From our press release --
"Ushering in the next era of entertainment, The VR Report introduces a unique new talk show format featuring an immersive 360-degree virtual reality experience. For the first time, viewers have the opportunity to sit down face-to-face in a virtual reality environment with a variety of luminaries and pioneers in the rapidly growing VR industry. Hosted on Milk VR, Samsung’s content portal dedicated to 360-degree video content, viewers can watch the show using the Samsung Gear VR and compatible Samsung mobile device. The series debuted the first three episodes on October 6, 2015, with subsequent episodes scheduled to release in the following weeks.
The show is a stereoscopic experience where the viewer is positioned in a seat at a table with the show’s host David Oh, a video game veteran and current head developer relations at Leap Motion. Other key members of The VR Report team include Lex Halaby, an experienced director in the VR space with projects for Universal, ABC Digital, Tesla Motors, and Funny or Die; and Kevin Ping Chang, a feature film and television producer currently focused on creating narrative driven live-action and interactive VR experiences.
“The VR Report is a spontaneous open forum catered towards the VR community,” said show host David Oh. “There’s no cue cards or FAQ lists, just open and honest conversations with a generation of pioneers who want to share their vision for the future of virtual reality and what inspires them.”
The guests featured on The VR Report represent a wide spectrum of functions within the VR community, including Tony Parisi (Futurist and Creator of VRML & X3D), Ben Lang (Co-founder & Executive Editor of Road To VR), Cosmo Scharf and Jonnie Ross (Founders of VRLA, Founders of Visionary VR and Founders of Proto Awards), and Patrick Hackett (Co-creator of Tilt Brush and VR Designer at Google)."
