    Pass Type: VRDC Pass - Get your pass now!
    Vault Recording: Video
    Audience Level: All

    See how Motional and Limitless built 'Gary the Gull': an interactive VR film featuring a seagull that talks to you and you can talk back! Tom will start with how interactive VR characters work, and how they design stories where the viewer can communicate with the character to influence how the story is told. He will also talk about their VR creative development process for story and art, plus their unique method of previz for interactive scripts and storyboards. And no talk is complete without stories on what went well, and what went terribly wrong!

    Takeaway

    You will learn the creative development process in making 'Gary the Gull', learn about character-driven interactive VR storytelling, and be inspired to think of new ways to push VR storytelling even further as part of the VR community.
