The aim is to create a psycho-geography of each town and city which combines the sort of good old fashioned storytelling you might hear on the very best radio programmes or podcasts with the very latest scanning technologies and use of 3D models you might come across in video games and mobile augmented reality experiences.
The maps will then be produced and rendered into large fly through experiences audiences will be able to sit in front of in their local library and navigate themselves around the map using a browser based iPad experience. It will also be available free for audiences to explore in their local library.
StoryTrails is a unique immersive storytelling experience, led by StoryFutures Academy which is run by Royal Holloway, University of London and the National Film and Television School (NFTS).
Guided by a mobile AR app, you will be led at your own pace to different story points along a route with a choice of story trails to follow.
