Second time round makes you work even harder. Thanks for all your emails and kind words in response to our very first newsletter. This week’s edition is bigger and better. There’s a lot to unpack. You’ve been warned :)
We cover a groundbreaking demo at SIGGRAPH, bastion of developers and engineers, and where storytelling innovations are unveiled (remember Steve Jobs previewing TOY STORY back in 1995?) 
Brian Seth Hurst wrote such a profoundly useful primer on live action VR production, frankly I’m surprised that it even exists. (Luckily, the Producers Guild of America thought so too). Then there’s Will Renny’s philosophical essay about a ‘new renaissance’. Scroll down below to read them.
If you missed the “limited time” simulcast of MR. ROBOT VR, no prizes for guessing: it is now online. We also have direct links for you to watch NOTES ON BLINDNESS and THE INVISIBLE MAN.
As always, if you’re working on something cool in VR or have a great story you’d like me to share, just hit 'reply’ to get in touch :)
Enjoy, and thanks for reading.
See you next week,
