Roundtable with Keith Myers @ AVimmerse | Can the Metaverse be Defined?
Keith Myers is Creative Director of AVimmerse.
After years spent creating quality 360 audio-visual content for a number of high-profile clients, the founder, Keith Myers, sought a new challenge - to master the art of experiential storytelling. To create truly immersive worlds in which users didn’t just control the narrative, but could also explore and engage in a whole new way.
During this episode, Ben is joined by co-host Jacob Ovendale and Keith to discuss the Metaverse; where we are now, the future, and how the Metaverse can be defined.
