Lynette Wallworth and Saschka Unseld are at the forefront of an emerging medium. Wallworth frequently explores environmental and social justice themes in her work, and Unseld is creating a collection of VR films with emotions at their core. In this fireside chat, the filmmakers will compare notes on writing and directing for a 360-degree screen. Saschka Unseld (Dear Angelica, Through You) co-founded Oculus Story Studio, where he works as creative director. Lynette Wallworth (Collisions) started showing her work at New Frontier in 2009, when her piece about refugees, Evolution of Fearlessness, startled viewers with its intimacy.
Panels are open to all Festival credential holders on a space-available basis.
