The title of this series, “The Video Essay As Art,” isn’t meant to be facetious. I think that there really is room for artistry in the field of video essays.

Virtual and augmented reality are making quite a comeback. Indeed, VR made an impression in the 1990s, perhaps even in spite of its role in the creepy science-fiction/horror film Lawnmower Man.

Adobe announced their latest series of updates at NAB 2016.
