“Shades of Red” – Red Riding Hood as told on Facebook

A. Quinton — Mar. 12th 2012

“Digital storytelling” agency Eastwood Media is cooking up something interesting on Facebook. Shades of RedΒ is “a modern-day re-telling of Red Riding Hood”  – ho-hum – “that will be told through facebook” – wait, what?

Seven years ago, Werewolf’s Guide to LifeΒ author Ritch Duncan told a terrific werewolf story via “this is real” blog posts. That was linear story-telling from a single point of view, though. A multi-person story happening in real time on a social network like Facebook sounds much more complicated, and I’m really interested to see how it pans out.
