Matthew Weise presents ‘The Origins of Stories’

MFA Visual Narrative presents game designer Matthew Weise, as he explores questions such as, “Where do stories come from? Why do we love the characters we love? Why were there almost no movies about WWII between the late 60s and the late 90s? Why is Superman so depressed these days? Why are some stories popular while others struggle to find an audience?” and more.

Matthew Weise is a game designer whose work spans industry and academia. He co-founded both Fiction Control and Empathy Box, two companies that specialize in narrative design for games and across media. matthewweise.com
