“Digital storytelling” agency Eastwood Media is cooking up something interesting on Facebook. Shades of Red 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 Life 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.
