Exploring the language of immersive Entertainment: a field guide
SPANISH (SIMULTANEOUS INTERPRETATION)
This talk will focus on the nascent field of narratives in immersive environments.
While providing examples from recent Felix & Paul Studios productions, Sebastian will explore the challenges and complexities that telling stories in a new medium brings to the table. While you could think of immersive experiences as an extension of cinema, most of the rules of the game change when you are immersed in the story and need to be re-thought for what are effectively brand-new media. Everything from suspension of disbelief to image processing and CG cameras is cast under a new light and the learning and unlearning of the rules is what makes Immersive Media exciting.
