"VR must be the medium to awaken the inter-connected consciousness and freedom of the emerging Global Human. If not, it could be the ultimate medium of Global Control." Brett Leonard

Futurist and filmmaker Brett Leonard introduced technologies such as virtual reality and nanotechnology to the world before they became a mainstream reality in his films Virtuosity and The Lawnmower Man. In Variety's 'Digital 25' Leonard was recognized as one of the twenty five leading visionaries, innovators and producers who have made significant contributions to the advancement of storytelling through digital media. Now Leonard is developing interactive narratives at Virtuosity Entertainment with a dream team from ILM and Disney.

At ARTandVR, Leonard will discuss his '5 Rules of VR' and share methods to avoid a dystopian future.
