The Real Game! How Documentaries and games can boost their potential

Thursday, 30 October, 13 - 15 h
Zeitgeschichtliches Forum Leipzig

After beginning to explore the possibilities of transmedia, documentary filmmakers have started to encounter the gaming world.

 

  • What does this development offer in terms of new alliances, financing and audience outreach?
  • Where are the challenges and risks?

 

Two case studies will put light on these questions:

 

Lise Saxtrup and Trine Laier (Klasse Film) present Cosmic Top Secret, an autobiographical documentary game on the amazing true story of T’s journey into her family’s and her country’s secret past. It is a playable documentary with puzzles, mini games and webisodes produced for touch platforms and the Web.

 

Georg Tschurtschenthaler and Onno Ehlers (Gebrueder Beetz) will introduce The Vikings, a cross media experience, that gives new and compelling insights into the Viking‘s culture. It uses multiple platforms to address audiences of different ages and inspire them through history in a playful and engaging way. It combines a two-part docudrama, an online game for children, and an exhibition app.
