5D & USC School of Cinematic Arts Worldbuilding Summit
FLUX: Digital Design and Worldbuilding for Narrative Media is a three-part exploration into design as the backbone of digital narrative media, addressing the changing role of the designer in storytelling through world building practices. Presented by The 5D | Institute and the USC School of Cinematic Arts, the Summit -- curated by Alex McDowell (Creative Director, 5D | Institute) and Peggy Weil (USC SCA Interactive Media Division) -- will be held March 13–15 at USC’s Ray Stark Family Theatre in Los Angeles, and will include panel discussions, audience participation and networking receptions.
Worldbuilding is the new metaphor for the creation and actualizing of the story space in narrative media and will be the theme of the Summit. It addresses narrative design thinking, the immersive process and the experience of creating new worlds. It expresses the full arc of the role of design in Storytelling.
With this first in a series of Worldbuilding Summits, the 5D | Institute and the USC School of Cinematic Arts will use their unique access to frame an investigation into the language and practices of digital design methodologies, applying learning from thought leaders in core media industries to an interdisciplinary discussion space within and across media.
