Nonny de la Peña talks immersive journalism at The Conference

By taking advantage of feelings of presence that comes from wearing virtual reality goggles, experiencing real-time graphics and hearing evocative audio, audiences can ‘enter’ a fully immersive recreation of a news, documentary or non-fiction story. By putting participants on a scene as the story unfolds, life-sized around them, it allows unprecedented access to the sights and sounds, as well as the feelings and emotions, that accompany witnessing powerful events.

Nonny de la Peña, Founder of Virtual Pyedog will talk about using gaming platforms to create news and non-fiction and her latest project Project Syria, commissioned by the World Economic Forum. Watch it all unfold in the Conference video below…
