The VR-Fueled Future of Cinema // Wired
Director Jon Favreau and his crew shot Disney's new Lion King as one would any conventional film: with dollies, cranes, lights, and cameras. It’s just that these tools were nowhere to be found on set, because The Lion King was filmed almost entirely in virtual reality. What Favreau has cooked up for The Lion King transforms VR from a handy filmmaking accessory into a high-powered, improvisational medium in itself—a stirring reminder that VR is changing the world in ways you don’t need a headset to see.
ESPN Launches E-Sports Series 
// Engadget

ESPN certainly isn't new to hosting e-sports tourneys at its events, but its new EXP series represents an added level of commitment: the company wants to make digital competition a staple at its sports galas, not just special exhibitions.
Secret Power: Immersive Experience Transforms Cinema
// The Red Bulletin

Fabien Riggall, founder of Secret Cinema and longtime FoST community member, discusses the art of immersive world-building. The key, it turns out, is finding ways to blur the line between performers and audience members. 
The Dark Forest Theory of the Internet // OneZero
In its early days, the Internet was a haven of free expression and open discourse, its users protected by relative anonymity and separation from the physical world. Today, however, the net has become the world's largest stage. With reputations on the line and culture shifting quicker than ever before, many people are sidestepping the limelight and retreating to the less public corners of the web: newsletters, podcasts, private forums. This "Dark Forest" is diminishing the "online persona."

Meet DigiDoug: A Live-Rendered Digital Human // TED
In an astonishing talk and tech demo, software researcher Doug Roble debuts "DigiDoug": a real-time, 3-D, digital rendering of his likeness that's accurate down to the scale of pores and wrinkles. Powered by an inertial motion capture suit, deep neural networks, and enormous amounts of data, DigiDoug renders the real Doug's emotions (and even how his blood flows and eyelashes move) in striking detail. Learn more about how this exciting tech was built—and its applications in movies, virtual assistants, and beyond.
// COMMUNITY SPOTLIGHT: LIZZIE STARK
 
New feature alert! From now on, each month we'll be posting a Q&A with a different member of the FoST community. This month we spoke to Lizzie Stark, a participation designer and author who's pushing the boundaries of what it means to participate in theater. Her new interactive theater pop-up, The Night Café, premieres in Boston on July 19th.
