Nice! How was the "Empathy in VR" talk?
Hey John, These camera nuggets were pulled out of much more in-depth coverage of the SXSW films. Please do check out more of the interviews and posts from the festival, which go more deeply into several aspects of the films' productions: http://nofilmschool.com/2016/03/everything-youre-missing-sxsw-2016
Great points. You should have been on that panel!
Great point, Eric.
Genuinely curious about why you would say that. Would love to hear what has and hasn't worked for you when pitching projects.
I totally hear where you are coming from, but many of the people making VR are coming from traditional filmmaking, and the ones who are doing it well are those who are embracing what's best in both forms of media. A lot of the VR films now are stories, with points of view and dramatic arcs, but they allow for more exploration and points of view to be shared at once.
