Do you have a story you want to create using digital platforms?
A practical digital workshop where Maya Chowdhry will introduce transmedia* storytelling and outline some simple tools and techniques that can be used to create a transmedia piece.
You will then make a simple digital storyboard, choose a selection of platforms, e.g. Instagram, audio, poster, and create a prototype transmedia piece.
Come to the workshop with an idea of a story you want to tell across multiple platforms real and digital. The story can be fiction, fact or faction.
