Sundance Institute Presents New Frontier Story Lab

Written by: FFT Webmaster | October 12th, 2011

Later this month, the Sundance Institute will organize the New Frontier Story Lab, a new initiative to support artists and creators developing projects that explore the convergence of film and new media technologies. The six projects selected for the inaugural New Frontier Story Lab will be presented from October 23-28 at the Sundance Resort in Utah. The New Frontier Story Lab will focus on supporting projects that have original stories and engage audiences in innovative ways, across multiple platforms. Organized as an immersive lab experience, activities will include individualized story sessions, conversations about key artistic, design and technology issues, and case study presentations. Drawing talent and expertise from all of Sundance Institute’s creative programs, including Feature Film, Documentary Film, and the Sundance Film Festival, the Lab has been planned under the supervision of Michelle Satter, Director of the Sundance Institute Feature Film Program. Creative Advisors for the New Frontier Story Lab include Susan Bonds (42 Entertainment), Nick Fortugno (Playmatics), David Gale (MTVX), Michael Goldenberg (Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, Contact), Aaron Koblin (Google Data Arts Team), Richard LaGravenese (Water for Elephants, Oscar nominated for The Fisher King), Marti Noxon (Fright Night, “Buffy the Vampire Slayer”), Takaaki Okada (Condition ONE), Laura Poitras (The Oath, Flag Wars), Wesley Strick (True Believer, Cape Fear), Noland Walker (Citizen King) and Lance Weiler (Pandemic, The WorkBook Project).
