The next level of storytelling

Ashley Taylor Anderson provided a glimpse of the future of storytelling in her recent B2C article.  “Immersive VR” – the ability of users to interact with the story in virtual reality – promises to be the big next step in storytelling, and of course marketing.  Soon we’ll see “gamification” of VR, the use of VR for documentaries (such as The Guardian’s exploration of solitary confinement, below), and the use of VR for animated films.

How should historians use VR?  At Narratio Vitae (“life story” in Latin), we develop family narratives for customers by deeply researching existing family stories and building out families’ lineages.  We’re always eager to integrate new technology into our work and we’d be interested in your thoughts.
