In her keynote address, Frozen: The Art of 3D Storytelling, Katie will share with IMMERSION 2014 attendees the ways in which Disney uses 3D technology to create unique and deeply compelling immersive experiences. Frozen is a sweeping epic tale, filled with magical ice and swirling snow. For the film Katie and her team utilized stereo 3D and depth to enhance the story and emotionally engage viewers in a way that is not possible with traditional movies.
Drawing on her work on Frozen, Katie will explain how stereo 3D is used as a storytelling tool today what we expect to see and experience in future Disney films. Her keynote will also address the importance of stereo 3D as a business tool, and how this relatively new technology is already impacting the world around us.
Recently awarded with "Best Stereographer"
"3D Storytelling is a way for the audience to connect with a character, to feel their emotions and be a part of their journey. The use of stereo on a Disney film is relatively new and still evolving. Yet, Disney is on the forefront of technology and an industry leader with their 3D techniques. Here at Walt Disney Animation Studios we use 3D in a way that allows the audience to feel immersed within the emotional arcs of the film. During my IMMERSION 2014 keynote address I will focus on what our stereo process is and how we use 3D as a storytelling tool and also what to expect in our future films. I will also talk about why stereo is important from a business stand point, and how stereo is impacting the world around us." -- Katie Fico, Walt Disney Animation Studios

Building on the success of the previous 8 years of Immersive Education (iED) conferences, the world's leading experts in immersion convene June 6-8 in Los Angeles California for IMMERSION 2014. Hosted by The Getty (J. Paul Getty Museum) and Loyola Marymount University (LMU) in collaboration with the Smithsonian Institution and the Western USA Chapter of the Immersive Education Initiative (iED West), IMMERSION 2014 is open to the global academic and business communities, the general public, and experts in immersion and immersive technologies.
Immersive Education : iED 2012 BostonIMMERSION 2014 #i2014 addresses the personal and cultural impact of digital technologies such as wearable computing (e.g., Google Glass and Samsung Gear), virtual reality (VR), augmented reality (AR), mixed reality (MXR), mechanical and neural interfaces, affective computing (systems that can recognize, interpret, process, and simulate human feelings and emotions), neuro-gaming technologies (that are used to create adaptive and radically compelling game experiences)
Immersive Education (iED) Summits are official Immersive Education Initiative conferences organized for educators, researchers, administrators, business leaders and the general public. iED Summits consist of presentations, panel discussions, break-out sessions, demos and workshops that provide attendees with an in-depth overview of immersion and the technologies that enable immersion. iED Summits feature new and emerging virtual worlds, game-based learning and training systems, simulations, mixed/augmented reality, fully immersive environments, immersive learning and training platforms, cutting-edge research from around the world, and related tools, techniques, technologies, standards and best practices.
Speakers at iED Summits have included faculty, researchers, staff, administrators and professionals from Boston College, Harvard University (Harvard Graduate School of Education, Berkman Center for Internet and Society at Harvard Law School, and Harvard Kennedy School of Government), Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), MIT Media Lab, The Smithsonian Institution, UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization)
