In this talk Majd Nassif, Vice President of Film and TV at Bazelevs Entertainment will take us through the work with creating original content for Snapchat with the Snap Original Dead of Night from 2019. Armed with only her phone, a teenage girl must escape a quarantined city full of zombies.
Shot in ScreenLife, exclusively from the point of view of the smartphone screen. Based on a Hooked story, a format that allows you to read stories in chat format. HOOKED allows readers to write their own chat stories, which can be shared with friends, or write a group story in what is called a “Fantasy Chat.”
Majd will also takes us into the new storytelling universe of Screen Reality. A new kind of storytelling is emerging alongside virtual and augmented reality—screen reality. This groundbreaking new format goes beyond the limits of a single image screen.
Majd has during his 4 years at the company worked innovatively alongside Timur Bekmambetov with everything from coming up with interactive storytelling techniques and creating digital vertical series to developing feature film and television series using existing high profile IP.
