Future of Storytelling

Here’s a longer video from The Creator’s Project (a Vice and Intel collaboration), about the Future of Storytelling work that the USC School of Cinematic Arts World Building Media Lab has been doing with my Leviathan series.

What interests me about this project is that it’s a form of extreme rpg/fan fiction. They’re taking the raw materials of the world of Leviathan and building it into a digital environment that’s both interactive and useful for telling extended stories, often with different characters, altered timelines, and crazy new beasties. For me, it fires the same brain cells as when you guys write fan fic, that sense that my and Keith’s world keeps echoing out there somewhere in other people’s brains, where those characters (and new ones) get to have more adventures.

So thanks to the students at USC and their sponsors, and to all you guys who write fan fic and generally let your imaginations roam.

Here’s my previous blogpost about the project, and the post on The Creator’s Project blog.

  2. The bad news is I didn’t get into Alpha. :(
    But the good news is that maybe we’ll get to go together next year, MidK! :)

  3. MY imagination has take Alek and Derryn into WWII, with their children in the Resistance in spite of parental dissuasion. :-) No fan fic yet, but maybe Scott will do it for me! Hint, hint! And then get that movie going!

  4. On a scale of one to Dalek, how awesome is this whole “Alpha” thing?

    P.S. What’s leviathan???
