Virtual reality and the future of story telling by Glen Keane

Design is a balancing act–a dance between a person of vision and the moment to moment world in which he or she lives.

Good design happens when that person reacts to moments with something new, a perspective that no one has seen before. In the world of animation, technology has the single biggest impact on those moments. Technology changes constantly and we seem to be on the verge of a brave new frontier.  They are calling it “virtual reality animation” and as the name suggests, it has married the immersive three dimensionality of virtual reality and the mark making of your favorite drawing software. The end result is a 3D canvas that will change the way we look at animation.

In this short documentary Glen Keane talks about the power of this new tool and what possibilities await.
