Working Multi Platform Workshop
Duration: 1 day
There are millions of ideas and stories that could make potential TV or radio shows, films or interactive projects – so, how can you make yours stand out?
Drawing on video examples from factual and fictional production, this is a highly practical session where you will try out stories on other people, and build them collaboratively. It will reflect the multiplatform worlds of audience participation and cross-trailing, but focus rigorously on story-telling and audience engagement.
