Master Class Sten-Kristian Saluveer: How to future-proof yourself as Storyteller: Exploring Data, Game Engines, Platforms and the Metaverse

Only for participants and mentors of the HessenLab

Humankind is now undergoing the most extraordinary creative, cultural, and technological (r)evolution. Digital creation tools and hardware have shaken up established hierarchies, allowing anyone to express their creative impulse in the highest artistic capacity. Platforms with extraordinary network effects and economies of scale have boosted creators into superstars. Advances in Algorithmic, Data, and Artificial Intelligence tools such as Dall E, Mid journey, or Synthetic Audio have given us deep insights into how to better tailor content and conjure synthetic images, voices, and videos indistinguishable from real humans. And above all, the explosion of avatars, graphic processing, real-time game engines, and the Web3 will soon drive us to experience collaboration between the real and the imagined in creativity, work, and play.

What does this new "real-time reality" mean for us as humans and creators?  How is it challenging and transforming our spheres of culture, creativity, and business when an average person spends half of their day with a video screen and with moving content or an algorithmic social media platform acquires half a billion new clients every month?  Where, how, and when is the Metaverse coming, and what role are independent creators going to play?

The masterclass by Sten-Kristian Saluveer - Europe and Japan-based film and technology visionary, producer, curator, innovation strategist, and entrepreneur - will explore the most critical waves of technological innovations and transitions that push us towards the new paradigm for Creativity 3.0 and what skills, tools, and resources creatives need to surf the wave of this unprecedented (r)evolution.
