Short course


Delivered online through video conferencing

Calling creative professionals based in Scotland, apply now to attend an online Introductory Immersive Lab in partnership with NFTS Scotland on 3rd September 2020

StoryFutures Academy Introductory Labs provide a safe space for people to experience first-hand how immersive technologies are already being deployed to tell compelling stories, and start to dream up new ideas of their own. These sessions are intended to provide a forum for discussion and debate about immersive storytelling, develop new thinking and grow a community of practice.

Introductory Labs are aimed at creative professionals from adjacent fields (for example: producers, writers, directors, or commissioners from film, TV, games and other creative industries) who are new to immersive and wish to learn more about the potential of the medium, and the current state of this emerging industry.

Due to COVID-19 restrictions we are currently offering online sessions using virtual conferencing. Participants at these half-day labs will:

  • Experience and discuss a range of virtual and augmented reality content online (no headset required)
  • Participate in introductory sessions on the technology enabling this content, and the business and distribution models that are being explored
  • Discuss current industry trends and challenges


Fees and funding options

Fees for this course are as follows:

Labs are free of charge
