The visual appeal of the movie “Avatar” has taken away the breath of just about everyone who has seen the film. The movie is an ultimate example of a graphic novel brought to life.

Please join us as our panelists discuss which implications “Avatar” will have as virtual worlds continue to gain traction and what future avatars may gain from the stunning futuristic vision James Cameron has offered up… Inside The Avatar Studio.

This event will be filmed live by Stuart Warf of Rezzed TV.

Facilitated by Phelan Corrimal/Kevin Feenan - Dean of Rockcliffe University
