For the most part, AR is making headway through face filters and ephemeral content like Snapchat's Dancing Hot Dog. But how might this technology be used for non-fiction/journalism stories around homelessness, immigration and other serious topics? This panel brings innovative journalists who are pioneering ways to incorporate this technology into their type of storytelling.
1. How news orgs are producing mixed reality experiences on deadline and often on a tight budget.
2. Cultural challenges in getting support for these projects.
3. How others can begin experimenting with these types of projects.
All, but with an eye to active creators more than curious. That said the audience can be Storytellers curious about AR, 3D model artists, photogrammetry/videogrammetry, Unity/Unreal devs, coders and more.
