MediaStorm Founder Brian Storm is scheduled to speak as part of the Stanford University’s XR Consortium Spring 2024 Seminar Series.

The series includes lectures by a host of researchers and industry speakers, with talks about how virtual and augmented reality technologies are creating change in healthcare, education, storytelling and other industries.

Talks in the series will take place every Tuesday from April 2 to June 11 at 4:30 p.m. in Hewlett 102 on the Stanford Campus.

Storm’s presentation, which is entitled CD-ROM, Web, Film, Spatial: 30 Years of Storytelling @ MediaStorm will be held on June 11, 2024.

This is description of Storm’s talk:

Spatial video has the power to create an emotional resonance unlike any media technology that has come before.
That is because it has the ability to allow us to feel like we are in the scene. Not in our own imagination, like with radio. Not from a distance like with video, but right there, alongside the people in our stories.
XR has the power to foster compassion and understanding in a way we are just beginning to imagine.
What happens when people, maybe on the other side of the world, are experiencing an event alongside someone else?
We are unable to avoid the reality of what our actions and decisions mean for one another.
Immersive storytelling has the power to change the world.
Join, Brian Storm, founder of MediaStorm, as he presents a 30-year career in storytelling through one technological shift after another.
