Learn & Create your first AR Effect with Facebook Spark AR
Got pandemic-induced boredom from staring at your own face over calls, Zoom, or selfies? No worries, we’ve gotcha. We've launched a free program with our friends over at Facebook Spark AR to encourage you to learn how to make your own augmented reality effects. Through this bespoke course, it has never been easier for first-time creators to make their own effects. All you need is seven hours and plenty of imagination!
To inspire and engage you further, we are curating talks with creators, inspiring articles, and explainers to go alongside the free seven-hour long course. So, what are you waiting for?
Once you have the basics down and have completed the Spark AR course, design and produce your own AR effect that reflects your creativity and style and submit it here.We will choose a minimum of 6 and up to 10 AR effects for Instagram as Selected Creators, who will receive $500 each. Creators do not need to have direct experience in AR but should be ready to learn. Follow Reality.House's Instagram for more updates with creators, inspiring articles, and explainers.
The Spark AR site has loads of resources that show you how to get started, but here the key specs and our recommendation for your Instagram AR effect:
