Description

The new medium of immersive computing offers so much opportunities for expression, and at the same time puts creatives in a tricky spot when they have to consider all the parameters that is beyond their control. When every users have different ergonomic and environmental preferences, it's important for us to design and build dynamic experiences that fits into the audience's context. We will explore why proceduralism and machine learning play a crucial role in growing content and experiences in the new spatial medium. Followed up with examples and case studies, we will review the insights and lesson learnt on how to use technology to augment new forms of hardware input and creative directions.

In theatre and film, the 'mise en scène' refers to the 'placing on stage', or arrangement of design and scenic elements. Often this takes places within a frame of a stage or screen, but in XR, the literal frame of storytelling is removed. This session will go through the elements of mise en scène as seen in theatre, and best practices for XR.
