May 22 @ 19:00 - 21:00
FilmTech Meetup #10, May 22, Berlin
USER CENTERED STORYTELLING FOR A CONNECTED WORLD
The advent of digital has brought new challenges to how we create media. Finding and connecting with audiences has become more difficult, but the reward is a relationship with users that can be much more direct and productive than ever before. In his new book, narrative designer Egbert van Wyngaarden proposes a user-centric approach to making media for the digital space, suggesting we use data, not opinions, to inform content creation and distribution.
Egbert van Wyngaarden is screenwriter and media innovator based in Germany. He heads the FIRST MOVIE PLUS program at the Bavarian Film Centre and is PROFESSOR OF SCREENWRITING at Macromedia University in Munich. His creative work includes films, TV features, interactive apps, AR games and educational VR. His forthcoming book on digital storytelling presents a human-centered approach to emerging media at the crossroads of creativity, technology and business. Egbert is co-founder and chairman of the EU-funded network of media professionals Transmedia Bayern. His working languages are English, German, French, Italian and Dutch.
