6 actors. 6 countries. 1 text.
A crowdsourcing experiment part of the A Study on Character Development transmedia storytelling project.
All actors were contacted through email and social media, given the same text, and asked to film themselves giving their own renditions of it with any type of camera they had available (webcams, mobile phones, anything). These videos were then sent to me to be edited into a mashup, deconstructing their personal renditions to create a new collective one.
