As the lines between filmmaking and game development continue to blur, it’s time for screenwriters to turn eyes towards a new medium.
WHY SHOULD YOU ATTEND?
Are you a writer who craves exploring different mediums? Maybe you spend as much time playing video games as you do watching films? Or perhaps you’ve been searching for a new medium to stoke the flames of creativity. This could be the place for you. You’ll learn why video games are the bold new frontier for storytelling. Working creators within the industry will also share their stories, advice on entering the space and leveraging techniques from other storytelling mediums to find success in gaming.
GAME WRITING TRACK:
This programming was born out of our dedication to the Festival’s mission. As the lines between filmmaking and game development continue to blur, it’s time for screenwriters to turn eyes towards a new medium. Now, we’re beyond excited to take our exploration of narrative storytelling within games to the next level, as the industry itself rapidly evolves into the next phase of interactive storytelling.
There are stories which can only be created in video games. We’re excited to bring some of the leaders in narrative development within the industry to demystify exactly how video game narratives are made, and exactly what it means to be a storyteller within the space. We will also explore how screenwriting for both film and television have shaped the current state of the medium, and how they will cyclically inform each other, and re-imagine how we tell and share stories.
