The beginning of your immersive story...
StoryFutures Academy Introductory Labs provide a safe space for people to experience first-hand how immersive technologies are already being deployed to tell compelling stories, and start to dream up new ideas of their own. These sessions are intended to provide a forum for discussion and debate about immersive storytelling, develop new thinking and grow a community of practice.
Introductory Labs are aimed at creative professionals from adjacent fields (for example: producers, writers, directors, or commissioners from film, TV, games and other creative industries) who are new to immersive and wish to learn more about the potential of the medium, and the current state of this emerging industry.
Participants at these one-day labs will:
- Experience and discuss a range of the latest virtual and augmented reality content
- Participate in introductory sessions on the technology enabling this content, and the business and distribution models that are being explored
- Discuss current industry trends and challenges
Labs are held for small groups of between 12 and 15 participants, and are allocated on first come, first serve with subject to the eligibility criteria. These Labs are free and we receive a high volume of applications, therefore there is no guarantee on receiving a place and we will not be able to provide application feedback.
The Lab applications will be closed once spaces are full. If you are still interested in attending on a specific date and would like to be added to the waiting list, please complete an expression of interest application and make note of your date of interest.
We hold our Introductory Labs on a regular basis at the National Film and Television School and Royal Holloway, University of London. Please express your interest via the online submission form to be the first to know when new dates are announced.
In light of the growing concerns around Coronavirus (COVID-19), StoryFutures Academy has made the decision to postpone all upcoming scheduled events.
Thank you for your understanding, we will continue to provide updates and monitor the situation in the coming weeks.
