90x90 Los Angeles:Interactive Storytelling / Narrative in Games
Despite being unaffiliated with the annual SIGGRAPH conference, 90x90LA's calendar offers up an event date that seems to be aligned perfectly with the end of graphics conference in Los Angeles. The 90x90LA series will host an event that focuses on how writers and designers create new spaces in both interactive and immersive gaming.
#90X90LA will run from July 5-October 1, 2017. The 90 events will be spread out between three historic Los Angeles neighborhoods: Little Tokyo, DTLA, and South Central LA. CIELO Galleries/Studios will host nearly half of the events. There will also be occasional and carefully selected events in other places around the city (such as a collaboration with Grand Performances on 7/30) and also satellite/joint events arranged with artists and organizers in other cities around the country (we have people in Portland, NYC, and Atlanta who have expressed interest).
This week, Los Angeles hosts SIGGRAPH (http://s2017.siggraph.org/) the world's largest, most influential annual conference and exhibition in computer graphics and interactive techniques: Five days of research results, demos, educational sessions, art, screenings, and hands-on interactivity featuring the community's latest technical achievements, and three days of commercial exhibits displaying the industry's current hardware, software, and services.
The technologies continue to push the limits of what's available to the audience. With all of the new VR and AR developments showcased at this week's conference, the next discussion to have is about how narrative stories can be developed to take advantage of that.
Location: Far East Lounge, 353 East 1st St., LA
