Content generation that is engaging is a problem!!
Creating something that is enough to hold somebodies attention as well as incorporating interactivity and anonymity is very difficult!!
How about if people generated their own story?! Like the Arcade Fire Music Video where the viewer is meant to visualise themselves within the story, and likewise with Take this Lollipop , it was people putting themselves in the story that had the effect and kept them engaged.
This blog by script writer and blogger, Declan Dineen, reflects my interest in potentially position real people’s story in some kind of unified story dependant on place, time…
Additionally, I think augmented reality blurring with actually reality, by a story taking place within a known environment would hold audience attention. For example, if Bournemouth Uni was the setting, then BU students would be interested surely?
Ideas coming to mind:
– Crazes that go viral – how can I make a story go viral?
– How can I get people involved to share the story?
– Passing on a message/good deed/ section of the story? Almost like chinese whispers?
