- Is it possible to combine traditional production methods with the development of virtual reality contents?
- What are the new forms of storytelling offered by transmedia and VR?
- How does one adapt traditional storytelling forms to VR and transmedia?
- What are the limits of immersive narration, in terms of writing and development?
