Episode 10 – Virtual Reality in Filmmaking - Mary Matheson

Course director of our MA in Immersive Storytelling, Mary Matheson, talks to us about the exciting immersive worlds of virtual reality and augmented reality, and how these emerging and fast-growing technologies can be used to tell stories in a way they’ve never been told before – allowing us to vividly experience different times, cultures, issues and places. She discusses her latest projects, including a collaborative piece exploring underground clubs for black people in nineteen-eighties London, as well as what impact covid-19 has had on virtual reality, and what the current drawbacks of the technology are.
