EIGHT TEAMS TAKE THEIR STORIES TO NEW DOMAINS

Eight storytelling teams have been selected to take part in the LAMP: Story of the Future Residential Lab, a five-day program to develop digital content projects.

The LAMP: Story of the Future Residential Lab, to be held at Freycinet in Tasmania between 20 and 25 May, will develop digital media projects for a range of internet, mobile, gaming and screen-based platforms.

The eight project teams will be mentored by local and international experts in new media – such as UK cross-platform director Paul Bennun, Canadian creative developer and writer Tony Walsh and Australian creative producer Jackie Turnure.

The successful teams are Tell Tales (NSW, led by Bernard Cohen), Thursday Fictions (NSW, led by Richard James Allen), p.u.l.s.e. (NSW, led by Megan Heyward), Get Carla (NSW, led by John Trefry), Killer Gene (VIC, led by Sonya Pemberton), Mondo Froggo (TAS, led by Jon Kudelka), Captive (TAS, led by Andy Wilson) and The Parcel (TAS, led by Belinda Bradley).

‘The response to the call for submissions was overwhelming, with the final eight being selected from a field of nearly 50 extremely strong applications,’ said LAMP director Gary Hayes.

The LAMP: Story of the Future Residential Lab is part of The Story of the Future, a strategic initiative of the Australia Council for the Arts in partnership with the Australian Film, Television and Radio School. The Lab is also supported by Screen Tasmania.

‘The Lab aims to build on the success of the initiative so far in helping writers to recognise and take advantage of the growing demand for compelling storytelling that sits at the heart of emerging digital media,’ said Josie Emery, director of literature at the Australia Council.
