This summer National Youth Theatre in collaboration with Central Saint Martins will pilot a brand new Digital Storytelling course for young people, designed to discover and develop a new generation of digital theatrical talent. Whether you primarily consider yourself as a director, designer, performer, digital specialist, artist or technician, this course is for anyone interested in exploring how digital technology can be used as an integral part of theatrical storytelling.
Led by industry experts, the course will provide an introduction to a range of digital technologies currently being used by innovative theatre makers and ask how do you create a piece of theatre using virtual reality. Participants will create a piece of theatre using 360 video on this one week course, which they will then share with an invited industry audience on the final day.
Successful applicants will gain National Youth Theatre Digital Membership and all the benefits that entails, including the opportunity to work on large-scale theatrical productions and digital projects in West End theatres, leading theatre around the UK, stadiums, epic non-traditional outdoor spaces and internationally.
This six day course will be led by NYT Digital Associate Ben Carlin. Ben is a professional 360 interactive filmmaker; Creative Director of Epiphany VR, associate member of the BAFTA VR advisory committee and guest lecturer in Digital Media Production at Sheffield Hallam University.
This course is open to anyone aged 15-25.
