“We’ve taken part in PiXii since the very beginning because we wanted to showcase our knowledge and expertise in producing new narrative experiences, in particularly using 3D sound, to enhance the visitors’ experience in heritage sites. It’s a real bonus to meet both the general public and potential partners for new collaborations.”
“Having key VR players all under one roof allowed me to test out other experiences and network with many industry professionals. We were also able to chat with producers as well as museum representatives directly on our booth which was a major advantage. Sunny Side of the Doc really is a melting pot of curious minds, mixing documentary film with new technology. It’s a unique occasion to create new opportunities together.”
“It’s the ideal opportunity for getting noticed amongst those in the industry, and enter the digital culture community. We met so many collaborators – not only from France, but from abraod too. It’s the start of several collaborations which lead to new meetings. Obviously, we’re planning on coming back in 2019.”
