Reframed Workshop – The Art of Immersive Audio
Fri 28 April 2017, 13:30 – 16:30 BST
Lighthouse and Creative England present Reframed, a new programme of talks and workshops exploring immersive and interactive storytelling.
The worlds of film, gaming, theatre, design, art and technology are becoming increasingly converged, with interactive and immersive environments such as 360°, virtual reality, augmented reality and games bringing us closer to a seamless blending of physical and virtual worlds.
“Immersive storytelling is everywhere and there’s no going back” – The Guardian
Reframed brings together leaders and innovators from the fields of film, games, sound, contemporary arts and media who have created bold and inventive work across VR, augmented reality, immersive theatre and games to explore emerging practices within the realm of immersive and interactive storytelling.
Aimed at those wanting to learn more about designing and producing interactive and/or immersive work, Reframed will shine a light on the intrinsic and underlying principles of non-linear and interactive narratives, and the platforms and technologies which best serve them across different types of projects.
