Bradley Crooks has played a lot of games. He grew up on coin ops in a small seaside town in England and then moved to London to play some more. Whilst he was supposed to be in lectures, he played his first VR game which involved lots of money but very few pixels. Since then though he's always had a dream of recreating the magic and immersion of that experience, but with a few more pixels and a little less neck-ache. He also looks after bringing BBC brands to gaming and interactive entertainment. https://www.linkedin.com/in/bradleycrooks/
I will be talking about how new technology channels, and particularly VR, are opening up opportunities for content makers to develop new formats for storytelling. In particular there is a wealth of opportunity for traditional media creators in formats like TV and film to reach new audiences and generate new revenue streams.

Develop seems much more informal and friendly than other events and that makes it stand out as a conference – people really look forward to Develop.
I really like Develop, I really like the intimacy of it and I love the location.. there’s a good diversity of talks going on so there hasn’t been a time when there’s nothing I want to see.
There’s a pretty good social element to Develop. A lot of the opportunities that come from being here are speaking to other developers that are doing exactly the same thing as you. And there are some good parties – it’s very much a pleasurable work experience!
There are many ways you can be part of Develop:Brighton 2018 - including speaking in the conference, taking a booth in the Expo or becoming a sponsor.Find out more
