Berkeley Premiere of UTURN by Native VR – Creative Director/Executive Producer NATHALIE MATHE will talk about 360/VR production at 8pm.
What happens when a young female coder joins a male-dominated floundering startup that’s deep in an identity crisis?
With a comedic twist, UTURN is an immersive live-action VR series where you get to experience both sides of the gender divide.
A 360 video Virtual Reality comedy series offering full immersion into the daily life of a woman working in tech. At any time during the story, the viewer chooses which point of view to follow: a female coder or her male boss. It’s like editing your own version of the story. We aim to raise engagement towards gender diversity through this inclusive and fun VR experience.
