Immersive Storytelling: Writing VR Scripts with Evette Vargas

Event Date: Saturday, February 16, 2019 || Speaker: Evette Vargas || Check-in: 12:30 pm ||

In immersive storytelling, worlds come to life in dramatically different ways than in traditional storytelling. Audiences can adopt varying perspectives, sometimes becoming protagonists, antagonists, and other characters. In VR, audiences step into the story and can interact with characters and objects inside of the virtual world. But, how do you write the script? In this lecture, Evette Vargas will introduce you to the Immersiveplay scriptwriting elements, which she developed for Final Draft. Vargas will explain the differences between traditional and immersive scriptwriting and discuss why immersive scriptwriting is relevant to your writing career. See more details below:
