Venue: Liverpool Screen School, LJMU,
“Immersive experiences require novel narrative mechanisms & new language of production… The best technology will not produce the change needed without equal excellence in content production and understanding of immersion as a narrative form” – Creative Industries Review 2017
This research symposium will explore how practice-based researchers, companies and creatives are approaching the emerging mediums of virtual reality, augmented reality and mixed reality for storytelling. Looking at languages of production, narrative mechanisms and approaches to engaging audiences in experiential media across the spectrum of immersive technology.
