Under the title “One IP to rule them all – How the Multiverse is becoming the new meta” we explored similarities and differences between the film and games industries in terms of storytelling. What are the levers that need to be turned to successfully transition an IP from one medium to the other? How will we see IPs in the future as works from the film and gaming worlds merge into one metaverse? What can the industries learn from each other and how can they collaborate across disciplines apart from using the same software? What is the significance of the Berlin-Brandenburg region and is the capital ready to join in as a global player?

Following the panel, LVL invited you to try out its various arcades and VR experiences as well as cool drinks and an exquisite buffet.
