About this event

Connected Studio MakerBox is something new from the BBC; a place for you to join an online community of like-minded creators and experiment with the latest cutting edge technology. With tools for creating interactive narratives and responsive storytelling to new ways to use Voice and AI and much more.

Experiences built with the MakerBox tools include BBC Click 1000, Instagramification, and our interactive experience for His Dark Materials; Discover Your Daemon. You can try them out for yourself on BBC Taster, the home of new ideas at the BBC, where we host experimental pilots and ideas that audiences can try, rate, and share.

In this Maker Session, taking place on Zoom, you will explore the BBC R&D built tool, StoryFormer, as well as doing a couple of creative exercises to get you thinking about how you might use these tools for your own projects.

StoryFormer is a tool for creating flexible, responsive stories. Using StoryFormer, the flow of a story and the media used to tell it can change dynamically, responding to the viewer’s input, their preferences, or their context. This can happen either before the story starts, or while it’s underway. The same story can be told differently to every viewer. Different parts of a story can be explored at will, expanded in depth, or avoided entirely.

This Maker Session is part of MIX 2021: Amplified Publishing. Developed by Bath Spa University, MIX is a four-day virtual conference that explores the intersection of writing and technology, bringing together people to make, think and talk. You can buy a ticket for the conference here.
