Welcome to Week 3: the future…

Watch Ed Braman introduce us to the next week, where we'll look at how the screen industries are using new technologies to move into the future.

Last week we focussed investigating ‘storytelling’, and started by thinking about the films, tv shows and games we know and love, and the stories that they tell. We also delved into the world of interactive storytelling, and thought about how you might start a career in the games industry.

In our final week we’d like you to gaze into the future! What do you think tv, games and films will be consumed in 5, 10, 50 years time? How will future technologies shape the stories that we tell?
