#HumorStorytelling

Human Presence and Humor Make Us Better Storytellers

Do our immersive media experiences sometimes feel too functional and soulless? Humor can be the agent that humanizes performance and experiences and engages the audience. In this session, we will discuss how the human presence and infusing humor into the presentation enlivens storytelling and underscores the importance of communally shared experience in technologically driven works.
