Taking Story Into the Future
Story Edge brings together storytellers, designers, creative technologists and producers to collaborate on transformative, immersive stories told across interactive digital platforms.
Through a series of Sandboxes we offer master-classes and labs designed to build interactive digital story-world capabilities. The shape of each Sandbox is determined by the topic and the mentors – all based around the theme of creating an interactive story.
Story Edge is a companion event to the Screen Edge Forum and Doc Edge Festival. It continues the work of the Documentary New Zealand Trust to seed innovation in the NZ Screen sector.
Story Edge is supported by the New Zealand Commission and NZ on Air.
