When Should You Show the Monster? The Rules of “Cinematic Foreplay.”

When Should You Show the Monster? The Rules of “Cinematic Foreplay.” | Tracking Transmedia | Scoop.it

Footprints. A ripple in a glass of water. A rustling in the trees. Perhaps a shadow or a glimpse of a tail before—finally—the close-up. The big reveal makes or breaks a monster movie. Either the audience is primed to feel awe and terror in that moment, or you’ve made a monster mistake....

Simon Staffans: To belong and be unique - how transmedia can help | Tracking Transmedia | Scoop.it

"One discussion I had at Input 2014 arose from a Twitter conversation I’d had with people attending the Mobile West Africa conference in Lagos, Nigeria. There, the mobile penetration is quite amazing, and mobile reportedly counts for 9.5% of Nigeria’s total GDP.


The truth I realized while talking about how youth in Nigeria use mobile to connect and reaffirm, might seem like a basic one, but I can feel that it will have an impact on how I approach development work on future projects...."

"Choose Your Own Documentary is a live performance of a documentary where the audience choose which way to take the story at numerous decision points – there are 1500 different outcomes… 

The show is inspired by the Choose Your Own Adventure books that were popular in the 1980’s. I was VERY INTRIGUED when I heard about this project. Here’s the trailer...."

siobhan-o-flynn's insight:

Krish:
I can’t wait to see it. The trailer looks great and you seem to have a lot of positive buzz on the project.

Nathan:
The hard thing we’ve had is trying to explain to people what it actually is, what they are about to see. We are coming at this from two different angles, really. The filmmakers are coming at this from a TV background, and I’m coming at it from a live spoken word background. We find ourselves meeting in the middle with this whole interactive thing....

“Tell me and I forget, teach me and I may remember, involve me and I learn.” Benjamin Franklin   We want to involve you in understanding our dramatically changing planet in a completely new way. Invited to submit to the Sundance, New Frontier’s Storytelling Lab, 2014



[...]
siobhan-o-flynn's insight:

Sounds Intriguing:


'We’re creating an interactive drama, one that you’re in because you are the news, this is about you. Climate change is going to effect all of us and your mobile will help tell this story. Our informants, world leading scientists and global experts will all be part of this living drama. Conspiracy theorists will intrude to make you question everything. Characters will play out the catastrophes we are all facing. The planet is 70% blue of which 40% is dead. The Arctic is melting and sea levels are rising fast. We’re running out of land, food and water yet world population is booming. Hurricanes, heatwaves, tsunamis, failed crops are coming harder and faster. This is your real world.

Mermology will be connected to your mobile so you can respond to real world, climate events. From your mobile you can live stream news, post photographic evidence, read tweets from characters, find clues on instagram, read leaked blogs from world leading scientists, receive vlogs from conspiracy theorists. You can push the plot, discover sub plots, see what you do know, learn what you don’t know, believe it, unbelieve it, deny it, face it, question it – live it....'

Virtual Roundtable: The Future of Interactive Documentary

Tom Perlmutter, Former Chairman of the National Film Board of Canada, is widely credited with transforming a somnolent traditional media organization into a global media powerhouse for the digital age. To Perlmutter, despite the disruption and havoc that the digital renaissance has wrought on old world notions of storytelling, the digital landscape is teeming with unimaginable possibilities..


This week's hangout will explore the future of interactive documentary, through the eyes of Perlmutter and a cast of fellow revolutionaries who have each had a hand in non-linear story-making. Joined by Sandra Gaudenzi, a leading "i-docs" academic and consultant; interactive practitioner and journalist, Dylan Young; Founder, SALTY Features and independent producer, Yael Melamede; and Soraya Murray of USCS's Film and Digital Media Department, our panel of experts will discuss how the web is changing the form of documentary filmmaking."

THE TOXIC BABY?

Recently TED published the talk “The Toxic Baby,” which was based on my feature length documentary of the same name. The film is a cinematic look at how chemicals in our day-to-day lives can affect the health and development of babies and children. My Kickstarter campaign is to turn the movie into the world's first interactive documentary app for the iPad.
