Virtual Reality: What’s Next with Content Marketing
When it comes to visual storytelling, the world is no longer flat. Virtual Reality is quickly becoming the “what’s next” with content marketing, including mixed reality and more. Brands large and small are tapping into this new art and science, creating experiences that touch the heart, invigorate the soul and stay with the audience long after they pass the technology by. Sarah will display and explain some fantastic VR campaigns, and teach us the new language of photogrammetry, videogrammetry, haptics, navatars, social VR, and more. We’ll learn the VR storytelling methodology in a nutshell, and review new technology that won’t break the bank. Best of all, we’ll all surface with a roadmap on how VR can build our brands, in strange and mysterious ways.
