Storytelling in VR/AR and Shaping of the New Ethics
Journalism
(Bachelor’s programme)
2018
Ever since first humans adapted complex patterns of sound to serve as conduits to transference of information, the aggressive mediatisation of advancements of technical progress led media outlets to appearing on the forefront of adaptation of emerging audiovisual technologies. This phenomenon naturally led to adaptation of virtual and augmented reality technologies by contemporary media outlets as a substitute for outdated textual and audiovisual formats, with a promise to reinvent the way humanity receives truthful, non-falsifiable information. This study aims to disprove this claim by addressing and analysing the established rules of audiovisual storytelling, limitations and particularities of virtual and augmented reality technologies, as well as discussing the subject of evolution of ethics in audiovisual journalism and the erroneous shift in liability of media outlets, distributing audiovisual content in the form of virtual/augmented reality products.
