Liz Rosenthal – Immersive Media
The British expert will speak about Trends in Immersive Storytelling: VR storytelling has come along the way in a short time. In just four years, it has evolved from an experimental form, hidden in the depths of pioneering university research departments, to works of art and entertainment that are wowing audiences in world-class festivals, galleries, museums and theme parks. Liz will give an overview of how storytellers are using the medium to approach a wide spectrum of genres and experiences, from social impact, fiction, animation to multiplayer, multi-sensory location based story worlds. She will demonstrate the huge opportunities that immersive technologies offer to connect and engage users in ways not previously possible with flat screen media and will give insight into the wide variety of players supporting the space.
