StoryFutures Academy and NFTS Scotland: Introductory Immersive Lab Online

Short course


Delivered in the NFTS Scotland Virtual Classroom, accessed via Zoom.  

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
