Immersive technologies are still evolving and changing in a breath-taking tempo, but the real challenge for creators is to understand the new grammar of spatial and sensorial narratives.
Still at the stadium of research and discovery international artists are already providing exciting and sparkling experiences, VR installations, VR and AR artwork, enchanting cinematicVR films and are pushing the boundaries of interactive and non-linear storytelling.
After the great successes in 2017 and 2018, we are now opening the application for the third edition: the European Creators’ Lab.
The European Creators' Lab is tailored for writers, directors, VR/AR developers, game designers, programmers, 360° filmmakers, techies, creative producers, journalists, media enthusiasts, artists and everyone with a solid professional background and a large portion of curiosity and open-mindedness.
What do we do?
The lab hosted 50 participants, partners and mentors from 23 nations each year and quickly evolved into a vibrant networking space. Here, creatives exchange their knowledge and develop ideas up to the first prototype together in teams, mentored by international experts. We focus on storytelling, content development and the creative challenges of immersive worlds.
The 5-day training is packed with intensive expert sessions, keynotes and hands-on workshops. It is a safe space to learn, explore, experiment and collaborate – in a totally competitive-free, multidisciplinary, creative, bubbling environment.
We are proud to welcome some of the best creators and experts as mentors: Lena Fischer, Hsin-Chien Huang, Tupac Martir, Elisabeth Mayer, Fabrizio Palmas, Michel Reilhac, Sara Lisa Vogl, Daniel 'Kip' Doornink, Liz Rosenthal, Lucas Rizotto, Barney Steel, Mads Damsbo, Ulrich Schrauth, Avinash Changa and Astrid Kahmke.
Head of the European Creators’ Lab is Astrid Kahmke, Bavarian Film Center.
The European Creators' Lab is aimed at authors, directors, VR/AR developers, game designers, programmers, 360° filmmakers, technicians, creative producers, journalists, media enthusiasts, artists and everyone with a solid professional background and a large portion of curiosity and openness.
