IMERSA 2018 Call for WIDs and WIPs
IMERSA invites interested immersive media producers to present their Works in Development (WIDs) and Works in Production (WIPs) at the 2018 Summit. These are paid submissions that are designed as a great opportunity for producers to get focused audience feedback on their shows in development and in production. Attendees will complete surveys after each presentation, and presenters will have the opportunity to tailor the survey instrument to their needs, providing specific questions they want answered.

Works in Development ($250 per entry)
Five minutes of dome time to present your “pitch” for the show that you are developing using Powerpoint, HD video clips, or a handful of fulldome stills. Entries in this category should include shows that are not fully funded or not yet in production. The idea is to see how well your show concept resonates with the audience and to get constructive feedback on how you can effectively adjust your pitch for greater impact and audience connection. Your total presentation including all media and speaking should be no more than five minutes.

Works in Production ($500 per entry)
Seven minutes of dome time to present a sample of your show that is currently in production using fulldome video. Entries in this category should include shows that are currently in production or post-production. You may show a trailer or a longer clip from the film that captures the essence of the production or the specific portion of the film for which you are seeking feedback. Your total presentation including all media and speaking should be no more than seven minutes.

Specific questions that you would like to add to your audience feedback form should be submitted with your entry. Please limit the number of “essay” questions and provide “yes and no” or “on a scale of 1 to 5” rating-style questions. The total number of questions is limited to eight, and all questions and responses should fit on one half sheet of 8.5" x 11" paper. As an example, previous feedback forms have included the following questions:

» Do you license digital fulldome shows for your institution?
» How many shows do you plan to license in 2018?
» How likely are you to license this production?
» Are you interested in this production?
» How would rate the strength of the show title?
» How would you rate the aesthetic quality of the production?
» Do you have any comments or suggestions for the filmmaker?
» May we contact you? (Please provide an email or phone number.)

We look forward to screening your content at the IMERSA Summit and providing audience feedback to your work.
