Dan returns (safely) from Las Vegas aka “work conferences.” We recap his experiences getting to see, play and learn with the latest in drones, VR, 360 and the (free) Davinci editing suite. (Respectively - not all at once). We talk about the slimming down of content generation. The “you no longer need [insert expensive thing here]” advances at NAB for 360 videos, LED lights that no longer need gels, drones that don’t need controllers. Live stream kits the size of a laptop! Face tracking and object tracking enabling gimbals or tripods to follow moving items, ie a knife in a kitchen. Dan drops his theories on storytelling in the 360 format. Specifically, dialogue cannot happen more than 90 degrees apart, because of the unnatural movements it creates for the viewer. Each level turned needs a pay off, and reason to turn. Motivation needs to drive the turn. Think differently? Let us know.
