Pitching 'The Art of Perseverance' at Storycode


Published on

Hats off to my mate Ester Harding for launching the Sydney Chapter of Storycode.

Storycode chapters convene real life events designed to educate, inform and connect creators of immersive and interactive stories. At the core of the Storycode movement is the willingness to make, experiment and participate in growing a broad and expansive discipline which will spawn new immersive experiences, stories and technologies.

Their second meeting is on this Thursday and I successfully applied to be one of 5 pitchers at the event, presenting The Art of Perseverance.
I’ll pop my presentation and some reflections via a blog post after the event, but do come along.
After the pitching, there is a presentation from Michael Hughes at Soap Creative who developed the transmedia campaign for the new Aussie flick These Final Hours. We then get the added bonus of seeing the film for free!
