Arta - Merchant City / Thursday 23 February 18:30-20:30
Don’t get us wrong, Glasgow Film Festival loves films but sometimes a story just won’t fit onto a cinema screen.
Sometimes a story needs to be explored, manipulated and interacted with so we’ve teamed up with Digital Media Meetup for an evening of talks, drinks and chat about the world of storytelling away from the cinema screen.
The internet, smartphones, VR, videogames and ARG’s have forever disrupted the idea of what a story can be. Narratives are being crafted with new technology and audience behaviours in mind from the augmented world of Pokemon Go to the immersive ones built for Oculus Rift. This event is a great opportunity to hear from people at the spearhead of new storytelling technology and a chance to meet others working in digital fields.
Digital Media Meet Up is a monthly meet-up for anyone interested in blogging, vlogging, podcasting, social media and any other form of digital media production and publishing. Each month has guest speakers and plenty of networking opportunities. Digital Media Meetup recently ran Techaus, a special festival celebrating ideas, innovation and creativity showcasing the best in Scottish talent while aiming to inspire and challenge the next wave of digital champions.
Speakers will be announced in the coming weeks.
Digital Media Meetup: Storytelling is delivered in partnership with Digital Media Meetup.
This is an open event, no pass required.
