Storytelling in every new medium requires a journey to discover how to best take advantage of its powers. In the early stages, Baobab Studios discovered which old techniques work, and which ones needed to be discarded in favor of a new approach. Are the challenges of VR actually this new medium's greatest strength in the evolution of storytelling? How do you direct a viewer's attention? Are VR experiences films, games or neither? Baobab Studios CEO Maureen Fan and Chief Creative Officer, Eric Darnell, the team behind the award-winning VR animation 'INVASION!', share their learnings from the front lines of this new revolution in immersive storytelling.
