OCTOBER: WE HOWL & SHARE WISDOM
little GIANT Wolf believes that ideas inspire other great ideas, building on themselves like compound interest, until we ultimately have a wealth of positive impact. When we share knowledge the world gets a little better. That's why we want to let you know about our founder and CCO, Skye Von's upcoming talks, throughout the month of October, on topics covering VR, XR, and transmedia storytelling. Come through and say hello! No lone wolves here!
MAVRIC CONFERENCE TALK: TRANSMEDIA - EVERYONE IS A HERO
While Joseph Campbell may have decoded the essence of storytelling with his Hero's Journey, transmedia argues that it is dead. Today's audiences crave the collective journey where everyone is a hero, themselves included. At the The Mixed/Augmented/Virtual Reality Innovation Conference (MAVRIC), Skye will break down the intricacies of transmedia storytelling and how we can use it to create more meaningful audience engagement across multiple media platforms combining emerging and traditional media.
When: Thursday, Oct 18 from 3:15pm - 4pm
Where: University of Maryland in College Park, Washington DC, MD

NYVR PANEL: XR FOR CHANGE - THE CREATORS' PERSPECTIVE
Join us at the NYVR Expo for a discussion on how emerging technologies in VR can change a viewer's perspective by using multi-sensory elements. We will explore how telling a story in a 3D, or even 4D plane, creates an immersive experience for the viewer, allowing them to have a more personal experience. Additionally, we will discuss how this form of storytelling can be used to show the viewer how they can make a difference in the world. Skye will be highlighting our Howl For Change XR Social Media Impact Movement and is joining a fantastic panel lineup with Samantha Quick (The Daily 360 |The New York Times & 30 Ninjas), Danielle Robinson (Decisions: The Party’s Over |Diageo), Winslow Porter (Tree |New Reality Company), led by Asif Khan (Games for Change).
