As the boundaries between moviemaking and video games dissolve, the skills of Interactive Storytelling now play a crucial role. This two-week intensive provides an exciting introduction
into this new world that combines storytelling for video games and movies. Students write an interactive script, shoot and edit using their mobile device and then publish the final piece. With Interactive Storytelling, students develop multiple non-linear story paths and create interactive hyperlinks that allow the viewer to choose the story they want to follow. . The program culminates with an online screening for students, friends, and families. The course is taught by Felipe Cardona, television producer, university professor (including SFI) and creator of digital media managed by students from the web and mobile devices. Please note that the class runs 10:00AM-2:00pm Pacific Time. The first two hours of the day focus on instruction and the next two hours provide time for collaborative work sessions with instructor support. Students must have access to a smartphone or tablet and have the ability to purchase up to $35 worth of mobile applications for their device. Students may also want to utilize a personal computer system for downloading their videos and editing or can choose to work completely with their mobile device. College credit is available for this course.
