This year, the Interactive Narration Group will once again be led by the founders of Red Eyes Cool, Barbara Jonak and Florent Pallares. Participants can work on the idea of their choice and / or join the projects: “Welcome to Film Spring Open”, “Let’s Change the World” or “Super Trump”.

During the Film Spring Open Workshop, the interactive narration group want to work, inspire and get inspiration in the spirit of “artistic residency”. This group is open to all individual filmmakers who want to help in the different steps of creation or to the creative groups who want to make their own interactive story. You can help for one day, some days or the entire length of the project.

Another aspect of this group, will be to try to create the most ecological audiovisual production possible. The Red Eyes Cool have created the making of of “Make an interactive and ecological film in pandemic times” to give you some examples.

WELCOME TO FILM SPRING OPEN – INTERACTIVE DOCUMENTARY AND FICTION PROJECT

It is an interactive project allowing the viewer to meet different people of their choice in the Film Spring Open universe and/or discover some of their creations. The idea is to make funny short video capsules of a few minutes, which can be interactive themselves, in the form of an interview, a small report or documentary, a tutorial, a fiction and maybe even a mockumentary.

This year is the starting point of this project, which will be able to grow each year by adding video capsules on a website available online for free.

LET’S CHANGE THE WORLD – INTERACTIVE DOCUMENTARY PROJECT

It is an interactive documentary project about people who are trying to change the world on their own scale. The public will be able to meet them by selecting them by country or theme. Part of this project was started in France, at the University of Perpignan by the students of the professional license: “Information professions: journalism and press” course “Photojournalism, digital media and audiovisual images”.

You can find some documentaries made by the students of the University of Perpignan Via Domitia HERE.

The first season of “Let’s Change the World” will be launched at Film Spring Open Workshop in October 2022 in Krakow. It will be accessible for free on social networks.

SUPER TRAMP – INTERACTIVE FICTION PROJECT

It is an interactive fiction about an international reality television program called “Super Tramp”. The viewers have the ability to choose their own path through a story with a series multiple-choice questions, in the spirit of some movie as “Black Mirror: Bandersnatch” by David Slade.

The subject is a competition between some homeless chosen in the world in order to change their life, as the audience want. The audience can choose for example some homeless people from France, Mexico and Poland and then, choose what each homeless can become for example an artist, a politician, a sportsman etc.

A part of this project will be done also at Cabestany in France and Guanajuato/Leon in Mexico in 2023. A making of of the starting point of the project in Mexico is available HERE.

After the first editing will be done, Red Eyes Cool can post it on different social networks and propose to filmmakers around the world to create their own scenes in order to make some extension of this interactive movie.
