Thank you to everyone who applied for the Music VR Backers Fund. Judges are reviewing applications, and will announce on the 20th of April.
In partnership with Music Victoria, the Victorian Music Development Office (VMDO) and Moon Mother, Inverse has created a first of its kind Music VR Backers Fund to support our local entertainers.
Victorian entertainers will have the opportunity to film their act in immersive VR live, allowing them to connect with fans worldwide. The acts will be able to diversify their income via the Inverse platform and reach those audiences who are unable to physically attend a live event.
20 entertainers are being selected to film a bespoke performance in a made for VR venue in Melbourne’s inner city. Each performance will be live broadcast through Inverse’s VR and 2D streaming platform as part of the Beyond Boundaries Festival taking place from April 2021 onwards.
Successful applicants will be fully guided by the team at Inverse to deliver an outstanding ‘Made for VR’ experience.
Applications close Sunday 4th April at 11:59 PM
with winners announced on April 20.

Why film in virtual reality
Enhance your act through virtual reality
Inverse enables entertainers, venues and event organisers to open up a whole new experience economy by connecting to audiences through filming in virtual reality (VR) technology. Performers can create a visceral and fully immersive experience that transport audiences beyond any limitation. Create high levels of realism through simulated or real-world 3D environments, limited only by your imagination.
Reach New Audiences
What does a great VR performance look like?
Inverse uses industry-leading 8K 3D virtual reality technology across up to four cameras. Viewers can then freely jump between these at any time they choose. For the entertainer, this opens up entirely new creative realms for their performance. Place the viewer next to you on stage, backstage, side stage, front row, at the bar - the opportunities are only limited by your imagination.
Virtual reality allows for the viewer to feel present and close to the action, making the performance feel intimate. Entertainers who use the VR camera as their number 1 fan create the most powerful experiences through the feeling of ‘money can’t buy’ access.
