Event description

Description

BBC R&D have been developing technology which allows stories to be adapted, a bit like a storyteller around a campfire.

Imagine

  • A podcast which fits with your morning commute
  • Audio that challenges the listener based on their music tastes
  • Video which avoids inappropriate content depending on the age of the audience
  • Video which adapts depending on who is watching, and where they are

We call this Object-Based media, and it is a true synergy of the internet, storytelling, and media.

Understanding Object media

BBC R&D's senior firestarter Ian Forrester will introduce the endless possibilities for producers, artists, and creators; the R&D team are excited by the potential for this new tool and want to offer it freely to everyone, using open technology.

Schedule

  • 1400 - 1445: Adaptive talk with open questions & answers
  • 1445 - 1500: Coffee Break
  • 1500 - 1700: Paper workshop with BBC R&D (Please note tickets are limited for the workshop)

Paper workshop

In the paper workshop, you will…

  • Get familiar with object based media
  • See examples of the content created, and gain insight into how we created it
  • Think about the benefits for your practice
  • Join a storytelling workshop building with objects
  • Learn about opportunities to use it now and into the future
  • Help to shape the future of media with us

This is a chance to leap forward and rethink how media can work

The Next Web covered object based media a while ago - https://thenextweb.com/media/2016/03/09/bbc-r-and-d-object-based-media/

This workshop is one of a series of Object Based Media community events, more can be found linked here - http://www.bbc.co.uk/rd/blog/2017/05/object-based-media-events
