MOSAIC: Shaping the future of storytelling takes guts – and security
With today’s newest technology, tools and scalable infrastructure, filmmakers can now bring interactive storytelling to a mass audience. There are many ways of doing that, one of them being the MOSAIC by HBO and Steven Soderbergh.
MOSAIC is a murder mystery released in two forms: as a mobile app version (iOS & Android) and as a television drama. It focuses on the disappearance of a high-profile resident of picturesque Summit, Utah and the four-year effort by law-enforcement and civilians to discover the truth behind the crime. The app works like an interactive movie; while the user cannot affect the plot, they can choose from which perspective the same plot is viewed, and learn different facets of it. Users can also investigate on their own time background documents, emails, news clippings, voice mails, police reports, and the like in a "Discoveries" option.
