Rebecca is looking to create never-before-seen interactive story-telling that will mix linear television and gaming to provide viewers with a dynamic blended reality. She recently worked on Traitor by Pilot Theatre, a VR-live theatre thriller that premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival, which has inspired her to explore the medium of interactive TV.
Rebecca completed her undergraduate degree in Interactive Media at the University of York where she learned a wide range of coding, user design, and media theory.
Rebecca plans to use the £25,000 investment to create television pilots that put the viewer in control of the cameras and gives them the options to follow certain characters.
Rebecca was inspired to apply to the Sky Women in Tech Scholarship as a result of Sky’s investment in its own inhouse content and wants to use Sky’s knowledge to turn her creative vision into a reality.
“I’ve had the idea to create an interactive TV pilot for around 5 years now, and I thought the SkyWomen in Tech Scholarshipwould be a really good way to talk to people who know what they’re doing within television and technology and hopefully make something really cool.”
“I can code all day and get into the flow of it. I knew that I wanted to create interesting storytelling content and tech was the vehicle for me to do that.”
