[ DOCUMENTARY SERIES 10 X 30' ]
An exciting new form of entertainment has taken the cultural landscape by storm. The success of immersive, interactive and participatory projects in the fields of Theater, Film and the Arts points to a revolution in the way that consumers relate to narratives and experience creative works, and it is completely redefining what it means to be an audience member. While traditionally, viewers experience creative works passively, typically remaining in one seat or location for the duration of a work, the foray into immersive work invites viewers to become part of the story, blurring the lines between where real life ends and the experience begins. In a world jam packed with a continuous onslaught of information, how do storytellers and artists capture their audiences and keep them engaged? A growing trend is by completely immersing them into the story. The documentary series IMMERSIVE.WORLD offers a comprehensive look at this new direction of storytelling in the United States, featuring interviews with artists, filmmakers and actors, as well as scenes from today’s most exciting shows, films and exhibitions. A series that explores the current explosion of interactive experiences. Through interviews with artists, producers, directors, curators, and fans, each episode explores a different aspect of the immersive experience.
