I’ve been accepted into the Storyworld Studio Workshop run by Mike Jones, which is currently underway at Metroscreen! Finding it really useful, Mike has done a great job of puling together a refreshing and accessible new approach to developing multiplatform projects. So many new tools to use!

Here’s some more info:
