UPDATE 12/20/2011 – Why Fiction and Reality Blurred? Why is Pseudonymous Free Speech Employed in Walker?
WALKER is a new “Social Benefit” TransMedia Entertainment Property produced by The Legacy Productions. We invite you to become a part of the experience in this rapidly expanding new genre of entertainment which combines narrative, significant social and environmental causes, with mobile interactivity and commerce. YOU , our audience is given the opportunity to affect real world changes: from the environment – to education – to health – to the economy … all by applying their unique abilities, talents, networks and passion as an active part of the story. Read further below.
In the fictional TransMedia StoryWorld, WALKER is a solo journalist … a SOJO … WHO JUMPS OUT OF HIS FICTIONAL WORLD AND IS NOW PARTICIPATING IN OURS. He’s alone in the world investigating stories which have global impacts environmentally, socially and economically. Many of the hidden puppetmasters behind WALKER want to “silence” him AND ANYONE WHO HELPS HIM. WALKER is not good for business … their business. WALKER develops and encourages a global movement for change driven by a series of webisode stories he begins and posts on-line. Blog entries provide further backstory. Fiction and reality are blurred. The audience becomes a part of the story and a participant in it. Clues are provided integrating augmented reality, SmartPhone capabilities and QR Codes. The audience participants have the ability to become a SOJO with WALKER and impact the outcome of this story … and the dialogue on the stories: Climate Hacking, NanoTech and Water Wars.
The WALKER story will be played out OVER ONE YEAR on disclosed and secret websites discovered by the participants as well as in graphic novels, on mobile devices, and at live meet-up events in Boston, Los Angeles, and London, and other cities world-wide.
ONE LONE SOJO NOW BECOMES MANY …
WALKER is patterned after other game-changing entertainment properties – blending narrative with mythology that blurs the lines between fiction and reality. WALKER compels the audience to become a part of the story with real world outcomes that actually mean something…
The World … Your World … Our World Depends on it!
