Step into our dojo! VFX/PDX and OMSI present a night of VR/AR, Portland style. Featuring a presentation from VR champion Isaac Cohen, up from SF and fresh off of his appearance at the A MAZE fest in Berlin. Experimental and emotion-driven would be the best description of Cohen’s varied work, and he’ll be giving his headlining presentation around 6:30pm.
As if that wasn’t enough, we’ll also take a true snapshot of the Portland VR scene and catch up on the latest offerings from our best and brightest, with VR/AR demos from 5:30pm featuring:
Oregon Story Board
All of this built around a Reel Science screening of The Matrix (after the presentation, starting around 7:45pm). A great excuse to revisit this classic on the Empirical Theater screen!
Needless to say this is all shaping up to be an epic night, so tickets are moving fast. Mark your calendars and take the red pill with us on May 10. (always wanted to say that)
Again, the schedule starts with demos with Portland VR/AR companies and studios at 5:30pm in the lobby. Isaac Cohen presents from 6:30-7:45 in the theater. The Matrix screening from 7:45 to 10pm. Dinner? Food is overrated and there’s too much VR to consume. (kidding – OMSI’s snack bar will be open if you can’t eat ahead of time!)
