Transmedia London is running its first Unconference - an event where all the talks are made by attendees! We're doing it in conjunction with GameCamp and Six to Start, and it's being hosted at the lovely Mozilla offices in central London, so it's a great opportunity to spend some serious time talking with other transmedia creators and gamers.

Start of Play is all about getting a start: starting a game or transmedia project, starting a career in the field, or starting a company.

Ever wanted to talk about the nitty-gritty aspects of film transmedia? Run a session! Keen to find like-minded souls in publishing or games transmedia? Run a session! This is an event where you get to set the agenda!

Confirmed featured speakers already include Jon Aird (BBC/Psychoville Experience), Holly Gramazio (Hide and Seek), Naomi Alderman (author), Yomi Ayeni (The Clockwork Watch), Adrian Hon (Six to Start), and we have plenty more in the pipeline who we think you'll love.
