    Exploring immersion via the new technologies of an era has long been a part of the avant-garde in theater, film, architecture, and other art forms. The panelists will share their ideas about what contemporary innovations by artists and technologists operating at the boundaries of commercial entertainment may herald for the future of immersive storytelling. Key questions for the participants include: -What are new ways to create (fictional) overlays on everyday life (e.g., Project Tango, Hololens). -What do these changes mean for world-building based storytelling? -What will be the ongoing evolution of the film and television screen as each moves towards a mobile, context-sensitive, and personalized media surface? -What will these new screens, contexts, and surfaces mean for storytellers? -What are the implications of having the authorship of story and code increasingly paired in the creation of immersive experiences? -And, finally, what next directions for immersion are suggested by direct interfaces between technology and the human body? Panelists: Ana Serrano - Chief Digital Officer, Canadian Film Centre. Sara Thacher - Creative Lead, Walt Disney Imagineering Research and Development; previously experience designer for The Jejune Institute Barry Threw - Director of Software, Obscura Digital Fred Turner - Associate Professor of Communication, Stanford University Moderated by Jeff Burke, UCLA

                Nov 22 I had the fortunate opportunity to participate in a Meet and Greet with Sandra Oh and be audience to an interview with her about her career and her involvement in the animated feature "Window Horses" created by Ann Marie Fleming. Sandra and Ann Marie have prioritized casting diversity in telling this story, and telling the story of this multicultural young artist; I am inspired and invigorated by their doing so. Stick Girl is also the coolest and cutest.
