Keynote and Panel: Children, Film and Immersive Worlds
Immersive worlds (early elements of a future ‘metaverse’) hold a huge attraction to Gen Z and Gen Alpha. Find out how filmmakers and distributors use the social game and experience platforms like Roblox, Fortnite, Zepeto, and Minecraft to engage with the 8+ audience through stories and their favourite characters.
David Kleeman, SVP of Global Trends for games studio and research consultancy Dubit, will open the session with a short roadmap to the ‘proto-immersive’ worlds. He’ll address how they can be helpful at any stage of the creative process – from development to deepening fandom – using case studies from Dubit’s work with content creators and brands.
Next, David will hold a conversation with creators and brand builders about their experiences and advice when it comes to emerging immersive platforms.
Time: 14:45 - 16:10
