Virtual Reality and Webpages
Robert Hernandez, @WebJournalist, says the time has come for using virtual reality in web journalism.
The associate professor of professional practice at University of Southern California Annenberg demonstrated virtual reality programs at an Oct. 27 talk at the University of Hawaii at Manoa.
Projects are underway. One private group posted a virtual reality video of what a victim of a date rape drug goes through, Hernandez said.
Small handheld cameras that produce three-dimensional videos can be purchased for as little as $200, he said.
The get-together was sponsored by the Hawaii chapters of the Online News Association and Society of Professional Journalists.
The Hawaii chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists will hold a meeting on Wednesday, Nov. 9, to take nominations for next year's directors and officers.
It will start at 2 p.m. in the conference room of Pacific Basin Communications, Room 202, 1000 Bishop St.
Notices of the 2016 Excellence in Journalism contest will
be going out probably in mid-January. If you don’t see anything in your email by
Jan. 20, contact email@example.com
· Planning for the Gridiron show has begun. 2017 is a Gridiron performance year.
