A significant gap in the industry has been identified when concerned with “Virtual Production Capabilities” in New Zealand. Most training institutes and programs only focus on using game engine technologies for teaching game development.
In contrast, the film and media industry only focus on the traditional Camera, Scriptwriting, Lights, Acting and Art Departments, which has created a void for the emerging field of Virtual production and the talent who understands the complexities of bridging the gap between traditional storytelling mediums and gamification.
As a think tank training program, Virtual Production Dojo aims to fill this void by offering hands-on training in Virtual Production and Gamification, and more significantly, supporting the ethnic communities in New Zealand and globally.
The program aims to add resilience and confidence in the next generation of graduates and those ready for a career change, bringing a more resilient and curious talent pool into the market prepared for the coming age of virtual production, animation, gamification, and mixed entertaining experiences by building Virtual Production Capabilities and talent pool and engaging Ethnic Communities and provide better economic growth opportunities.
For anyone who may be considering to upskill in the emerging field of Virtual Production they are currently accepting enrolments for their pilot program starting in September 2021.
