Imagine a world of online shopping where you’ll never again have to purchase anything with only a small, blurry product picture to reference; where you can see stunning 3D models of every sneaker, couch, and coffee mug before you purchase; where you’ll never have to wonder what a product will actually look like when it finally gets delivered to you. Join VNTANA’s Ashley Crowder as she explores how simplifying the creation, management, and distribution of 3D assets across the web, AR, and VR benefits both brands and consumers; how XR is being utilized to create a more seamless and advanced e-commerce experience, driving revenue and fostering brand affinity.

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.

These immersive stories leverage alternative funding models and new distribution channels, like location-based and VR storefronts. Without an industry status quo, leading women are stepping up to blaze trails in immersive media.
