”The world that you build has to reflect the identity of the person in it”


How do we allow persons to actually feel what’s it’s like to sit in solitary confinement? VR has this possibility but VR is different from normal storytelling mediums, because what it does is changing the idea of a story. So how do we create good and meaningful VR film with this in mind?


Jessica Brillhart is the principal filmmaker for VR at google, before that she joined Google’s Creative Lab and has won numerous awards for her shorts and documentaries. She finds different ways of approaching VR by figuring out where people look, what’s engaging and who the user is, all this to create meaningful universes and good stories in VR film.
