Beyond The Screen and Into True Immersion: How Storytelling Happens in the Viewer’s Mind

May 29

02:00 PM - 02:30 PM

Description

When the screen in front of us becomes the world around us, new possibilities are opened – not just for entertainment, but for virtually any type of content or experience. Hear from Chris Bobotis, head of Immersive at Adobe, whose job is to help artists, filmmakers, and creative visionaries bring their talents to the new canvas and re-discover – or even reinvent – the art of narrative. Whether inventing new forms of creative expression, transforming customer experiences or igniting new business models, we can re-invent storytelling and content creation tools as we know them. ​Join us as we discuss storytelling in the context of technology and explore the evolution of stories across mediums.

Ori Inbar, Co-founder and Executive Director of AWE and Super Ventures will kick off the 10th AWE USA with a special welcome address and his annual state of the industry. For 50 years, computing has been a two-dimensional representation of a three-dimensional world. Now, tech giants and thousands of startups who are seeking growth opportunities beyond mobile have set spatial computing on a trajectory for exponential growth. Most large corporations are adopting spatial computing to improve their businesses driven by strong evidence it delivers measurable ROI, and consumers begin to appreciate the radical benefits of this technology which could signal the next dimension of humanity. In 2019, everyone must enter the next dimension to understand the impact it’s bound to have on their lives and businesses.

Spatial Computing is changing our understanding of AR/VR and MR today, at the dawn of the Age of Light. AR/VR and MR have long been understood as the next step for personal computing. But the emergence of Spatial Computing in self-driving vehicles, robotics, IoT, and screen free displays, breaks the mold of Personal Computing and unleashes computers into the world around us, enabling new forms of multi-user collaboration based on natural interaction, intelligence, proactivity, and social awareness. Spatial Computing and AR/VR/MR share the same core technologies - sensors, compute, AI, machine learning, 3D capture and rendering, ultra fast networks and compute. Creating new kinds of hybrid applications for AR/VR/MR that go beyond Personal Spatial Computing is one of the most exciting opportunities for AR/VR/MR innovators today. And, as the future of these technologies is tied to a bigger shift from electronics to photonics, we are also pioneers of the Age of Light who can help realize a bright future for humanity.

We are at the beginning of a new era in storytelling. Through increasingly immersive and self-directed experiences, digital reality is cracking wide open our understanding of storytelling due to its unique ability to merge the roles of listener and storyteller. While the elements that make stories resonate aren’t likely to change, for marketers to fully realize the opportunity digital reality presents, we will need a new storytelling language that deconstructs and recomposes the elements of story for this new and powerful medium. This presentation will explore how these technologies play into brand storytelling and look at some leading examples of how brands are using digital reality storytelling to build their brand and deliver results.
