Example Workshops

Short Course: Game Design
May 2023
Taught for Sphinx International Art Education

This short course looked at turning a well-known story into a game. Taught sessions included considering the interactive elements of the story, the possible role of ai in future gaming narratives and the production of a prototype of a game to share with the group. In doing so, you will be able to consider what happens to narrative when it changes to include interaction.

Short Course: Storytelling
January 2022
Taught for Sphinx International Art Education

Stories are the fundamentals of what makes humans social beings and thus able to transform the world around us. It is also the basis of many types of art and design disciplines, including Communication Design, Games Design, Product Design, Visual Communication, Animation, Contemporary Art Practice and more.  The short course provided an introduction to all aspects of narrative design, including understanding how to develop a narrative, explore its relationship to modes of communication (i.e., image, sound, audience interaction etc), materials and most importantly the audience.
