Following the highly successful "Back to the Titanic" event earlier this month, we are delighted to announce that award-winning filmmaker and leading immersive storyteller, Anthony Geffen, will be giving an additional online lecture, followed by a live Q&A. Immersive storytelling is quickly becoming one of the most important new media moving forward, covering all sectors of the economy. There has been an enormous surge in popularity during the Coronavirus pandemic. Anthony will talk you through a virtual reality experience inside Stephen Hawking’s mind, an augmented reality experience with David Attenborough bringing prehistoric animals to your living room, an experience that will take you from the International space station back to earth. He will be talking about how doctors are using it to help mental disorders where he thinks this extraordinary method of storytelling will take us in the next few years.

Anthony is the CEO and creative director at the multi-Emmy and BAFTA award winning production company Atlantic Productions, he teaches the first immersive storytelling course in the world at NYU Campuses and is a fellow of St Cross College, Oxford.
