Buzzing for the Best

Telus' StoryHive contest apply by Jan 29 with project

By Telus staff



s part of STORYHIVE’s community, you’re the first to know about the Immersive Edition, which launches today! This is a special announcement just for folks in the STORYHIVE Creator Directory.

So, here’s the scoop: We’re offering ten $40,000 production grants to produce a 360 VR video project (the “Immersive Project”) and a companion digital short (the “Linear Project”). This is your chance to use VR technology to do what you do best: tell stories.

We’re looking for projects that are rich in story — think: story first, platform second. Successful Immersive Projects will leverage the 360 experience to enrich the narrative.


Winners will also produce a short film that shares the story and/or subject matter of the Immersive Project. For example, the Linear Project could be a making-of or behind-the-scenes short, or it could tell the story from the perspective of a different character. You can find all the details on STORYHIVE.com.

Here is what you need to apply:

• A great idea for a pair of stories: an immersive project and companion linear project.
• Eligible Project Lead (Canadian Citizen and resident of BC or AB)
• Multimedia submission (60-second pitch video, title card, box art and production design)
• A budget breakdown
• A project team (optional)

Don’t miss your chance at one of ten $40,000 grants to produce TWO films. Plus, get training and mentorship in cinematic VR and receive distribution on TELUS Optic TV On Demand and online. Apply before 12 pm (noon) PST on January 29, 2018.
