Creating Digital Fiction: Hands-On

Dreaming Methods offer a series of unique workshops on the production of digital fiction and interactive stories with digital artist/writer/developer Andy Campbell and film-maker/digital artist Judi Alston. We bring a friendly, down-to-earth and hugely enthusiastic artist/writer-led approach to software training - awesome techniques with fast and rewarding results, no coding involved and no technical jargon.

Digital Storytelling with Unity

This workshop is designed for artists/writers who are completely new to Unity but would like to learn the basics fast and uncover the potential - without worrying about writing code. Take a tour of the interface, then drive straight in and create a small interactive narrative-driven scene using free 3D models and an assortment of digital assets. Publish your output and take it home on a Flash drive. 

Virtual Reality Storytelling

A hands-on introduction to creating digital stories in Virtual Reality using Unity. Take a tour of Unity's interface and functionality, download a bundle of free assets, and then step-by-step build an amazing VR scene and step into it through the Oculus Rift. No previous VR experience necessary - and no coding involved.

Interactive Fiction with Twine

Aimed at writers/English/new media students - or anyone wanting to create online interactive stories that incorporate rich media (images, audio, video) and branching narratives - this workshop explores how to use Twine, a free online tool with advanced capabilities. Dream up an interactive work of fiction from scratch or adapt one of the stories we provide as a starter.
