VR Storytelling and Empathy

Jill Basmajian
Vestige (VR), Terminal 3 (AR), and Spheres (VR) all pull the viewer into emotionally provocative experiences. How does such an immersive experience transform the viewer? Where does the viewer "fit" as the story unfolds all around them? Producer Jill Basmajian demonstrates how mixed reality technoligies are changing the nature of interactive media in ways few people anticipated.

She brings to the table over ten years of experience in development and production ranging from independent features, network movies, television series, and as of 2015 immersive content.
