Whether you're crafting a branded 360 video experience or real-time room-scale immersive fiction, good VR storytelling is hard.
That's why, at the inaugural standalone Virtual Reality Developers Conference this November, Soap Collective creative director Logan Dwight will be presenting an engaging presentation about VR tale-telling titled "From Branded Content to Immersive Fiction: Directing Techniques for Better Storytelling in VR."
VR is more than games, film, or theater: it's a convergence medium that requires understanding all of these forms. As storytellers and brand creatives, The Soap Collective have spent years exploring multi-media narrative. Using a technique they call the "Cone of Focus", the Soap team has developed guidelines that maximize immersion, support user comfort, and can help us all tell better stories in VR.
So come to Dwight's talk and you'll learn how to map out a user's area of focus, direct their attention, and maximize immersion in VR stories. You'll be able to apply these principles in everything from 360 video to full room-scale VR, enabling you to plan and execute better immersive storytelling.
So head over to the VRDC website now and register to attend the conference, which will feature a plethora of great VR/AR talks spanning games, entertainment, and beyond into subjects such as healthcare, journalism, travel, manufacturing, retail, live events, real estate, training, and so much more.
VRDC 2016 will take place November 2-3 at the Park Central Hotel in San Francisco. For more information on VRDC 2016, visit the show's official website and subscribe to regular updates via Twitter and Facebook.
