Submit your short film for a chance to have it showcased at the Shape event, which will be held at AT&T Park in San Francisco on July 15-16, 2016. Here are some details on our new video category:
Immersive Video: People have been creating visuals for centuries, but a new creative class has emerged spawning a revolution for today’s content developers. The barriers to entry have been lowered and a growing number of independent filmmakers are looking to showcase new video experiences that ultilize the latest set of emerging technologies. These new videos can make viewers feel as if they are in a different world. AT&T seeks to give these content creators a platform to showcase, not only their talent, but their stories in this new age of filmmaking.
Show us, through your work, that the next generation of video entertainment is upon us. AT&T is looking for 1-2 minute videos that showcase the creative talents of independent content creators within Virtual Reality, 360-degree video, and 4K videos.
