"This sequence is all about sound." So began the introduction to the "Dad's Den" sequence in the Emmy award-winning narrative VR feature, Wolves in The Walls. This talk provides an in-depth exploration on how the Facebook Sound+Design team translated high-level direction into concrete steps for prototyping, composition, sound design and asset implementation for one of the show's most iconic scenes.

The discussion of translating high-level creative concepts into practical steps for ideation, prototyping, production & implementation will offer insight into unique challenges and opportunities available in VR storytelling.
