This white paper was commissioned by the Innovate UK Immersive Tech Network, the UK government’s leading network for immersive technology innovators, and Arts Council England. It examines the experience of the independent XR creators of ‘Child
of Empire’, who were able to successfully navigate turning their idea into a fully realized internationally touring piece of immersive work.

The UK is home to some of the best producers of immersive content in the world. Despite significant growth in the sector and wider adoption of the technology in recent years, the barriers to entry to immersive production remain quite high, especially for those outside of established production companies.

This white paper looks at challenges the project faced with the creative process, building the right team, accessing funding, and touring the work to a wide range of international venues. We hope the deep dive into this project’s production journey, and the key lessons learned from the team can offer insight to creatives who are just getting started in immersive production.
