SIVE 3, March 23rd 2018

Many thanks to everyone who came and shared their ideas and practice at the third Storytelling in Virtual Environments event at Phoenix Digital Media Centre. The morning included a talk by the fantastic Catherine Allen (Limina Immersive).

Catherine led the creation of two of the BBC's first VR experiences and now curates VR for the UK's leading arts venues with her company, Limina Immersive. Catherine's current work is known for bringing VR to broader audiences who wouldn't describe themselves as early adopters and she is part of the BAFTA VR advisory team and has judged VR for Sheffield Doc Fest, Encounters and Raindance film festivals. Catherine produced the BBC’s first commissioned VR documentary, the award-winning Easter Rising: Voice of a Rebel, which has toured festivals globally, showed for six weeks at the National Theatre in London and was described by Broadcast Magazine as 'genre-defining'. In her spare time she writes for Wired magazine and sees a lot of theatre. Before VR, Catherine worked at the educational app publisher, Touch Press; winning a BAFTA on the Disney Animated app, with Disney Interactive.

A select group of around 15 participants, all involved in Virtual Realty and Performance, took part in a really exciting and stimulating day and it was a great opportunity to share work and ideas in a critically supportive environment. Watch out for SIVE4, coming soon...
