The VR Writers Room Live sessions bring togther experts and thought leaders from across the VR and Entertainment industries to discuss the future of narrative design and creative storytelling for Immersive Entertainment formats. This session is a live panel hosted and moderated by the creator of the VR Writers Room, Tanya Laird. Each session consists of a minimum of three speakers from differing industries to provide alternative viewpoints and outside expertise to the conversation.
The original invitation only VR Writers Room consisted of representation from the film, game, TV, comic, theatre, Immersive theatre, Transmedia and OOH (Theme Park) industries. The results of the original research can be found here and include a 15 page whitepaper, more than 4 hours of podcasts and a summary infographic. The VR Writers Room Live sessions continue the original discussion and explore the findings of the original VR Writers Room.
This session is presented in partnership with BAFTA New York and hosted by Google NYC with the support of the VRAR Association LA.
