TECHnically Speaking: Brendan Bradley Talks Virtual Production
June 11, 2021
This week's episode focuses on something the industry has become quite familiar with over the past year — virtual production. We were joined by actor, writer, director, producer, and virtual production aficionado Brendan Bradley who spoke with us about his work on A One Act Festival in your Browser (WebXR) — a show produced, rehearsed, and performed entirely in web-based virtual reality, demonstrating several different modes and styles of fully-immersive, virtual performance with a customized toolkit, and user interface.
Brendan established his own lab at New York University for integrating emerging technologies in live performance and supporting the next generation of multi-disciplinary storytellers. During the pandemic, he began releasing free tutorials and case-studies for live performance artists to stream their work from home, including a customizable virtual theatre that allows anyone in the world to perform for their own live, virtual audience for free.
