Adapting Genres to Virtual Reality

New Frontier Gateway
136 Heber Ave.
Friday, January 29, noon–1:30 p.m.

Close-ups, fast cuts, and pacing were all initially accidents that became staples in conveying mood, tone, and story in film. In virtual reality, much of those tools are gone, and with that, our tools to shape genres are also changing. What have we learned so far in approaching story in virtual reality? Join us in an open discussion with virtual reality pioneers Saschka Unseld (creative director, Oculus Story Studio), Jessica Brillhart (principal filmmaker, VR at Google), Eric Darnell (CCO, Baobab; director, Madagascar), and Emilie Joly (CEO, Apelab). Moderated by Yelena Rachitsky (creative producer and head of education, Oculus Story Studio).
