Storytelling SxSW style and Shorts in Motion

Here’s a good summary article from Media Shift about SXSW storytelling, multiplatforms and collaborative contributions. Particularly apropos of our subject this coming week.

The Media Shift article references a project called Collapsus, a “transmedia… multiple-platform storytelling” project incorporating documentary elements, fictionalized elements and interactive opportunities, including mobile applications. It looks like the interactive side is not developed yet. Here’s the link to the trailer for Collapsus, and the website in progress.

Also, for those who weren’t around the tv/film biz when this was cutting-edge work, it’s worth taking a look at early (well-funded) experiments with short films for the small screen: Shorts in Motion

Ah. Story.
