The StoryAlity K-Film: Part 1.
The StoryAlity K-Film: Part 1 i-doc (online interactive documentary) can be viewed online (free, obviously) here:
Q: What are K-Films ?
A: A `K-Film’ is a Korsakow (pronounced: `Kor-sa-kov’) Film – i.e. an online interactive film…
(In this case: it’s a short i-doc – or interactive documentary, i.e. The StoryAlity: Ep 1 K-Film is approx, 25-30 mins, depending on the path that you navigate through it, as you view it).
…and, K-Films are, officially, supercool:
And – for more info on Korsakow, an application invented by Florian Thalhofer, and developed by Matt Soar, David Reisch and others, visit: http://korsakow.org/
And also – I just want to say a very big thanks to Florian, Dave and Matt at Korsakow, for all their time, assistance and technical support… Massive props, and keep up the awesome work, team.
And I personally think K-Films are a brilliant new medium… (exactly as Florian says: “Linearity is overrated.“)
So – The StoryAlity K-Film: Ep 1 is composed of ten or so, short (around 2 mins, on average) segments, including:
…And, a few other short segments in there, as well…
And – the idea behind the film is, to convey the key points of StoryAlity, or, basically: an Introduction to the Theory.
Though, I must provide a warning: it is `Rated S’ (for Screenwriter).
As above, the whole online doco takes about 25-30 minutes, depending on the path you take through it… (and – if you get pulled away, or have to pause/quit halfway through, Korsakow actually remembers where you got up to… How cool is that..?)
(Nota Bene – StoryAlity: Ep 2 and 3 are now `in the works’… whenever I get time to complete them.)
And – a philosophical question – if my (ongoing) Doctoral thesis has:
1) a StoryAlity Theory Screenwriting Manual,
2) a StoryAlity K-Film i-doc,
3) a StoryAlity (i.e. Creative Practice Theory) Game Demo…
…is it a `Transmedia‘ Thesis..? 🙂
Here is another link to the i-doco, in case you don’t feel like scrolling back up to the top:
