Transmedia, digital storytelling, multi-platform, non-linear, interactive media. Whatever term you want to use, it’s clear that stories are getting a shake-up. I’ll be banging my drum on the topic at a panel this coming Friday at the Sydney Film Festival Hub.
Interactive Storytelling: The Shape of Things to Come will cover trends in the field and how Australian storytellers and producers are responding, and attendees will also get a look at some of the great work being produced. Screen Australia CEO Ruth Harley will also be announcing the recipients of their Digital Ignition fund on the night.
The panel will be chaired by Mike Jones, AFTRS screen studies lecturer and Head of Story at Portal Entertainment, and the other panelists are Justin Wight (Double Happy vs. The Infinite Sadness), Nick Doherty of SBS, producer Anna Grieve (Big Stories, Small Towns) and Mike Cowap of Screen Australia.
Kick off is at 7pm, Friday 15th June at the SFF Hub under Town Hall - hope to see you there!
