The Anagram team often give talks at conferences around the world and teach workshops to both professionals and people new to the craft of interactive storytelling.
We love to share what we have learnt and delve deeply into the iterative process of making experiential stories. We do this by giving talks and by designing and teaching workshops.
From giving the closing talk at the 2015 Interactive Conference of the DocLab at IDFA, to hosting a day’s symposium in the Alternate Realities section of Sheffield DocFest, to a back room workshop on storytelling at the Interactive Telecommunications Programme at the Tisch School of the Arts in New York. Recent trips to give talks at major festivals include New Zealand for Miramar Creative’s conference on Creative Futures and Warsaw for the Digital Cultures Conference 2019.
We have substantial experience in devising all kinds of teaching sessions — from 2 day fully intensive workshops where we make small projects, to 1 hour sessions on interactive storytelling. Our students have included people doing MAs in VR to professionals in the TV and film industry. Having worked in documentary for many years before starting Anagram, we have a nuanced understanding of how to apply knowledge learned in the TV and film industries to the new terrain of immersive and interactive storytelling.
We can teach across a broad spectrum of subjects — from immersive narrative design to using Unity in a creative collaborative way to how the histories of documentary and interactive media have intertwined. We have a particular specialism in creative processes for immersive and interactive projects - if you are struggling to get the best out of your team in this new medium, talk to us.
Please get in touch if you are interested and want to book a session or talk.
