The End of Storytelling: The Future of Narrative in the Storyplex (Paperback)
Creators of immersive experiences in virtual reality, augmented reality, and mixed reality have relied heavily on familiar storytelling techniques used in books, theatre, and film -- often with confusing and unengaging results.
Stephanie Riggs argues in The End of Storytelling that in order to develop powerful stories in these emerging mediums, we need nothing short of a paradigm shift in how we approach and conceptualize immersive narratives. Beautifully designed and explosively written, this book will help you better understand how to approach the exciting medium and get your next immersive project off the ground by explaining:
- Why storytelling doesn't work
- The fundamental narrative building blocks that do work
- How to think immersively
- A blueprint for developing your next immersive project
The End of Storytelling is informed by over two decades of work in both immersive and classical mediums, and is rich with examples, inspiration, and challenges for anyone interested in, or currently developing, effective immersive experiences. Its symphonic exploration presents fascinating context of our relationship to storytelling, and a practical model for building the future of narrative.
