She is keen to explore the potential of immersive storytelling, and has created a cinematic virtual reality experience about love, grief and reconciliation between a human trafficking survivor and her father, that offers an empathetic, sensory exploration of the female experience.
Patel will be speaking about how she made the film, why the 360-degree space was the right medium to tell the story, and the things she learned in the production of this immersive experience.
The next newsrewired digital journalism conference takes place on 22 November at Reuters in London, followed by a day of training on 23 November.
We have now sold out of single day passes to newsrewired, but we still have a few 2-day tickets left, including access to the conference on 22 November and one training course on 23 November.
This will be our 20th conference, and as usual, we’re aiming to provide delegates with practical skills and ideas they can take home and explore in their own organisations.
Speakers from Reuters, WikiTribune, Quartz, BuzzFeed, The Wall Street Journal, the Guardian, Swedish Radio, Bloomberg and more will join us on stage on 22 November to discuss the latest trends and techniques in digital newsgathering and storytelling.
