VES BAY AREA PRESENTS REALITY EVOLVED: The Challenge of Creating Immersive Media
VR & AR are maturing into legitimate mediums on their own. In our panel discussion we’ll hear from three local artists who live, learn and earn in immersive media. Attendees will hear about advances in storytelling, what is working and what isn’t and unique techniques and problem solving approaches.
