storytellers, artists, developers and designers! Mobile/ Storytelling/ Interactive MEDIA — TRIBECA Hackathon *deadline 2/18
Tribeca Hacks <Mobile Challenge>
DEADLINE: February 18
Hackathons are an incredible opportunity to bring storytellers, artists, developers and designers together to create new kinds of work. Tribeca Film Institute has great experience in this area with their Tribeca Hacks series of story-focused Hackathons that have taken place all over the world.
In the past two years TFI and AT&T have hosted a Hackathon during the annual Tribeca Film Festival to great success. This year we are changing the format a little to introduce a competition element. Teams can enter their ideas online and the winning project will be awarded prize money to build a prototype to present at the 2015 Tribeca Film Festival.
The theme will be mobile storytelling that speaks to our environments and the spaces around us. How can a story be enhanced by the objects and people that surround you in the places that you go? Think smart homes and geo-locative apps. Add a dash of creative storytelling and you’ll get what we’re thinking! Your project must involve smartphones and/or tablets in some way. You can use other platforms and devices too (wearables, virtual reality devices, robots and other hardware) but you must include a smartphone or tablet as part of your storytelling project. Artists must apply with a brilliant idea and a team in place and must be able to fully develop and launch by the start of the Tribeca Film Festival, which will take place in New York from April 15-26, 2015.
Projects will be reviewed by the Tribeca Film Institute and selected by an Interactive Jury.
- The project has to have a narrative component
- The project has to integrate mobile technology
- The project has to interact with other devices
- The project must have a compelling user experience
- The project must have a geo-locative element
- Applications will be open between January 14, 2015 to February 18, 2015
- The winning team will be selected and notified by March 2, 2015
- Then the real work begins!
So I’m Part of the Winning Team, Now What?
- You will be prized with a sum of $10,000, which is to be used to create the project and cover labor costs
- You will be given mentorship in story development, user experience and technology integration to further support your creative work
- You’ll be responsible for meeting project milestones set by the Tribeca Film Institute team
