Storytelling in Virtual Reality

Alejandro Davila, Masters of Creative Technologies (March 2016 – July 2017)
Alejandro is producing New Zealand’s first Virtual Reality Story Experience in True VR.

People Involved:
Alejandro Davila – MCT researcher
Stefan Marks – Primary Supervisor
Gregory Bennett – Secondary Supervisor

Description:
Alejandro is producing New Zealand’s first Virtual Reality Story Experience in True VR. Content creators in the entertainment industry and academics alike have been struggling with gimmicky techniques to direct audience’s attention in Virtual Reality. Through the research carried out at Colab, Alejandro has come up with a simple technique that has its foundation in the fundamentals of storytelling which uses VR as a tool to tell a story, rather than letting the technology overwhelm content creators.

Alejandro’s proof of concept ‘The Green Fairy’ tells a story about fairies who live in traffic lights and will be available for download in the VR Appstore for all VR devices.
