Virtual Reality and the Future of Film and Television

Jasmine White

The evolution of story telling hits another milestone with the introduction of the Oculus Rift VR set. The VR set will definitely change how content makers craft their stories. All of a sudden, we’re left to think about how to  transmit a story with this new medium. I imagine that viewers will feel completely immersed in a film like never before. I would probably never watch a horror movie again!

I would love to create movies that allow viewers to make certain choices for the protagonist, bringing the interactive choice of video games to movies.

I’m concerned about how VR will change the social aspect of the movie and television watching experience. The headset and headphones immediately put up a barrier between you and your partner. I’m curious to see how people react and acquaint this tech into their lives.
