Alexey Marfin Workshop at NCTU
 

This week I taught a (remote) visual effects workshop at the National Chiao Tung University in Taiwan!
 


 

Excited to share the work from my “VR Film Sets” seminar at SCI-Arc! The students created VR (virtual reality) environments inspired by movie scenes.
 
Films have always used architecture to tell stories. The worlds, cities, and spaces of cinema are responsible for creating the social, cultural, and political contexts of its screenplays. This year, all the movies we explored share a common design idea: the space and the setting represent a conflict/hierarchy/tension – from “Parasite” (2019) and its socially and physically stratified urban environment – to “Hollywood Hong Kong” (2001) and its literally and figuratively overshadowing tower complexes.
 

Alexey Marfin Workshop at CityU
 

Over the past few weeks I taught a (remote) workshop for the School Of Creative Media MFA program at City University of Hong Kong
 


 

Join us at SCI-Arc tonight and tomorrow for VR Film Sets II – an interactive exhibition of VR work by my seminar students. The projects take five scenes from period/historical movies, and reimagine them as a series of fully-digital virtual reality (VR) environments.
