The DOK Leipzig Net Lab 2014 is a two part conference lab, which offers new insights on transmedia storytelling and production, provides a platform to exchange and network and creates the opportunity to join forces with experienced colleagues and international tutors.

The selected project teams get intense individual support for their cross media project, with an in-depth look at interactive storytelling and media architecture.

Day one offers inspirational talks, case studies, presentations and round table meetings with international experts. This is a platform where up to 60 international media creatives meet like-minded people, build new networks, exchange ideas and share their experiences.
Day two is dedicated to intense tutoring and support for the eight hand-picked transmedia projects in progress and their teams; we provide concrete support for projects in development, production or post-production stage. International crossmedia experts will share their knowledge, provide engaged mentoring and give individual advice for each project. This will be a mix of group work, in-depth analysis and individual meetings.
