Interactive Film Workshop with Wales Interactive and S4C

S4C is pleased to announce that we are holding a writing workshop for interactive films for drama writers in partnership with Wales Interactive. This is a fantastic opportunity for up to 15 new and experienced writers to understand this new medium and have the opportunity to develop ideas.

The workshop will be held at the Wales Interactive studio in Penarth. Dai Banner, head of Wales Interactive, will present WI's work to date, which include interactive drama or Full Motion Video (FMVs) that can be 'played' on console platforms, PCs and mobile devices. A linear narrative path can also be chosen to create a linear film. You will also have the opportunity to see the unique scripting software that WI has developed which facilitates the writing (and playing) of a story with multiple narrative choices and threads. Examples of WI's interactive films can be found here: https://www.walesinteractive.com/games-film. The session with Dai will be held in English.

In order to apply, you will need to provide a letter (*up to 500 words) explaining why you wish to attend, and a CV including details of any previous script writing and training. You must also confirm in your application that you are available on the day the session is held (see below).

If you have any queries, please do not hesitate to contact lois.thomas@s4c.wales.

There is no charge for these workshops, and travel costs of up to £100 per person can be claimed if you are a freelancer, student, or not in work.
