Update!: new sponsor (FilmVic), workshop (locative play), speaker (ABC)


Hello everyone! Here we are on the final day of the first round of applications. Submissions are streaming in from film, TV, digital, gaming, theatre, music, and literature professionals. You’re a fantastic bunch who will enjoy meeting each other.

Before we close this first round of applications (at midnight tonight), we’ve got some exciting updates. The first is our new sponsor: Film Victoria! Wohoo! We’re very happy to have Film Victoria a part of this event, along with our other esteemed sponsors and supporters: Australia Council for the Arts, Arts Victoria, Screen Australia, Multimedia Victoria, ABC TV, ACMI, State Library of Victoria, AIMIA and the GDAA.

The second is a new workshop by Tassos Stevens (UK), where participants will go through the process of creating a playful experience using the State Library space:

Adventure with Whatever Comes to Hand – Tassos Stevens [Note: this session runs at the same time as Phil Morle’s Bootcamp workshop]

Here you are in a library in Melbourne. An adventure starts here and now. What’s the reconnaissance needed to discover what we can make happen? A workshop exploring the how and why of playful adventure, and the wider implications for making all kinds of play.

Those who have already applied will be notified by email and invited to apply for this workshop (or chose between it and Phil Morle’s Bootcamp session). We also have a new speaker, the Executive Producer Multiplatform at ABC TV, Stephanie Salter, who will talk about their process in choosing media platforms according to specific content.

We’ve very excited about this event and from the messages and applications we’ve been getting, so are you. 🙂
