Symposium on Virtual Reality Journalism, hosted by Hammer & Tusk

  • Fairmont Pacific Rim 1038 Canada Place , Vancouver, BC Vancouver, BC (map)

Virtual Reality has been described as the next platform shift, and its applications in journalism are wide-reaching. The New York Times has invested in both 360 video and immersive VR films in its partnership with Google Cardboard - they shipped 1.2 million viewers their subscribers. The Associated Press has launched their own VR/360 channel in collaboration with AMD to feature the news organization’s latest advances in immersive journalism.

The technology is here to stay, and learning how to use it as more than just a gimmick will be a key to content creation in the field of journalism in coming years.

Join Hammer & Tusk as we present lectures, panels, and VR demos in this day-long symposium on journalism and its place in the field of immersive content.
