The course

This programme focusses on immersive technologies and developing your creative storytelling practice. You will develop an entrepreneurial and critical understanding of the creative industries and the place of immersive technologies within these.

You will look at a variety of storytelling techniques and processes for immersive projects and consider the traditions of relevant screen media, including film, television and video games. You will examine the emerging UK immersive economy within the global context, and become familiar with the research and development and business model challenges in the sector, key institutions, and working practices.

You will develop a broad understanding of the group nature of immersive experience creation and how the roles played by the various parties, such as engineer, producer, writer, performer, subject and director shape and influence the screenplay.

You will learn how to undertake routine and adaptive work in hardware and software that responds to demands of sound, vision and perception in creative contexts, and how to write, pitch and present ideas in a range of formats. You will develop proof of concept, prototype, pilot and short form immersive experiences and recognise the potential for re-imagining existing story forms, structures and intellectual property.
