Presentation

Overview

Collapsus is a unique project and the first production of its kind. It signals a new experience in transmedia storytelling, it combines interactivity, animation, fiction, and documentaries. This pioneering approach blends real documentary footage with mini-games and movie fragments, inviting you to choose your own perspective as the story unfolds. In Collapsus characters interact and make decisions to avoid further power blackouts. Users gain a broader perspective by listening to the experts, or observing the consequences for everyday people through the fictional story. The goal for this project is to reach a younger audience about the complex issues surrounding global energy politics.

Collapus is a collaboration with Dutch broadcaster VPRO. This presentation will feature live walk through the website.
