American Soldier

This is a nicely crafted website showcasing effective multimedia storytelling. Videos, gorgeous photography, slideshows, text and print complete an engaging story following an American boy who enlists in the army and tours Iraq. I love the fact that technology is empowering us to create high-quality media-rich interactive online stories and entertainment and to share it with the world. Rock on.

The website is a simple website providing information about this creative group. I am highlighting this website for two reasons – to make the point that there are creative storytelling groups in the community who are able to contribute stories online and to mention that I am speaking about online storytelling at the festival this weekend. Cool!

READEO

Readeo

Even though this website doesn’t encourage user-generated-content (like the ABC Open project) I like how it creates a simple to use platform for people to read to each other and share their favourite stories. I also like how it encourages family members to interact. I hope the ABC Open project will produce platforms for like-minded people to interact on story topics they want to expand and explore.

I think this website is useful for ABC Open producers and journalists wanting to discuss how technology is shaping and effecting the industry relevant to multimedia and sharing stories online. It’s a good place to discuss what’s going on in the industry in a casual manner.

Movie Extra Webfest

Even though there is a money incentive attached to this project I believe many filmmakers who contribute to Movie Extra Webfest simply enjoy sharing their film idea with a captured audience. What incentives can ABC Open present to the community to encourage participation in the ABC Open project?
