John S. Johnson & Alexis Wichowski :  "The media we use to tell stories has evolved considerably in the millennia since our ancestors swapped their first campfire tales. Regardless of the form stories take, the storyteller always has the same goal: to transport an audience — get people to stop thinking about the here and now and focus on the world of the story."

Games allow us to explore uncharted worlds, enhance our own creativity and help us understand and solve complex problems in ways we never thought possible. Next-generation gaming experiences should keep these core ideals alive. If all else fails, games should ultimately just be fun, right?

Jess Linington:  "Immersing your audience in hyper-real situations can evoke intense reactions - How do you balance the potential of projects with the ethics of immersion?"

James Coombes's curator insight, April 4, 2015 6:16 PM

“You should design for these issues – they aren’t an afterthought, they should be built in.”

Minna Kilpeläinen's curator insight, April 5, 2015 12:39 PM

Virtual reality experience can evoke intense reactions among the participants. Audience testing and the possibility to debrief experiences afterwards make sure the audience trust you as an immersive reality storyteller in the future, too.

Melanie Arrow:  "Immersive storytelling is a technique that is finding its way into new spaces such as theatres, games, documentaries, advertising and journalism. The aim is to give people the feeling of really ‘being there’, calling on 3D gaming, virtual and augmented reality technologies in the process. Tech is making our media more entertaining, hard-hitting and unique."

John Fink:  "We discuss the thrilling multimedia documentary experience at Tribeca, along with select highlights from the festival’s VR arcade."

Vivalist's curator insight, April 27, 2016 5:54 AM
The film festival just ended with a custom show called The Bomb which blew some minds with live music and immersive screening.

Earlier this year at SXSW, I met Brazilian film director Ricardo Laganaro who worked on the beautiful semi-spheric experience at the Rio's Museum of Tomorrow. He was also convinced that VR headset were killing the social bond and that other directions integrating a common experience should be explored.


Adding live music is definitely a plus. For example, it really served the No Man's Sky during last year's Playstation Experience: A night under no man's sky
Adding VR-like 360° degree display to this would have been incredible :)

Finally, the film selection in the Tribeca's VR Arcade was great, helping to uncap the potential for this new media.
Among the creators there were Chris Milk and his VRSE as well as Standford Virtual Interaction Lab...
It might be a great place for VR and experential story telling in the future for sure...

Melanie Ehrenkranz and 'digital culture guru' Frank Rose  discuss "how the future of storytelling will largely be shaped not just by the shiny new tech toys of the now and near future, but also largely on how storytellers integrate them into narrative practices of the past."

"I think that VR is an incredible tool, but it’s not synonymous with immersion. As with any other technology it’s only as immersive as the storyteller is skillful."

Interesting use of social media in storytelling. The creators of 'The Last Hours of Laura K' spent a crucial amount of time before the launch of the project creating online profiles to their characters and documenting Laura's last day on earth. Now it's the users' job to find the killer.

Mike Jones:  "What place has a writers-room in the development of a museum exhibition? How do you write a spatial, immersive narrative for a museum audience? What is the role of Genre and Dramatic Storytelling to a Museum collection?"

Justin Nalepa's curator insight, February 11, 2014 11:18 AM

I'm really intrigued by this thought process:

 

"This idea of research positioned as a Secondary rather than a Primary phase of exhibition development, may seem an anathema to traditional museum process but it is fundamental to an audience-centric rather than curator-centric result. By framing the storyworld at a high level first, the process of researching has parameters built from the intended experience of the audience, rather than the subjective or personal inclinations of curators or an pre-determined idea of ‘knowledge that should be imparted’. "
