Multipath explanation video

The video below gives a basic explanation of what Multipath storytelling is all about.
It was created by John Willanski (a founder of Films onthe Fly) and has been on the Linkr website for a while.

For a better understanding of Multipath film making have a look at the handout from the presentation we ran in December 2009.


Linkr Multipath workshop photos

The Linkr workshop was run by Films on the Fly in the first three weekends of February 2010.

With about 12 multipath films created the workshop was a great success, especially as it was the first large scale attempt of the Multipath Film making concept.
It should be mentioned that Kino Portable had previously attempted to run a similar workshop like event and it was actually at the 2009 Kino Kabaret that Michael Kubler and John Willanski were introduced to the concept by Fee Plumley (at the time called Non-Linear Narrative). However the Kino Portable attempt only created 2 or three films in total.

There are still some pickup shots to be organised and some editing and music post-production work being done before the Linkr workshop films can be put online, however as a teaser we have put up some photos from the event. If you prefer Facebook we have also uploaded the photos to our fan page.

Linkr – Multipath Film Making Workshop. Feb 2010

Reposted from the Linkr workshop page.


Do you have an interest in making ‘interactive’ films?
Have you ever wanted to revise or expand upon other peoples’ stories?
Would you like to learn how the internet can be used to create narratives?

Multipath film making is a new way of thinking about interacting with films which is similar to those old Choose your own Adventure books, except using online video and it allows people to contribute their own sections of the story.

Multipath film-making is a new and exciting way of thinking about interactive production which encourages community-based, collaborative storytelling. Think Choose Your Own Adventure, but with video!

The presentation will be beneficial to actors, directors, producers, scriptwriters – in fact, anyone interested in creating online content and/or making films in the 21st century.

To further encourage the Multipath interactive storytelling concept, a series of Linkr film-making workshops will be run at the MRC in early 2010, details of which will be posted to the mailing list.
