Hang Out with Ioulia Isserlis.

VR: Blurring the lines between Cinema and Gaming

In this Hang Out session, director and producer Ioulia Isserlis will walk you through the full process of creating immersive VR. Virtual Reality is a unique new medium for storytelling. It lets the viewer enter a cinematic universe and become an active protagonist of a narrative.

In the talk, Ioulia will share her experience in making immersive VR experiences that are based on cinematic universes. She will talk about the production of KOBOLD VR and PAGAN PEAK VR (which both premiered at the Venice Film Festival) and the upcoming project VORTEX.


Date: September 28th
