Reimagining Narrative: Hollywood’s Embrace of Gaming

Mar 13, 2022

10:00am – 11:00am CT

The panel will discuss how Hollywood (home of traditional narrative) is finding success transforming gaming IP (interactive, non sequential stories) into compelling cinematic and streaming content—and vice versa. We'll discuss what elements need to be kept, changed or removed as writers, directors and producers across industries work to preserve a story’s fundamentals while embracing new formats, including screens, game platforms, print and in-person experiences.
