To support our community of filmmakers during the early stages of the COVID-19 pandemic, we made the decision to remove the $50 fee for Sundance Collab Master Classes. As we meet this next moment and continue to support artists through our content, we are reinstating a discounted fee of $27 for on-demand recordings.
Both Master Class live event registration and on-demand recording access to this and more than 40 other Master Classes are included in Collaborator and All Access memberships. Upgrade today and get a free 14-day trial.
Master Classes are in-depth, interactive learning experiences focused on craft and career building and led by renowned industry experts. Topics include fiction and documentary filmmaking, TV writing and production, and navigating and succeeding in the entertainment industry.
This three-hour, live, online master class with a top game designer explored games that tell stories to show how game mechanics are storytelling tools and how interactivity can be used to create narrative experiences in almost any medium. You will be led through an analysis of the storytelling techniques of several popular games, and participate in an exercise that reveals how game mechanics can be used to create aesthetics and stories.
The class will focus on what traditional screenwriters can learn from game designers and writers, including:
- Where story innovation is happening in games
- How player choice can be narrative
- How to create, and more importantly test, narrative play
- The theory underlying effective narrative game design
