Ford Motor Company has been quietly stepping into the transmedia arena as a producer, beginning in 2009 with the “Fiesta Moment” social media campaign, where 100 Ford Fiesta vehicles were given to non-professional spokespeople or marketers to use, drive and then comment on via Twitter and other social media outlets.
This panel-style blog post was spawned by my recent interest in the game Zombies, Run! As someone who is passionate about the Zombie genre, but not at all passionate about exercise, I was excited to find a fusion of mobile technology, storytelling, and real-world activity that would help gamify my healthy habits.
