Join us for a very special StoryCode Singapore meetup, and be part of a unique transmedia project in progress! Experience hands-on story prototyping and lean digital/social media publishing, as you create your own short comic strip and publish this digitally during this one-session workshop.
For one evening we will team up with local writer Don Bosco (www.SuperCoolBooks.com) and generate your(!) original episodes based on his open-source comic tale universe THE LEGEND OF THE CARDBOARD HEROES. Participants will be guided to create your own micro stories and share these over social media.
What is the CAPTAIN CARDBOARD story all about?
Rooted in the THE LEGEND OF THE CARDBOARD HEROES story universe, CAPTAIN CARDBOARD is about how two kids, Cindy and Faz, meet an old man who used to fight crime in 1960s Singapore as a cardboard-clad superhero. They try to help him revive his crime-fighting career, only to find themselves caught in one crazy situation after another.
What will we code during the meetup?
This story prototyping workshop is the first one organised by StoryCode SG to encourage collaborative transmedia development. Participants will use a Story Design Template to quickly develop their own episodes within the story universe extension via comic strips or cardboard figures and publish these via social media. Story-coding can be done with either one or both methods. To promote the eco-conscious theme, participants will use recycled cardboard materials to make their own story art.
All stories, content and creative hacks will be documented and published to the project’s web page and other online channels.
