SXSW 2024

The Unreal Future of Reality Television


Will reality TV be where gaming and TV finally collide? What will that collision create - new cross-platform formats of highly engaging and truly gamified entertainment, or a hot mess of one-season avatar lip-syncing shows? Beyond virtual production, how can television productions powered by game-engines reimagine the next generation of reality television . This session will talk about bringing the best of gaming and e-sports creative and tech into reality TV - to reignite old formats and birth something entirely new.
