Organized by Kaleidoscope in collaboration with RYOT and the Saul Zaentz Innovation Fund at Johns Hopkins University, DevLab is a six week content accelerator for immersive films, games, apps, art, and experiences. The program incubates 10 new projects each year with weekly lectures and mentorship from a multidisciplinary group of advisors.
Through hands-on workshops, engaging talks, and round table discussions, rough ideas become solid projects. The program culminates with First Look, our premier marketplace event held this year at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, where participants will present their projects to industry leaders for a chance to secure funding and distribution.
Selection Criteria: DevLab 2019 will select ten (10) XR projects which are currently in development and in need of funding, distribution, and support. All genres of immersive content will be considered including XR art, games, apps, films, and experiences. Working prototypes are not required but encouraged.
We value craftsmanship and diversity. We look for teams from unusual backgrounds with both the artistic and technical skills required to produce great work. Show us something new. Make us reevaluate our assumptions.
EcoMap Baltimore is here to help entrepreneurs find the resources they need to build startups, small businesses, and nonprofits in their communities.
