VR Broadcasting: The Changing Face of Journalism
Wednesday 7th November, 12.00-13.00
Upper Foyer, York Theatre Royal
Immersive journalism promises to bring audiences closer to the story than ever before, but what does that mean for the “traditional” news story? When a location becomes the main subject – and the viewer an eyewitness – does the journalist become obsolete? In this session, panellists discuss how VR filmmaking is changing the face of journalism in the 21st century, bringing audiences ever closer to the action on a global scale, immersing them in breaking news stories.
