Digital Bootcamp Yukon

Working on a digital interactive story-telling project but wish you had one on one time with a tech genius? Have an idea for an interactive story but don’t know where to start?

In partnership with National Film Board of Canada, YFS is presenting a 3-day intensive Digital Bootcamp!

Over the course of 3 days, participants will have the opportunity to work on their projects alongside digital consultant Sue Biely, interactive web developing genius Steve Lindenberg, and digital strategist Nicholas Klassen to bring interactive story telling ideas to life!

Participants will be introduced to the basic principles of digital storytelling, review a range of existing projects, and chart out the process of conceptualizing, designing, and developing fiction and non-fiction interactive stories of their own.

Participants can apply as individuals or as teams if you have several collaborators for the same project. (Discount for teams! See fees further).
Instructors and facilitators:

Sue Biely (Vancouver): Sue uses a flexible approach to designing learning experiences that includes interactive lectures, workshops, and one-on-one or group coaching. Methods grounded in generative research recognize participants as collaborators and creators. Sue feels it is her job to create the space and circumstances where students can express their innate creativity in response to specific questions or challenges. Her training is in systems thinking, design thinking and adaptive leadership which helps Sue to move her clients out of old ways of doing and thinking and into an adaptive future.

Steve Lindenberg (Vancouver): Steve, better known as Berger, began his career as an interactive developer and continues to stretch his abilities in the coding world. Well versed in a multitude of technologies and mark-up languages, Berger brings interactive ideas to life and is happiest when solving interesting coding challenges.

Nicholas Klassen (Vancouver): Nicholas is a Vancouver-based digital strategist and writer with over a decade of experience creating and producing online content for the social and cultural sector. He has been an interactive editor at the Digital Studio of the National Film Board, senior editor at Adbusters magazine, and has advised leading movement-building organizations like Greenpeace, WWF, and Avaaz.org on a number of Webby-award winning and nominated projects.
