Friends Who Are Going
Event description

Description

Are you a gamer who loves great stories? Do you want to shape the stories of future games?

Join Vancouver Film School’s, Head of Writing for Film, Television + Video Games, Michael Baser, for an insightful and engaging workshop that will introduce participants to the essential and fundamental building blocks of storytelling… character development, story, structure and dialogue.

As the game industry moves away from cinematics in games, much of the experience happens while players are in control. This workshop will analyze how Environmental Storytelling works in conjunction with narrative fundamentals to create a more meaningful player experience.

The hands-on portion of the workshop will focus on adapting these interactive techniques to the classic designs of a traditional narrative. Students will break into small groups to translate and adapt a classic film narrative into a game experience. At the end, students will pitch the newly crafted story for work-shopping and feedback.

A New Chapter to Be Written at VFS

Discover how you could be among the first to join a select group of storytellers at the Vancouver Film School’s new Writing for Video Games stream in the Writing for Film, Television and Video Games program. This first-of-its-kind, one-year intensive program will prepare you for the exciting life of a narrative writer in the exploding video games industry.
