The Next Interactive Film

Cadillac is a global brand. With an influence that spans across all continents. We want to highlight this and create a global and innovative film experience for the modern consumer.

Imagine seeing a map view of the world, with six blinking lights that are scattered throughout the map continents. Below the map, we have six video screens, and each one of them is following a character. At first the characters seems to be independent of each other, but eventually it’s clear that they all are interconnected. Each character has a detailed storyline independently, but at the same time they fit into a larger global script.

To highlight creativity and innovation, each of the characters films would be directed by a different high profile director. So each character’s film would have a very distinctive feel, and through these six films we’re giving the viewers a picture of what modern storytelling is today. At it's core this will be an exploratory experience to the user, they are given tools to explore these characters and see into their lives, and they can go about it anyway they want. But actually the user will be the seventh character. They will interact with the characters, pass along information between them, and even choose side’s at critical points. Through exploring they discover the personalities of the characters, their backstories, discussions and interactions. You can imagine it as an interactive version of “Rear Window” or “The Conversation” that spans across the whole world.

Here’s a quick visual mock-up of how it could feel to follow this story/experience unfold.

Additional Ideas As a user enters the site, the experience won't start from the beginning but it will be tied to the server clock. So each user will start off from a different point in the storyline, thus building a different image of what is going on. At a structural level our idea is inspired by an immersive theatre installation in New York City called "Sleep No More". Rather than being a linear experience, the play is built out of hour long loops. Since there are multiple story lines, the audience can move freely at their own pace, choosing where to go and what to see. Which makes everyone's experience unique.

Story Length The main thing to consider is that the story should be a loop. So if there are 6 characters, its really almost 7 stories; each of the 6 characters' and the main overarching story for how they all intertwine. This 7th one is what users will need to watch intimately to figure out. Our recommendation for the overall length of each characters' Â loop (their timeline) is approx. 4 mins, each with approx. 2 mins of dialogue/scenes with other characters, etc. And we have 6-8 characters. Then the total story line length would be approx. 20-30 mins, with 12-16 mins of scenes/dialogue, depending on how many characters. But the loop/timeline of each sub-storyline would always be the 4 mins.

The World Today We live in a cluttered world – every second 700 status updates are sent to Facebook, 600 Tweets are shared and 1 hour of content is uploaded. 66% of internet users watch video online.

"Brands are moving further away from direct advertising, whose metrics that are hard to calculate, and into original video content--content that is created not to sell but to engage. They tell a story and they create brand loyalty. The days of direct consumer advertising is dwindling, and the advent of marketing through storytelling has arrived. This will propel online video even more into the world of serious profits.”

Content Case Study Canon Beyond the Still It was the first ever and largest user-generated HD video contest in history, where photographers became filmmakers and we all saw beyond the still. Month after month, aspiring filmmakers were invited to pick up where the previous winning short film ended – on an evocative photograph. Contestants then reinterpreted that still, telling the story that lived beyond it in a short film of their own. Then, after the final chapter was created by Vincent Laforet and all the chapter winners, the collective film premiered at the Sundance Film Festival.

The Canon Beyond the Still HD Video contest on Vimeo received the following awards at the Cannes Lions in 2010: Gold for “Branded Content” Silver for “Promotions” Bronze for “Titanium/Integrated”

To conclude this one-of-a-kind and ground-breaking contest, the final collaborative project was premiered in its entirety at the Sundance Film Featival ‘11.
