I'm sharing the first beta interactive multimedia test version of a short story, Gifts. I've integrated literary and cinematic elements (music score, ambient effects and sound effects) to this tale to expand and enhance the storytelling experience.
Feel free to leave comments regarding your experience to help fine-tune this new publishing platform made available by Booktrack™based in New Zealand.
The next step planned is to re-write Gifts as a short film script and to use the Booktrack™ platform to create a new soundtrack and sound effects for it. Do contact me if you're a screenwriter, music supervisor or composer who would like to explore collaborating with me on the script.
1) You MUST use the Google CHROME browser on a Mac or PC. There are three different apps available from the company Web site.
2) You can control synchronizing the reading & soundtrack speed of the story using the (+) and (- ) icons located at the bottom right of each page.
Gifts is a Booktrack™-sponsored production.
Imagine, innovate, play and create without fear of failure.
