BRAND NEW for AUTUMN 2010 ….. TRANSMEDIA TRAINING
Surely the only area of the media that’s currently growing? The opportunities for creative writers, directors and producers to make ‘cross-platform entertainment’ seem to be limitless. For filmmakers used to working with traditional formats this can be a daunting arena so Scriptfactory have formed a new partnership with Hide&Seek, a studio of game designers and event organisers, to launch two brand new workshops this Autumn:
INTRODUCTION TO TRANSMEDIA
A day for directors, producers and other film industry professionals looking to understand the increasing opportunities for screen storytelling in a networked world, ranging from on-line game creation to making fictitious facebook pages for your movie characters. Includes how to assess and devise transmedia opportunities for your film; how to find partners; and how to build and deploy transmedia content.

STORIES WITHOUT BORDERS: A practical workshop for writers
Using a series of in-depth case studies to explore how stories can be successfully seeded across different media, giving writers tools to tackle these arenas and a chance to test them out in an exploratory and supportive environment. Perfect for those experienced at writing, but new to writing across platforms.
