If you are attending NAB this year, be sure to check out, “Virtual Reality: Immersive

innovative creatives trying to crack the nut of interactive narratives in
VR. They’re Robert Stromberg (“Maleficent”, “The Martian VR Experience”),

On the VR news and documentary front, there’s “Being There – Virtual Realty

and newsmakers all creating compelling (and sometimes intense) immersive
content. They are, Bryn Mooser, Ryot Media, Nico Chauls, USA Today Network,
Danfung Dennis, Condition One and Aaron Luber, Google VR. That session is
Tuesday, April 19, 10:30 AM – 12:00 Noon, South Upper Hall, S223.
