Workshops/Masterclasses Attended

Future Artists - VR Arts Lab 2: Pink RaVE

17th - 19th November 2017

Production groups will either make a game, or create a piece of virtual reality cinema – using parts of the book, Ready Player One, as inspiration to create their own narratives. The lab also encourages a transmedia approach to storytelling, combining the physical book or audio book, with VR / AR and the use of space.

Harry Roberts‘ Front-end Performance

Performance is big business. Every case study out there tells us that users hate slow experiences, and that faster experiences generate more conversions: more conversions means more money.
