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.

George Butler, Adas Slezas, Olivia Madume and Szymon Wyrzykowski are 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°.


George Butler is Managing Director of Mutiny Media with experience of facilitating and managing digital media and participatory video projects. Adas Slezas is a VR/AR developer, primarily using Unity3d, particularly for audio and data analysis, image processing and device control. Olivia Madume is currently studying for a Bsc in Computing for Digital Media at the University of Sussex, and has a broad knowledge across live video production, database development, 3D graphics, computer games, websites, TV idents and interactive magazines. Szymon Wyrzykowski is a conceptual creative compositor and camera operator specialising in 360 video.


Influenced by MIT’s ELIZA project in the 1960s, which developed AI to simulate human conversation, The Digital Cocoon encourages users to question the nature of AI – does it ever ‘know’ anything or is it programmed to give the appearance of knowing? Using VR and AR platforms, participants are taken on a personal and unique journey which explores their relationship with technology, as an artificial intelligence builds its knowledge about them using information from their social media.

Reframed is run by Lighthouse as part of its Studio programme, and supported by the National Lottery through the BFI and Creative England, with additional support from the University of Brighton.

The Reframed Project Development Programme is part of a wider programme, which included a series of Reframed Talks and Workshops with leaders and innovators from the fields of film, games, sound, contemporary arts and media to explore emerging practices within the realm of immersive and interactive storytelling.
