Immersive Journalism

New Frontier Gateway
136 Heber Ave.
Monday, January 25, noon–1:30 p.m.

Immersive journalism has had a recent explosion since The New York Times sent out one million virtual reality cardboard devices, turning what was once a rarely used term coined by Nonny de la Peña into a new form of journalism that could potentially go mainstream. ABC News, The Wall Street Journal, and The Guardian are also exploring the medium.

What are the implications and possibilities for this medium? Is there a new set of ethics we need to consider? And how are practitioners approaching creating content? This discussion includes Nonny de la Peña (CEO, Emblematic Group), Dan Silver (executive producer, ABC News Digital), Ben Solomon (video correspondent, The New York Times), Sandy Smolan (co-director, Click Effect), and moderator Ingrid Kopp (senior consultant, Tribeca Film Institute).

Panelists:
Nonny de la Peña (CEO, Emblematic Group)

Sandy Smolan (co-director, Click Effect)

Moderated by Ingrid Kopp (senior consultant, Tribeca Film Institute)
