What to submit?

A short story that you have created, and would like to develop into an immersive experience.


The format for your story is free choice. It could be a script, storyboards, a video or animation, audio, flat or 360 photo/video, moodboards, concept art, light projections, LARP-setup, live performance or a 3D world / environment in a virtual venue like Mozilla Hubs, VR-chat etc. Or any combination.


In short, anything that shows your initiative and view of storytelling in immersive narrative formats.


What to Showcase?


Your work sample should be focused on describing your view of immersive storytelling and showcase the field you would like to explore. However, you can always add your portfolio or mention other ideas you have worked on in the last paragraph of the document you submit.


It doesn’t have to be a polished ready-to-be-released experience. Prototype or a concept will do just fine!


Format for work sample submission

Maximum five (5) pages.


Save in PDF format.


Name the file [firstname_surname.pdf].


Make sure any links to third-party or other services (Mozilla hubs, Vimeo, Shapes XR, etc.) are accessible and made available to un-registered users.




Is prior tech knowledge mandatory?


Producing immersive experiences requires some knowledge of the techniques on how to make them, (or why they don’t work)  so it is preferable to have some sort of technical knowledge, but it is not a requirement.


There are no specific requirements for any software. You can use the software that best suits your needs, for now.


Most importantly is your intention, that you have started looking into how to explore immersive experiences or how to create them.
