Halloween is one of our favourite times of year at Girl Geeks Toronto. So if you too are looking for a great way to gear up for October 31st, join us this month as we dig into virtual reality with a frighteningly fun discussion and demo of the Sleepy Hollow Virtual Reality Experience for Oculus Rift!

Launched at San Diego Comic-Con and based on the popular FOX television series, our speakers will dazzle you with a behind-the-scenes tour of the Sleepy Hollow Virtual Reality Experience. We’ll be joined by four members of the Secret Location project team that created this hair-raising 3D adventure: Stefan Grambart, Sarah Nason, Steve Miller and Josh Manricks.

The team will break down different aspects of the development, design and launch process for the Sleepy Hollow Experience: developing for Oculus Rift using Unity, the challenges of storyboarding and writing narrative for 360° 3D, the art and video asset creation process for 360° 3D, and the San Diego Comic-Con launch.

If you’ve never experienced the awesome Oculus Rift, here’s your chance – the Secret Location team will also give every Girl Geeks guest the chance to demo the experience.
