The Challenge

"The reality that doesn't exist"

EIIS uses innovative formats and tools that promote learning through group work, workshops and practical exercises. We are strong supporters of the “Challenge-based learning” approach, a method that, starting from a real existing problem encourages participants to cooperate and to find, together, a possible solution.

At the end of the course you will participate with your peers to a final challenge.

We are pleased, thanks to the participation of our sponsor Rai Cinema, to grant the winners of this challenge a unique opportunity:

“The Reality That Doesn’t Exist” aims to select the best script for a VR short film and the development of a cross-media project; students of the From zero to VR course will have the opportunity to experience the development of the VR storyboard of the contest winning script.

The best storyboard will be the official storyboard of the VR short film that One More Pictures and Rai Cinema will produce within the year and that will be presented at the Dubai 2020 Expo
