Interactive Media Governors Chris Thomes and Lori H. Schwartz, along with their Peer Group Executive Committee, invite you to:`

The Immersive Storytelling Revolution

Come one, come all for a fabulous evening of interactive learning and virtual networking. We'll open the virtual venue (from Filmocracy) early for pre-panel schmoozing, followed by our fantastic Immersive Storytelling Panel. Finally, we'll transition to our virtual holiday mixer with fun, festivities and a few special surprises. Everybody is invited, but space is limited. So don't delay! RSVP now for the virtual event of the holiday season.

As the television industry navigates the on-going challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic, innovations in remote collaboration and virtual production have empowered filmmakers to create content safely, securely and efficiently. Immersive formats (VR/AR/MR) have been a significant beneficiary of this shift, as storytellers have embraced virtual tools to create the next generation of interactive programming. In this presentation, we’ll talk to creators, producers and strategists at the leading edge of immersive media to explore the production and distribution challenges, and opportunities they face in telling great stories about leveraging established IP in new formats.

Moderated by:
Charlie Fink, Forbes Contributor, Author, Faculty Chapman University

Vicki Dobbs Beck, Executive in Charge, ILMxLAB at Lucasfilm
Eugene YK Chung, Founder & CEO at Penrose Studios
Samantha Gorman, Founder & Co-Director, Tender Claws

Since we can't get together in person, we'd love for you to wear your most outrageous and over-the-top holiday gear. Pull out all the stops and don your blinky lights, your ugly sweaters and impractical hats. We'll be running a contest for the best holiday get-up. Winner will receive annual bragging rights plus a special prize!
