Win a Pass to IFP’s Class Series “The Where of Storytelling: Creating the Location Based Experience”
“The Where of Storytelling: Creating the Location Based Experience” is a class series conceived by the Made in NY Media Center by IFP exploring site-specific storytelling – from interactive film to experiential design for commercial clients, location adds a new level of experience to media projects. The program consists of a Case Study and overview of locative storytelling featuring interactive filmmaker Lance Weiler and Jake Barton, founder of award-winning museum experience designers Local Projects (June 9); a Writing Workshop: draft a location-based story & refine your project through inspiring design exercises and peer critiques (June 13, 14 & 27); and a Beacon Tech Workshop: install a location-specific experience & work with developers to learn to use beacon technology, led by Aaryn Anderson of Vectorform, a leading multiplatform interactive design company (July 11-12 & 25-26).
Advances in technology have expanded the possibilities of locative storytelling, from geo-located audio to beacons, augmented reality & mobile – the possibilities are limited only by your imagination. Join us in any (or all three!) of these workshops and experiment in this new genre. Save with Early Bird ticket prices now, and greater discounts for taking part in both workshops.
We are going to give away one free pass to the entire program to a filmmaker/media maker who wants to expand their project into a location-based story, or create something new. Filmmakers interested in participating should submit a short treatment describing the content of their project, as well as how it having a location based element using beacon technology will enhance it and key crew bios. Pitches should be not longer than 2 pages, a PDF, and should be emailed directly to Rose Vincelli Gustine, Senior Programs Producer, Made in NY Media Center by IFP (firstname.lastname@example.org) by June 4th. Winning pitch will gain free access to all three elements of the series for one person, including an installation of their location-based project in the Made in NY Media Center by IFP.
