About the talk: VR Geschichten
“VR Geschichten” (VRstories.blog) is a blog in English and German founded by Pola Weiß. The big question is: How do we tell a good story in virtual reality? There yet is no answer, but many promising attempts. “VR Geschichten” accumulates explorations and findings into existing solutions, delves into literature, scours the internet, asks experts, observes craftspeople and creative types… The blog is meant for intrigued filmmakers, storytellers, and people curious to hear about the fascinating stories revolving around this subject.
