Jessica Lauretti is Head of RYOT Studio, Oath's award winning global content studio and creative agency.
From the beginning, RYOT has set out on a mission to use technology and storytelling to connect people to the causes, issues and stories they are passionate about and to let them not just be a passive consumer of that content but to become an active participant. From citizen journalism to virtual reality and augmented reality, the immersive storytelling leader focuses on stories of resilience and triumph of humanity through their Academy, Emmy, Peabody and Cannes Lion nominated work.
RYOT has taken viewers to Haiti’s largest slum, inside the fight to save elephants in Kenya, behind the music with an Inuit heavy metal band on Baffin Island, and along for a ride with a man who quit his job to bike across the world. Jessica will talk about the current landscape in VR and AR as well as her early learnings of how to make engaging and impactful immersive content.
