Virtual Reality: Documentary Outside the Frame

A New Way To Tell True Stories

Virtual Reality has quickly become the most-talked about technology in the media industry. From the BBC to Hollywood, media-makers around the globe are experimenting with VR as an entirely new way to tell stories. But what are the opportunities for non-fiction storytellers in a medium that puts the audience at the centre of the action?

Virtual Reality: Documentary Outside the Frame brings together Australian and international pioneers in documentary Virtual Reality storytelling to share their experiences and reflect on the opportunities that arise when working in this medium, and the new thinking that the format demands of documentary makers. Moderated with time for questions from the audience, this panel provides an opportunity to gain insight into this new media format and understand the challenges and opportunities it presents for the telling of non-fiction stories.

Panellists include: Julie YoungAstrid Scott, (Senior Producer/Experience Strategist, ABC), Katy Morrison (Producer, VRTOV).

Moderated by: Jess Linington (Researcher/Producer, i-Docs / VRTOV)
