HELLO! MY NAME IS BEK WA GORO, AND I'M THRILLED TO HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO INTRODUCE MYSELF.
"I think of writing and creativity as a kind of vehicle that can allow us to traverse time and space faster than the speed of light, that can allow us to go back in time, to experience the present in all of its vibrancy, and to go beyond the future. I feel that they are a physical artefact of the imagination, guided by a writer and consumed either directly as words on a page, or indirectly through media. They are not simply an exchange of cultural expression but that they are an expression of culture itself."
I have, over time, gained a wealth of artistic experience and knowledge which I bring to innovative work on page, on screen, on the web, and through immersive experiences. As a professionally trained Screenwriter, I have gained a strong comprehension of the processes involved in creative development and production, with over fifteen years professional experience in Entertainment and the Arts. In addition to my passion for creativity and innovation, I have an academic interest in immersive technologies including Augmented Reality, Mixed Reality, and Extended Reality, their interaction with Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence and how these technologies are reshaping our experiences of films.
I am currently studying a PhD in Architectural Space and Computation at the renown Bartlett School of Architecture at University College London which I am due to complete in 2027.
