We can now officially announce this bit of news… Conor and I have been selected to take part in the prestigious Sundance Institute’s New Frontiers Storytelling Lab! The lab, taking place later this month (Oct 23 – 28th), in Park City, UT, will allow us to develop Kill Shakespeare into other mediums, namely film, video games and other digital technology.
The official press release can be found here and see who some of the advisors and fellow participants are. It states this about the program:
“The New Frontier Story Lab will focus on supporting projects that have original stories and engage audiences in innovative ways, across multiple platforms. Organized as an immersive lab experience, activities will include individualized story sessions, conversations about key artistic, design and technology issues, and case study presentations. Drawing talent and expertise from all of Sundance Institute’s creative programs, including Feature Film, Documentary Film, and the Sundance Film Festival, the Lab has been planned under the supervision of Michelle Satter, Director of the Sundance Institute Feature Film Program.”
We’re really excited about the opportunity to work with some great creative advisers (including Oscar nominees, writers of blockbuster films, documentarians and game designers) as well as meet some other progressive storytellers.
We’ll include more about this as we get closer but wanted to share the news with you immediately!
