Course Outline:

Increasingly businesses need to utilise all facets of media to reach their audience. New immersive technology like virtual reality and augmented reality are changing the way users interact with entertainment.

Work in teams to brainstorm, design and prototype the participatory transmedia storytelling strategy around a new television documentary. The Laps follows two surfers who leave their families, friends and comfort zone on a journey of discovery to re-connect with nature and learn how we can reverse the cycle of our planet’s destruction by casting off the 'consumption = happiness' mantra.

The goal of this project is to design a participatory audience experience strategy utilising the power of storytelling across web, mobile, tablet and other platforms and interactive digital storytelling using new technologies like VR/AR.

The Laps cast Dustin Hollick, alongside producer Angie Davis, will be joining 8 hand-selected learners over the next 6 weeks, working on transmedia solutions to amplify the storytelling of The Laps TV.
