From Thursday, Dec. 6 through Saturday, Dec. 8, Agnes Scott Graduate Studies’ Writing and Digital Communication students are “going live” with Found Prophecies, a project produced by a Transmedia Storytelling project team.
According to a recent press release, Found Prophecies is described as “an original digital storytelling experience” that interweaves the fictional stories of three women, fortune cookies, and fate on Instagram, Tumblr, and Twitter, in an interactive experience.
The project will only be interactive for the 48 hours from 11:11 p.m. on Dec. 6 through 11:11 p.m. on Dec. 8. This live experience will allow participants to:
– Follow the stories of the three main characters and watch how their stories begin to intersect and unfold with each fortune cookie fortune
– Engage in the story by receiving actual fortune cookie fortunes in real time
– Interact with the individual characters by responding to posts, tweets, and blog entries
– Take part in the #LiveTheCookieChallenge, where they crack open a fortune cookie (in person or online), get their fortune, and submit how they’re going to live the fortune in their real lives
“Our goal is to put the audience at the very center of these stories, so they can see and experience the stories and characters from the inside,” Found Prophecies project team member and Writing and Digital Communication student Cara Gluck said in a recent press release. “But for this to work, we need people. Consider this your invitation to the party.”
