Framestore, io9 Partner on Collaborative Storytelling Project

"Digital production company and Gawker website rally readers around concept art .

Framestore, a leading visual effects, animation and digital production company, has launched a collaborative storytelling project called an “exquisite corpse” in partnership with Gawker sci-fi site io9 .

An exquisite corpse is a storytelling method whereby the narrative is collectively assembled by a group of individuals. Each writer adds to the body of work by advancing the story where the last writer left off. In the Framestore-io9 collaboration, artists will participate in advancing the story as well as writers.

With the goal of enhancing reader engagement by creating dialog between writers and artists, io9 will showcase concept art developed by Framestore’s visual development department once every two weeks in a regular feature on the site called the “concept art writing prompt.” Readers will be encouraged to submit a short piece of fiction inspired by the artwork. Framestore will then create new works of art in response to the writing. In the end, the hope is to create a one-of-a-kind story that never could have existed without an ongoing dialog between writers and artists. "

The concepts look suitably epic, should be interesting to see how it turns out.

Ah... We did this all the time in Literature class.

Our activity back then was "Write the last chapter of 'The Odyssey' with each student writing one sentence."

The teacher wrote the first sentence: "Odysseus lands on the shores of Ithaca."

The second sentence we wrote ramped things up with: "In the distance, Odysseus could see a tsunami heading for Ithaca."

Yep.... Good times.

Framestore's art department kicks ass. This should be good.
