Chief Storyteller Story Up Studios VR
Introduction
Sarah Hill, is the mother of two teenagers, three if you count her husband. An alum of the Missouri School of Journalism, she's a National Edward R. Murrow and 12 time Mid-America Emmy award-winning Storyteller. Whether it's 360 Storytelling or hands-free live-streaming with Google Glass, Virtual and Augmented Realities are two mediums in which Sarah likes to create. Her company Story Up VR marries technology with advocacy Journalism. A former interactive news anchor, her team at KOMU-TV pioneered the use of multi-way video chat during a newscast. Through that experience, Sarah learned the value of Human Media and eye contact online. As Chief Storyteller at Veterans United Foundation, she told stories about Veterans and military families and used Human Media to give a voice to military charities. Currently, Sarah is working with the Virtual Reality (VR) industry on Honor Everywhere 360, an immersive experience for Veterans not able to physically travel to see their memorials. Sarah has covered the aftermath of the 2004 Tsunami in Sri Lanka and Indonesia and produced documentaries in Vietnam and Guatemala on the world's mobility problem. She likes running, Cheerios, and practical jokes. Do NOT eat her powdered donuts.
