Reframed brings together storytellers and technological pioneers from the converging worlds of film, gaming and contemporary arts and media, to provide structured learning and workshops, combined with high-level mentoring from industry practitioners, peer-to-peer support, and space to test and explore ideas in a stimulating, fun and collaborative environment.

Elliott Hall, Tom Bowtell and Dr Ariana Ciula are one of six individuals/teams selected to develop a project idea using emerging creative practices and technical processes, including VR, games, augmented reality and 360°.
