It was earlier this year when some archived footage of virtual reality (VR) experiences in development at Lucasfilm was pieced together and revealed to the public, and now the company is set to reveal it’s latest work at Oculus Connect 2, Hollywood, next week. An addition to the speaker line-up will bring Rob Bredow, VP of New Media, Lucasfilm, & Head of ILMxLab, to the event on Wednesday, 23rd September 2015.
Bredow will present a session entitled, ‘The Force of Virtual Reality at Lucasfilm’, wherein he will offer ‘a rare behind the scenes glimpse featuring work by the newly formed ILMxLAB’. xLAB is the immersive entertainment arm of Lucasfilm, which combined with Industrial Light & Magic, Skywalker Sound and Lucasfilm itself, is collaborating with filmmakers to create unique VR experiences.
No further details are available at present, though the session will take place at 14:30pm PST, Wednesday, 23rd September 2015. VRFocus will be at Oculus Connect 2 attending this session and will report back with all the latest details from the show floor.
