Virtual Reality Storytelling

Virtual Reality has become a buzzword this year. While the technology has captured the attention of the popular culture, screenwriters have seen it as a new storytelling medium. Producers and major studios have began to invest money in VR projects and every one needs a writer who understands how to construct narratives in this new immersive space. Come hear from successful writers in traditional screenwriting who have made the jump into VR, producers who are funding the projects, and VR storytellers who can help you understand what still applies from the traditional narrative world and what new skills are required, in this exciting panel, moderated by John Bucher, writer for LA-Screenwriter.com and the author of Storytelling For Virtual Reality (Rutledge/Focal Press 2017).
