Alex Kane:  '“Today’s most innovative artists are always looking for new ways to push boundaries, with their music and their means of connecting with fans,” says [Lucas] Wilson. “[...] We’re used to going to concerts, but very few of us have actually been on stage. We’ve grown accustomed to hearing from our favorite artists on social media, but rarely do those words come directly from their mouths. VR is changing all that. It’s the most personal way of connecting with your fans.”'

Lianne Picot's curator insight, January 18, 2016 3:55 PM

I just love the breadth and depth of story and this slide share really shows how it can be used fully! It's focused on public good but there are lots of great insights and learning for business too. Telling stories across a range of mediums and developing a 'story world'? Brilliant!


You can do this in your non profit or business too. Whether it's through character development on social media or creating an interactive game for your audience, you can make your story come to life in lots of different ways. Some great examples of organizations and how they have done it here too.


This review was written by Lianne Picot for her curated content on business storytelling at www.scoop.it/t/just-story-it. You can join Lianne to talk story  in her online story community at the Story Powered® Institute

The First-Ever Snapchat Movie is Here, and it's Horrifying—Go Behind the Scenes

The First-Ever Snapchat Movie is Here, and it's Horrifying—Go Behind the Scenes | Hitchhiker | Scoop.it

Minna Kilpeläinen's insight:
Snapchat movie Sickhouse was a real success. "Everyone was hooked. People trust that what they are seeing on their snap stories is real", said he director Hannah Macpherson. One key was to cast a protagonist who already was a social media pop star (Andrea Russett). She posted the videos from her own account.

Emily Buder:  "We go behind the scenes of the first Snapchat movie, a real-time horror flick."

Dr. Pamela Rutledge's curator insight, June 27, 2016 11:57 AM

Sickhouse - the first SnapChat-based film--brought to mind Blair Witch Project.  Both are revolutionary in their use of media to capture authenticity, breaking the fourth wall, and capturing the audience's imagination by fiddling with reality vs. fiction.  Using SnapChat is a clever device to make the film timely and raw.  

 

First adopters always have the advantage of challenging the audience's existing mental models about where and how reality ends and fiction begins.  This is a nice metaphor for social technologies as an extension of the social space rather than "some other place."  It is exactly that understanding that made the initial launch so powerful.

 

SnapChat also demands a 'Heminwayesqe' brevity and succinctness to scene construction, especially in real time.  Creating a horror film is a bit of a cheat as all that heightened anxiety increases the "need to know" among the audience that encourages following the story through.  Nevertheless, with so many moving parts, it makes sense to use a genre with wide socioemotional appeal.

 

The irony is that it didn't all disappear in the SnapChat way, and thus challenges how we understand SnapChat as well.  I have wondered for some time, given the creativity that SnapChat unleashes, how long people will be willing to just let their mini-artworks go into the ether.  When we create, it is part of us.  We have a long history of documenting acts of creativity because it is how we share our most human qualities.

Hollow is a digital documentary that lives through its protagonists and it is full of good ideas - even though the design and UX are not as tight as, let's say Pinepoint.

 

It includes some nice features and in this article, the creators come back on the production production, both from a writing and designing standpoints. Good read
