The Art of Cinematic Storytelling in Video Games

4:00pm - 4:45pm
Room 1

Exploring the craft of cinematic storytelling in video games, multi-award-winning writer and director Eloise Singer will draw upon her experience as a filmmaker and creative director to share her insights into creating compelling story worlds within games.

Eloise will discuss how her background in filmmaking has been creatively significant when developing narrative games. She will also offer insights into creating strong narratives and attaching talent to your game.

Eloise’s latest project, the VR narrative adventure ‘The Pirate Queen with Lucy Liu,’ supported by BFI, Meta, and Epic Games, won the Tribeca Storyscapes Award and the Raindance Discovery Award, and was released on Meta Quest in 2024. The award-winning game featured a writers’ room before the development of the game’s mechanics, resulting in an immersive experience centred around a compelling true story of an otherwise little-known historical figure.

Eloise will share her insights into the impact of this approach, how to create compelling characters, and what you can do to improve your dialogue to help an actor’s performance.

Additionally, Eloise will explore practical techniques for integrating cinematic storytelling into video game narrative design and recognising how creative obstacles can become opportunities.
