Screen Nsw's Courtney Gibson on her bid to make Nsw ground zero for Vr

5 June 2016 9:37 PM, PDT | IF.com.au | See recent IF.com.au news »

Screen Nsw CEO Courtney Gibson.

Screen Nsw is getting into virtual reality in a big way, with a new app unveiled last week and a Vr intensive taking place tomorrow, June 7, at Sydney's Carriageworks.

Vr seems to be everywhere - the Sydney Film Festival has programmed its first Vr sidebar in 2016, and Vivid Sydney is currently hosting a Björk Vr exhibition (also at Carriageworks).

For CEO Courtney Gibson, Screen Nsw's 360° Vision app is about spearheading audience as well as industry development.

"The suppliers of both viewing equipment and production equipment [for Vr] are now moving out into the marketplace", Gibson told If..

"That means it's time for us to equip the production sector. But creating the app is as much about developing audiences as it is about developing practitioners."

The agency's push into Vr is about "positioning Nsw as a hub for virtual reality", Gibson said.

6 April 2016 7:00 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Spoiler Alert: Do not read ahead, if you have not watched the April 6 episode of “Empire.”

TV deaths are always a sore subject for fans, but lately, a slew of characters being killed off have struck an especially emotional chord — because the grim reaper has visited many fan-favorite characters who happen to be lesbians.

“The 100” faced much backlash from passionate viewers of the CW show who were enraged when a key character was killed off, just after she consummated her relationship with her female lover. AMC’s “The Walking Dead” also killed off a lesbian, as did Syfy’s “The Magicians,” “The Expanse,” CBS medical drama “Code Black” and CW’s “Jane the Virgin.”

Tonight, Fox’s “Empire” killed off a lesbian couple, played by Naomi Campbell and Marisa Tomei.

Though the pattern of television deaths has become a recent trend, “Empire” showrunner Ilene Chaiken — who co-created Showtime’s “The L Word »
