Lumina is a series about how tech innovations challenge and shape the way we share stories.Our host is the Head of Curation at Tedx Sydney Fenella Kernebone, a former presenter at ABC’s Radio National and Triple J. In the series, Fenella speaks to a carefully curated brainstrust of storytellers about why technological developments in the industry, and in our society, are something to be excited about, not daunted by. Across a dozen interviews, Fenella investigates topics such as the future of books, how interactive stories can be made for Smart Speakers, whether creatives should fear the rise of Artificial Intelligence and why Virtual Reality is a powerful tool for empathy. Throughout the episodes, Fenella becomes the test bunny, plugging herself into biometric readers and experimenting with interactive sci-fi podcasts, to get to the bottom of how storytelling is rapidly changing. Our talent are at different stages of their careers, some have a creative practice, others belong in the technology development, but all are storytellers at heart. Lumina is produced for AFTRS by Audiocraft, with Selena Shannon and Jess O’Callaghan. Our sound engineer is Ryan Pemberton, and our Executive Producer is Kate Montague.
