Come out to VRDC and learn to make great interactive VR characters

Come to VRDC in November and hear Limitless chief Tom Sanocki (a veteran of Bungie and Pixar!) talk about designing 'Gary the Gull', an interactive VR film that talks to you -- and you can talk back!

Winter is coming, and that means November's inaugural standalone Virtual Reality Developers Conference is coming up fast.

Today, conference organizers are happy to announce that Tom Sanocki, a veteran of Pixar and Bungie who's now the CEO of Limitless, will be speaking at VRDC about how to build compelling, interactive entertainment for VR.

In his talk on "Building Interactive VR Characters in 'Gary the Gull'"  Sanocki will speak to how Motional and Limitless built 'Gary the Gull': an interactive VR film featuring a seagull that talks to you -- and you can talk back!

Sanockhi will start with how interactive VR characters work, and how you can design stories where the viewer can communicate with the character to influence how the story is told. He will also talk about Limitless' VR creative development process for story and art, plus their unique method of previz for interactive scripts and storyboards. And no talk is complete without stories on what went well, and what went terribly wrong!

So go to the VRDC website now and register to attend the conference, which will feature a plethora of great VR/AR talks spanning games, entertainment, and beyond into subjects such as healthcare, journalism, travel, manufacturing, retail, live events, real estate, training, and so much more.

VRDC 2016 will take place November 2-3 at the Park Central Hotel in San Francisco. For more information on VRDC 2016, visit the show's official website and subscribe to regular updates via Twitter and Facebook.
