Google Presents Virtual Reality: The Art of Presence


Tuesday, January 26, 3:00 p.m.
New Frontier Gateway

New forms of filmmaking, specifically virtual reality, involve a viewer being "there"—having the agency to explore, to tell their own stories, to exist in a space that was for so long separated from them. With this connection comes vast responsibility, where both the creator and the viewer’s mindsets must be respected, considered, and celebrated. Join our esteemed panel of virtual reality creators as they dive into their methodologies for approaching this exciting and daunting new aspect of crafting. Moderated by Scott Macaulay, editor-in-chief of Filmmaker Magazine.

Panelists: Nonny de la Peña (founder, Emblematic Group), Gabo Arora (director, Waves of Grace; senior advisor, United Nations), Jessica Brillhart (principal filmmaker for VR, Google), Anthony Batt (co-founder and executive creative director of WeVR), Patrick Osborne (director, Pearl, a Google Spotlight Story), Louis-Richard Tremblay (executive producer, Interactive Studio NFB), Amaury LaBurthe (CEO/co-founder of AudioGaming; creative director, Notes on Blindness)
