O2 Stories - a collaborative photography based storytelling project
I've just received a notification email from Matt M. from NixonMcInnes, they have launched this interesting project for O2:
"It lends itself very well to mobile phone photography. We’ve commissioned narrative engineer Alexis Kennedy, of Failbetter Games, to write two stories, inspired by photos taken by the public. One story is a journey in sunlight, a happy tale of a far off land, while the other is a dark and hard-boiled thriller, set in shadows. Each tale begins with a single picture and from there, it’s up to the audience how the stories twist and turn over the next eleven chapters."
To become part of the story, you have to do is:
- Read the stories
- Take a photo that they think could tell the next part of either story
- Tweet the picture using twitpic, yfrog, plixi, or twitgoo with the hashtag for the story they want to tell: #o2sunlight, or #o2shadows
Every Monday, Wednesday and Friday evening, our author will choose a photo that inspires them to write the next chapter for each story. If your picture is chosen, your will win a printed book of the complete story, featuring your photo.
So guys, if you are feeling inspired, jump onto O2 Stories website and upload your image and see how the stories continues!Tweet
