iLunch - Narrative VR session details 

Virtual reality offers immense opportunity for storytelling, allowing creators to immerse their audiences in the story world. It allows for heightened empathy with subjects and provides new methods for exploration.

At this iLunch, our panel of experts will discuss the ins and outs of narrative VR. We'll look at both business and technical considerations when creating narrative VR projects. Where do you find funding and what kind of partnerships can you undertake? What are best practices when directing, writing, editing and designing sound?
