The Digital Content Lab at the American Film Institute has been incubating digital entertainment programming and products for more than a decade and is always looking for new project ideas and team members. This showcase includes a project that deploys content to four platforms at once, yet maintains visual and thematic consistency; an educational campaign that runs during a punk rock tour; and an animated TV show that renders itself dynamically as you watch it on a game console.
The following projects will be presented:
1) DESIGN:E2 - a concept for deploying a TV series to multiple platforms and connecting its community of fans using locative media.
2) WARPED ROADIE - a contest that shows how an organization could use a live event as a platform for talking to fans before, during and after the event.
3) LEAVING THE GAME - a machinima TV pilot, developed for Xbox and PC, about an assassin on the run.
"Leaving the Game" was produced by Method's VP of Media & Entertainment John Gilles, in conjunction with the American Film Institute. The pilot was recently awarded the Best Technical Achievement award in the 2008 Machinima Filmfest. Unlike the 16 other categories, entrants cannot submit for Technical Achievement - the jury rewards it at their sole discretion to the film which best demonstrates technical innovation in machinima production.
