March 2013 Forum - Special Event with DCTV Featuring FutureMate and POV Digital

  • Mar 18, 2014 · 6:00 PM

From immersive theater phenomena "Sleep No More" to interactive documentaries like "Hollow," bold steps are being taken in socialization and storytelling that no filmmaker or artist of any kind can ignore. Join us and the team from DCTV for DCTV's Skillshare Social: Immersive Storytelling with StoryCode

Kicking off at 6pm, take part in a live immersive experience from the team at FUTUREMATE and learn about POV Digital's innovative support of the emerging form of interactive documentary. These experiences will be followed by a discussion with StoryCode co-founders Aina Abiodun and Mike Knowlton about how to use transmedia as a tool for your next project.

As always, enjoy an open bar with Brooklyn Brewery, scrumption nosh with Yeah Dawg, a raffle, and meet DCTV's staff and filmmaking community.


Now that the world has been devastated by the Cataclysm, finding that special someone has become harder than ever. But FutureMate is here to help! Your hosts Matt & Pam will take you through the FutureMate system and help you locate that special someone—who knows, you may even leave with a new mate! Come see all the benefits that await you for doing your part to rebuild our great nation. Both singles and citizens clinging to the vestiges of monogamy are welcome.

Spend 9 Months in Paradise
It’s true! With the Childbearing Vacation Credit, you too can leave the cities behind and escape to our island paradise! Imagine 9 months free from scavenging, marauders, gunfire, and sirens. A place where you can truly relax and sleep soundly—no lookout necessary. The trade winds will be the only thing disturbing this vacation! Fresh tropical fruits grow on the island, and superior rations are provided to all successful couples—even, yes, chocolate!*

Note: Admission to the FUTUREMATE performance is first-come and seating is limited so don't arrive late if you want to experience this amazing piece. 


POV Digital has supported innovation in the interactive documentary space for over 10 years. Recently they've held a series of Story Hackathons - events where traditional filmmakers are paired with technologists to create next generation interactive documentaries. POV Digital will present their work in this space and help show traditional filmmakers some of the new and exciting forms the documentary is taking in the digital age.


The FUTUREMATE live experience and POV Digital presentation will start promptly at 6:30pm and last until 7:45pm. Networking will follow in the main space downstairs at DCTV.

    This was a good evening. It was ambitious to do a FutureMate performance as part of a Meetup. You pulled it off. However, if you got in to FutureMate you missed the POV presentation and vice versa.

    It said that when I looked, and when I clicked on it, it put me on the waiting list! Hmmm…
