Is This the Future of VR Film?

Still from The Turning Forest.

In late April, I checked out the Tribeca Film Festival’s storytelling tech showcase Storyscapes with Manoush Zomorodi, host of WNYC’s tech show Note to Self. Between bouts of nausea, we talked about the possibilities of virtual reality, from therapeutic uses like the undersea breathing exercise we underwent to consumer products like The Turning Forest, the BBC-sponsored children’s story we watched (or experienced?). You can listen below, or at WNYC’s site here.
