CAEL2104: Mixed Reality Production

2024 unit information

Mixed Reality (MR) refers to the emerging suite of virtual reality and augmented reality technologies. MR is a developing medium that commentators believe will have a significant impact across a broad range of fields. This studio-based unit introduces students to the theory and design of mixed reality production for application in creative and industry contexts, including the creative arts, digital storytelling, documentaries and journalism. Students will examine best practice examples of MR experiences and will learn a range of tools and techniques in order to develop two MR projects.
