OCAD Seeks Instructor for Time-Based/Transmedia Narrative Course






PSST! Hey Alumni…

OCAD is looking for an instructor for their Time-Based/Transmedia Narrative course to start this Fall, so you will have to act fast!

Time-Based/Transmedia Narrative course (ADVR 3B03):
This course continues the study of trans-media narrative and introduces the subject of storytelling and the construction of a narrative structure as students gain an understanding of time-based media across a number of traditional and emerging platforms. Instruction includes the creation of scripts, their refinement and pre-production requirements. As well, students are introduced to professional techniques that will support the execution of their advertising concepts. Projects will include television commercials, time-based web media and other media currently used in conjunction with modern global advertising.
