Christy Admiraal: "There’s no question that anyone who considers himself or herself part of a fandom will have a different read on a piece of media from someone on the outside—whether it’s due to taking in all supplemental material, shipping a certain pairing, participating in fan theorizing, or some combination thereof—but exactly how does their experience differ from a reader or regular viewer who’s never dived any deeper into non-canonical material?"
Darren Emerson: "Unlike the wall of noise that comes from 24 hour news coverage, and commentary via Twitter and Facebook in the aftermath of a tragic event, the VR headset delivers an experience that allows the viewer space to get closer emotionally to the subject matter and create a deeper level of understanding." [Interviewed by Jess Linington]
Nicole LaPorte: "It's no secret that advances in technology are pushing VR well beyond gamers and into areas like education, medicine, and of course, entertainment. [...] But can VR be incorporated into kids' games? And more importantly, should it, given that most kids are just starting to get a handle on AR (actual reality), let alone digitally re-created reality?"
Saba Hamedy: "Over the weekend, Indigenous Media released a feature-length horror thriller. But the film didn't bow in theaters or on a streaming service. Instead, it was quietly uploaded onto Snapchat."
Michelle Fitzsimmons: "Virtual reality is more than an emerging technology. It's redefining how filmmakers tell stories, bringing a brand-new set of challenges to a medium that's been refined over the last 100-plus years."
Anrick: "Like the cinema from the past 50 years — so much of which is still compelling, gripping and emotionally captivating today — we should design VR content to be a part of the long term virtual landscape."
Michael Cavna: "Disney is thinking so far beyond sequels — first with its Marvel Cinematic Universe, next with its Star Wars galaxies — that it is now fully, successfully engaging viewers across interlocking narratives. Each time a film like “Civil War” can land with audiences — building upon and/or introducing a dozen key characters — the universe can move not just linearly, but also multilaterally."
Jon Evans: "Even in stationary DomeVR, you can twist and turn and spin and look at a full 360 degrees of immersive environment [...] there is no clear demarcation between “story space” and elsewhere, as there is with a TV or movie or game screen. Your mind keeps telling you that everything is story space."
Bogar Alonso: '“My job is to inspire viewers to make the choices I want them to make,” says [Eric] Darnell. “At my best, I inspire the viewers to look where I want them to look when I want them to look somewhere specific. And when they do, I give them something interesting to focus on and surround that point of interest with other elements that the viewer will naturally compose into the shot that I want them to compose. If I do my job well, ideally, 100 percent of the viewers have the same experience.”'
