We’re proud, delighted and honoured to announce our latest project, for Film4. The press release follows – as we build up to launch on December 1st, we’ll be writing about it in earnest. If you’d like a sneak preview, drop us a line in the comments!
Film4 has commissioned a unique and innovative multiplatform experience to support the release of Carol Morley’s feature film Dreams of a Life.
Dreams of a Life, which is co-produced and co-financed by Film4, movingly pieces together the true story of thirty-eight year old Joyce Vincent, whose skeleton was discovered in her bedsit three years after she had died. The accompanying digital commission, www.dreamsofyourlife.com, (please note: site launches December 1st) has been developed by interactive agency Hide&Seek, as a thought-provoking and immersive experience which engages users in the themes explored by the film.
Award-winning writer A.L. Kennedy has crafted the absorbing and sometimes unnerving narrative, which prompts responses to questions on society, friendship, love and loneliness. This is played against the backdrop of beautiful and haunting time-lapse imagery, created by photographer Lottie Davies.
The launch of www.dreamsofyourlife.com will also be supported by a mobile touring installation, allowing audiences to interact with the experience on iPads at selected venues in the cities where the film is playing.
www.dreamsofyourlife.com, commissioned by Hilary Perkins, Channel 4’s Multiplatform Commissioning Editor for Drama and Film, launches on 1st December 2011. Dreams of a Life is released in selected cinemas on 16th December.
