Join us for a very special VRLA panel where we explore how the emergence of VR is changing the entertainment landscape, the nature of storytelling, and the ability to engage audiences. We will explore the archetype of VR in entertainment and its effect on the outlooks of four top-tier content creators across digital media, film and television, gaming, and 360 video. Then, we'll dig into the reality of VR - it's potential, effectiveness, and challenges as a viable business, evolving technology, and creative medium.
