As part of our regular Pervasive Media Studio’s lunchtime talk programme, BBC R&D present their StoryKit suite of tools for creating Object-Based Media experiences as used for the pioneering BBC Click 1000, Instagramification and the interactive trailer for His Dark Materials, “Discover Your Daemon.” 

They will introduce the tools, how they work and show you how you can get involved in exploiting this exciting new medium through the BBC’s Makerbox portal. 

Digital Cities Bristol takes place across the city from January 25 - Febuary 2 2020  and is an opportunity to boost your digital skills with free training and events as part of the Digital Cities initiative touring the UK.

This Lunchtime Talk is part of Open Studio Friday, which takes place at the Studio every week.
