That last 2% takes a tremendous amount of time and resources just to get that to a level that you are satisfied with. We saw it on VGHS for all three seasons. It’s very easy to look at that and say it’s not worth it, but in the end, it is absolutely worth it....hmmmm.

Analyse fouillée des mécanismes du storytelling à l'oeuvre dans ce podcast-feuilleton qui rassemble plus d'1,5 million d'auditeur chaque semaine à la radio.

La storytelleuse et productrice, Sarah Koenig s'est détourné des codes classiques de narration anglo-saxonne, en créant une fiction interactive avec un personnage de narrateur. L'originalité du récit est que l'auteur elle-même n'en connaît pas l'issue. Donc aucun risque de spoiler, le suspense reste intact.

"Ryan Lewis, the producer and co-creator of the Crackle original thriller series "Chosen" starring Milo Ventimiglia, explains how they made a lean action drama for a digital world more used to comedy and short form."

Henrik Safegaard - Cloneartist's curator insight, December 17, 2013 4:33 AM

Ryan Lewis is one of the co-creators and producers of "Chosen," an original series starring Milo Ventimiglia that airs exclusively in the U.S. on the streaming site Crackle. The show, which is written and directed by Ben Ketai, is a rarity in the digital space outside of Netflix, where comedy and short form still rule the day. "Chosen" is an action series made up of six half-hour episodes that take place at a breakneck pace, with Ventimiglia's character plunged into a mysterious kill-or-be-killed game.
