Seminar: Storytelling for Interactive Media
Saturday 5 October 2019, 10am - 4pm | Prague College, Polská 10, Prague 2
Prague College has invited an award winning (BAFTA) Interactive Producer directly from London, to hold a very practical and innovative seminar on how to Develop and Produce Interactive Media.
Open and free for all Prague College students and lecturers who RSVP by 27 September 5pm to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Interactive storytelling is a genre where the audience has some control of the narrative and how they experience the story. While this sort of storytelling is not new - and was made famous in the 1970s with the Choose Your Own Adventure book - with technological advances and investment by streaming services like Netflix in the genre, the possibilities for writers and directors to create their interactive narratives is now more possible than ever. This seminar will explore a variety of interactive storytelling projects and styles. It will also teach what you need to consider when designing and writing an interactive narrative, what assets you need to produce it, what tools are available, as well as how to budget and schedule and plan your interactive production. You will also have the opportunity to develop your own piece of interactive narrative and receive feedback.
Some elements of the course would include:
- Overview of interactive narratives.
- Creative ideation / development of concept / proposal writing / tools for creative production.
- Producing Content - iterative and agile approaches, user research, testing, user-centred / human centred design, scheduling, budgeting.
Seminar is led by:
