RAT.HUB | Start­up Pod­cast: Lin­da Rath in con­ver­sa­ti­on with Gaya­tri Parameswaran

Lin­da about Gaya­tri Parameswaran:

Today, I am joi­ned by Gaya­tri Para­mes­wa­ran. She is a jour­na­list and co-foun­der of Nowhe­re Media, an immer­si­ve sto­ry­tel­ling stu­dio that explo­res how you can achie­ve mea­ning­ful nar­ra­ti­ves through immer­si­ve expe­ri­en­ces. Her pro­jects have not only been fea­tured at fes­ti­vals such as SXSW, Sundance and Veni­ce film fes­ti­val. Her latest VR expe­ri­ence Kusun­da has actual­ly won the Tri­be­ca Sto­ry­s­capes Grand Jury pri­ze just a few weeks ago.

Gaya­tri gives a raw account of the true hust­le that is being a found­HER. Juggling one two three pro­jects simul­ta­ne­ous­ly, having to pitch ide­as to poten­ti­al inves­tors and mana­ging teams – all while kee­ping her crea­ti­ve juices flowing. She is a true war­ri­or and I applaud her resilience.

When I met Gaya­tri, we co-orga­ni­zed a VR pop up stu­dio in Ber­lin, we also co-par­ti­ci­pa­ted at a panel at the Perugia jour­na­lism fes­ti­val and she gave the key­note at one of the VR con­fe­ren­ces i co-orga­ni­zed with Fre­de­ric Dubois.
I’ve been able to explo­re her work over the years and I am hono­red that she is here with me today.
