BBC R&D workshop 17 May at games academy Falmouth

BBC New Creatives - Calling the Shots


Are you aged 16-30? Are you interested in interactive art? Then come along to the Games Academy for a chance to discuss and workshop Interactive Narrative. What is it? How can we use it? What technology is available to create it, and how can we get hold of it?

This workshop is running as a part of talent development scheme New Creatives, offering commissioning opportunities for emerging artists to create new work in film, audio or interactive media, designed for BBC platforms. Please follow the link or read below to find out more about the project!

For our current open call for New Creatives, we’re particularly interested in interactive ideas that might explore interactive gaming, interactive audio experiences and FullDome experiences. At this workshop you will get a chance to see some of these technologies in action, as well as discuss the project with BBC R&D, SW Creative Technology Network, Calling the Shots and your creative peers.

2pm – 4pm Interactive Narrative Workshop with BBC R&D (Booking required)

4pm – 5pm Ideas Hang out session & Tech demos (Drop in)
