The Future of Screens: Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality, and the Potential for Stories

New Frontier Gateway
136 Heber Ave.
Sunday, January 24, noon–1:30 p.m.

The past few years have shown us that mobile phones and computers are just as widely watched as TVs and theatre screens. It has changed the way we view content as well as how we create content. Currently, we're diving into an era in which the screen is changing beyond previously recognizable forms. Virtual reality, augmented reality, projection mapping, holograms, and a bit of everything in between are shaping a new landscape of not only how content is watched but also a new approach to storytelling as a whole. Join Diana Williams (Lucasfilm Story Group), Robin McNicholas (creative director, Marshmallow Laser Feast), Gaia Dempsey (co-founder and CMO, Daqri), Richard Marks (chief of virtual reality, Playstation VR), and Jason Rubin (head of studios, Oculus) to take a peek into the future.

As you use our Online Archives, please understand that the information presented from Festivals, Labs, and other activities is taken directly from official publications from each year. While this information is limited and doesn't necessarily represent the full list of participants (e.g. actors and crew), it is the list given to us by the main film/play/project contact at the time, based on the space restrictions of our publications. Each entry in the Online Archives is meant as a historical record of a particular film, play, or project at the time of its involvement with Sundance Institute. For this reason, we can only amend an entry if a name is misspelled, or if the entry does not correctly reflect the original publication.
