Tribeca Film Fest's VR, AR ranged from creepy to cute

Culture
[SOUND] We're gonna talk about the Tribeca Film Festival, which came to New York over the past week, right Joan? Yeah. And it included a bunch of immersive story telling experiences. Joan, you went to All of them? Yeah. It's about all of them? Yeah, so [UNKNOWN] festival has an immersive program which [UNKNOWN] 35 [UNKNOWN] with the couple of others here [UNKNOWN] directly. And I went to see all of them which I never done At a film festival, which took a lot of dedication. But I was, you know, I was able to pull through for C-Net. So one of the interesting things that you mentioned in your story is What did you see? Or what did you find out? Is it kind of one of those things where the future looks very promising relating to this. I mean I feel like these festivals always give me An impression that's really positive of where this kind of story telling can go and nobody else ever gets to see it, so everyone else has a take on, like we are stupid, it's over. [LAUGH] before it even began, but I was like you don't get to see the cool stuff, because most people don't get to see it, but what I will say about this year, I thought it was really interesting that you're starting to see, it kind of like both end of the spectrum, things are kind of hitting their stride. The companies that have been doing it for awhile, and are well funded Funded, have really sort of reached the point where they know what they're doing. And then so they can do interesting things well with polish. And on the other end of the spectrum, people that have never tried it before, it's becoming more accessible for people that don't have a ton of money. One of my favorite experiences was made by a bunch of aboriginal high schoolers, which is somebody that you almost never see in media period, let alone something that's usually expensive to make. Virtual reality, so I thought that was really interesting. When do you think that more people are gonna experience these types of things? When is it gonna become a little more mainstream, where it's not just the folks that go to these film festivals that actually get to feel this kind of thing? Among creators, especially during the Tribeca Film Festival this year, there was a lot of Kind of cautious optimism about Facebook's Oculus Quest coming out, it was announced in the midst of Tribeca Film Festival and a lot of people that are creators, they feel frustrated that headsets haven't taken off to the degree that they hoped they would and there was sort of a cautious optimism that maybe the Oculus Quest is finally sort of the Mainstream accessible headset that will allow people to see what's cool about VR, but also allow them to do it without having to have a really expensive computer and all these wires hanging off you. Yeah, it's definitely cheaper, but it's not cheap. It's $400, but it is a standalone VR set, so that is definitely interesting that that's the chatter.
