Since covid 19 stroke the world, my activities regarding 360° video have stopped, of course.
I never had too much time to take an interest in social virtual reality platforms, and use them to meet and work with my peers.
It was always in my mind. But during the lock down Andrey Lunev created a whatsaap groupe called XR-CROWD, regrouping 250 Virtual Reality professionals.
The main goal of this community was to help existing festivals to convert their real events into virtual ones.
That’s how the #zeroeventVR poped up. Every friday, members from the XR Crowd were experiencing together all the existing platforms, often with their creators offering a tour. To discover all of those and analyse the bugs that could exist du to the number of users.
We tried Vrchat, Vrroom, Rainfall, Recroom, Bigscreen, Vrbella, Learnbrite, Mootup, Engage, Mozzila Xr Hub, and few others.
Since then, those steps helped the Laval Virtual to organize their event in the platform Vrbella.
First, Andrey asked me with few other members to help him organise those friday meetings around #zeroeventVR.
As our partnership worked well, he asked me to help him coordinate the XRBASExperiment. The first business event around investors and startups totaly made in VR, in the platform ENGAGE.
So I trained to use Engage with the team of Diversion Cinema, we helped to organize and coordinate the event and on the event’s day, I was the “out of VR support chanel”. Helping people to install Engage, to navigate into it and give informations about the event.
