Simulacro Project

Funded in 2024 –

The project is an interactive online environment using a virtual set to to simulate audiovisual learning and creation processes. The environment consists of a virtual TV studio with three sets, to interactively manage lighting and filming schemes, based on the following functionality/usability scenario: five users with Quest 3 virtual reality glasses take on the roles of cinematographer, director, and three camera operators. Each user occupies the space through an avatar that allows them to move through the space and to modify the position and configuration of different light sources, as well as the cameras. In the latter case, control parameters related to the basic principles of photography are integrated, interacting consistently from a technical standpoint with the space and the arranged light sources. Additionally, these users can communicate with each other through the virtual space.
