaction
Scatter, a Brooklyn-based creative company, produces immersive experiences while building the tools that empower creators of different backgrounds to create their own volumetric work. During the residency, Scatter will provide technical and creative support which could range from hands-on Depthkit training, to weekly check-ins or networking within the volumetric community.
The residency dates run from June 10 to September 27, 2019, and artists should be available to work from ThoughtWorks in New York during this time. Individuals who need to apply for visas should be particularly sensitive to recent issues surrounding work visas for the U.S. and consult with authorities in their own country for assistance in crafting their applications to visit New York City.
This sixteen week residency comes with a stipend of $11,000. We are able to provide a letter of intent to any external funding agencies that might facilitate with the residency.
