About the Instructor
Lionel Chok

Lionel-Chok_vr-13.jpg

Perhaps one of the rare few trained and qualified 360 for VR creative professionals. back in 2014,realising that the emerging technology of VR could be could be the game-changer for media and content , Lionel put his 18 year media career on hold  . He quit his job, packed his bag and uprooted himself and his family to move to London to pursue a Masters degree in Creative Technology; specialising in Augmented and Virtual Reality. There, he produced – possibly – London’s first ever 360 Virtual Reality Dance staged at Middlesex University and also Singapore Inside out (London) a VR experience for the touring exhibition by Singapore Tourism Board. After completing and achieving distinction in his postgraduate studies, he returned to Singapore and immediately became a much sought after consultant and speaker in the fields of Virtual Reality.Today, as he did before in the past as a lecturer – he aspires to impart his skill-set to others so that they too, may join him in this exciting new industry! He also creates VR content for creative startup iMMERSiVELY.
