Session information and dates
Writing and coding interactive fiction: videogame narratives are getting more and more complex and immersive, so how exactly do they differ from books and films in terms of their structure and storytelling? In this videoconference we delve into 'branching' narratives and the essential elements students can master to write good (and good looking) interactive fiction. Students can start to familiarise themselves with the free, online program Twine before the session if they wish, but will learn about its capacity for writing interactive fiction in this videoconference.
Who can join: recommend for Years 5 to 10.
360 and VR project creation: It’s the new frontier of filmmaking and digital media, but how do you actually get a VR or 360 project off the ground?
