Human stories happen in small spaces - cars, kitchens, bathrooms. I chose 180VR as the medium for my story because the story I was telling needed the unique potential for narrative transport offered by 180 storytelling . In this presentation I will talk about my experience of creating IF, a VR180 film about infertility that tells the story of a couple who are trying (and failing) to have a baby.

This film was a VR180 piece from its very inception and was designed, written, and directed to take full advantage of the intimacy and presence in private spaces that VR180 makes possible. I will describe the working process the team and I used at every stage of the process to fully exploit the narrative and emotional potential of this emerging medium.

Date and time for this talk at IVRPA Belfast 2019 are TBD.
