What is interactive storytelling? Can it be put into use in Costa Rica? Why hasn't it been done so before? What is its impact on audiences? All fair questions, all questions that we wish to answer with the help of national and international speakers with vast experience in transmedia, web series, and interactive narrative experiences.
For our first meet up, StoryCode Costa Rica will feature two special guests:
MIKE KNOWLTON - MURMUR CO.
Mike is the founder of StoryCode and Murmur Co., and has worked for brands such as Bath & Body Works, Gucci, MoMA, Philosophy, Tiffany & Co, and Victoria's Secret. He will be presenting his interactive documentary "The Aatsinki Season".
JOSÉ PABLO GARCÍA - DELE VIAJE
José Pablo is the creator of "Dele Viaje", Costa Rica's first interactive web series. The show had great success locally, and José will do a post-mortem analyzing the experience, and how it could be improved for its second season (in preproduction).
March 18, 2014 - 6pm
From immersive theater phenomena "Sleep No More" to interactive documentaries like "Hollow," bold steps are being taken in socialization and storytelling that no filmmaker or artist of any kind can ignore. Join us and the team from DCTV for DCTV's Skillshare Social: Immersive Storytelling with StoryCode!
Kicking off at 6pm, take part in a live immersive experience and learn about POV Digital's innovative support of the emerging form of interactive documentary. These experiences will be followed by a discussion with StoryCode co-founders Aina Abiodun and Mike Knowlton about how to use transmedia as a tool for your next project.
As always, enjoy an open bar with Brooklyn Brewery, scrumption nosh with Yeah Dawg, a raffle, and meet DCTV's staff and filmmaking community.
