Challenges and Commissions

As well as offering training, development and mentoring programmes, StoryFutures Academy works closely with the UK Screen Industries to co-fund immersive challenges and commissions. Our aim by doing this is to create entry points for the UK’s world-leading creative talent and companies into immersive storytelling and push forward the state of the art in this field.

Working closely with content commissioners such as BBC Three we develop and co-fund specific challenges. We then help screen industry talent and companies respond to those challenges and via workshops, mentoring & open innovation develop a series of audience facing prototypes.

There are currently no challenge calls open. News and updates will be posted here as they are released.
