Meet the young artists on our Creative Futures programme.

Name: Ryan Grist

Age: 22

Art form: Game Developer/ Story writer/ Video Editor

What made you apply for Creative Futures?

This was the perfect opportunity to learn and expand my creative voice for game design. This gave me the space and resources to grow as an independent developer and working with many other creative individuals allowed me to learn more than I thought I could.

Tell us about the piece of work you’re currently making.

I am currently working on three separate stories that will be used in their respective games, I am also focusing on creating a game that combines the three very different worlds turning them into a whole new narrative. A Universe of highly advance humans and aliens, an underground dystopian city and a vast lush fantasy continent of spellcasters and monsters all clash in the dimensions between each of their worlds.

What are you most excited to do on Creative Futures?

Expanding my ability to share and show stories, learn new art forms and get to know other very creative people and understand their story and art.

Where do you see yourself at the end of the programme?

At a cross road that will lead me to anywhere I want to go, with the skills, people and knowledge I have gained from this programme. Focused and ready for everything.
