Course Description

New Ways of Telling Stories (Certificate)

This course will introduce you to new technologies and ways of telling stories. Using a variety of technologies such as motion-capture, AR and VR you will have an opportunity to experiment and learn about the possibilities for creating different kinds of narrative. You can be a complete novice or already have some experience with these technologies; all you need is an interest in experimenting and learning.

You will learn about the variety and scope of innovative or emerging digital audio-visual practices in contemporary culture, such as online media forms and genres, games, VR, AR, motion capture, multiplatform storytelling, or interactive media.

You will also research, propose and develop your own self-directed project in an area of digital audio-visual practice.

The course will allow you to identify and devise an appropriate strategy, and a work schedule for bringing your project to a realisation stage using digital media techniques.

You will be assessed on your project management, research and skills related to your own project. There are no written examinations in this course.
