Mobile devices—particularly tablets—present exciting opportunities to create new forms of the novel. How can we take this great storytelling form from the familiar container of the book to the open frontier of the touch screen? In this presentation, writers, designers and developers will show examples of how these disciplines can work together to pair fictional elements like point of view, themes and tropes with interaction design to create forms of the novel that are both innovate and intuitive. Hear from speakers Andrew Lewellen, Senior Content Strategist at HUGE, who works to make content an integral and compelling component of companies’ digital experiences, Matt Kennedy, of 1K Studios, Samantha Gorman, professor of performance studies and digital literature at RISD, and artist Danny Cannizzaro. Matt Kennedy founded 1K Studios, which provides services including interface design, video production, interactive content development, and programming – creating enhanced digital products based on popular entertainment and media properties.
