TimeWave 2014 - 2015
TimeWave 2014-2015 gathers creative media artists and technologists to explore the use of technology in storytelling and to invent new forms of media and entertainment.
On July 10-12, 2015, LoNyLa/TimeWave partners with NYVR to conduct a VR (virtual reality) hackathon. Hosted by Interactive Telecommunications Program (ITP), NYU, the VR hackathon will take place at the NYU Tisch building at 721 Broadway. The event will gather creative media artists, designers and developers to implement rapid prototypes of diverse VR formats - experiences, storytelling, applications and games. Following the NYC VR hackathon, we will kick off a London VR hackathon shortly thereafter. UK dates and location to be announced.
In autumn 2015, we aim to launch the next incarnation of the TimeWave festival. Given the evolution of technology in the media and entertainment space, LoNyLa/TimeWave is brainstorming the concept of an interactive playground. We envision the formats developed in the lab and VR hackathon to take yet another leap and become polished work for audiences. TimeWave 2015 details - dates, location and format - will be announced.
The programme is produced by LoNyLa (London-NY-LA), a transatlantic initiative fueled by graduates of Yale University and the Yale School of Drama and a powerhouse Anglo-American team.
