What activities will the Creators Fund support you to undertake?
I will be researching and developing the concept of live film experience.
Can you talk us through what your work routine will look like with the help of a creator's fund grant?
I will be conducting interviews with highly skilled practioners in the immersive theatre space, writing, and developing a live film experience prototype.
Where would you like to see yourself and your career at the end of this process?
I would like to see this being the first step to a much larger scale project. An immersive theatre experience where a feature film is shot amongst the audiences and streamed online in real-time.
