Virtual reality symposium at Hofstra

A panel of virtual reality storytellers met on April 12 in Hofstra’s Lawrence Herbert School of Communication to educate students and faculty on virtual reality technology and how it is being utilized journalistically.

James Pallot, co-founder of Emblematic Group and Carla Borras, series coordinating producer of FRONTLINE were among the panelists who spoke on both the perks of virtual reality, as well as the drawbacks, like glitchy video and high camera prices.

Not every story lends itself to be told in VR, but when it works, it is a highly effective means of storytelling. Check out the video below to see highlight from the symposium as well as examples of virtual reality.
