I got to talk about Theater & VR Storytelling on the ardeeXYZ Podcast.

I had such an great time on the Ardeexyz Virtual Reality Animation Studio podcast talking about my article on storytelling for VR and theater. Thank you for having me on!

Subscribers to the ardeeXYZ podcast know host Rick Dolishny has an affinity to using traditional theatrical examples to describe one way of thinking of VR production.

Listen back to Sean Stephens discuss theatrical lighting, or Steven Bardel discussing audio… we’ve figured out certain techniques to attract audience attention and tell compelling stories for theatre, and many of the lessons learned apply to VR.

So when author/director/visionary Skye  Von wrote the article ‘4 Lessons Virtual Reality and 360 Filmmakers Can Learn From The Theatre’, Rick was compelled to reach out. And Rick is not alone. Over 337,000 readers read this article with great interest.

Skye’s work goes beyond writing. One of her latest projects is a music-video-VR-experience for the band Aloud, ‘Falling Out of Love’. Are we at a renaissance of the music video?

Skye joins Rick to discuss the 4 lessons for VR from theatre, and other projects she’s working on or inspired by.

Best Movie Sets

I just came across Emily Henderson post dedicated to production designers and their fabulous work. In it she mentions some of my favorite production designs. But of course this is just a small list and we could take hours and days to mention all the amazing film sets, which deserve a mention.

I would like to add that I feel this way about all Wes Anderson films, and I believe that The Grand Budapest is the best production design yet.
