May 10 2015 I was invited to Schæffergården to give feedback at the end of the StoryJam workshop to 11 brand new story concepts. The workshop ran over 2 days and was sponsored by the Danish Art Counsil. Participants were professional writers, illustrators, graphic artists, programmers and game developers.
The concepts included digital stories for tablets, smartphones and laptops and adressed both small children, tweens and adults and both learning and entertaining.
My personal favorites worked with themes like ‘how to be better at lying’, ‘how to remember the dead’, ‘how to find a date for grandpa’ and concepts that explored the idiomatics of interactive media using for example the gyroscope, accelerometer and GPS actively in the storytelling.
