Together with the creative industry in Fredrikstad and Blender Collective, FAF presents a breakfast seminar to kick-start the festival on Thursday morning. Neil Pymer, a creative director connected to the interactive department at Aardman, will hold a workshop that he usually runs for Aardman Academy, covering the company’s brainstorming and paper prototyping processes. Helping sow the seeds of original and exciting ideas, encouraging creators to stay loose and free in the early stages of a project, the focus is on failing fast, working in groups and experimental learning using practical tools to help inspire future creativity. In this frantic course of interactive design, the participants dissect a story, then brainstorm suitable gaming formats and get hands-on with paper prototyping, designing a game or other interactive experience.
Practical information: limited access.

The workshop is free for members of Blender Collective. Other participants must obtain a valid festival pass (Industry pass, Student pass or thursday day pass ).
