REFRAMED 2017: PROJECT DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMME
JULY – OCTOBER 2017
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.
Steven Eastwood was one of seven individuals/teams selected to develop a project idea using emerging creative practices and technical processes, including VR, games, augmented reality and 360°.
ABOUT STEVEN EASTWOOD
Steven Eastwood is an artist-filmmaker working between the cinema and gallery, whose practice is concerned with ethics. He has screened and exhibited internationally, completed two feature length films, and been the recipient of numerous awards and nominated for a Grierson Award. He is a reader in Film Practice at Queen Mary University London and gained his PhD through UCL and the Slade, and has published widely.
THE PROJECT: NEUROTRIBES
Neurotribes is a VR moving image work that explores the experiences of two characters living with autism, in which the viewer shares their perspective. The film maps the richness and complexity of their different experiences and explores how autism can transcend the restrictions and social constructs of a ‘neuro-typical’ world-view.
