AR and Story Telling

Production Track  (Great America K – First Floor)

Adriano Farano (OWNI) – Lasagna journalism? Combining AR and storytelling

Beyond technology itself, the hardest part of any AR experiment is content. And creating great content is the job journalists have been used to do for decades. How to transition journalism to the AR age? Which genres can be melted with augmented reality?

Adriano Farano has been partnering with AR strategist Gene Becker in his Knight fellowship project at Stanford to unveil the stories hidden in the Main Quad, the most iconic place of one of the best universities in the world. In his talk he will offer his findings out of his experiments, offer a definition of multi-layer storytelling or “lasagna journalism” (pardon him, he’s Italian) and sum up the state of AR journalism so far.

Helen Papagiannis (Artist) – Creating compelling content with Story telling in AR

Helen will speak to the future of storytelling and creative applications of AR discussing her process and practice in this emerging technology. AR, like cinema when it was first new, commenced with a wonderment of the technology, with content being secondary. Helen will discuss how narrative and storytelling is expanding in AR, with an emphasis on harnessing AR’s unique characteristics and advancing compelling content as the medium grows.
