Inside David Cronenberg's Head with Lance Weiler

  • Apr 15, 2014 · 7:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Join us for a very rare inside look at a collaboration between the creative technologist and director Lance Weiler and one of the most fascinating sci-fi minds in film, David Cronenberg.

A pioneer in immersive storytelling, Lance Weiler stepped into yet another frontier as Creative Director on the Body/Mind/Change project when he combined data, storytelling and the "internet of things" to create a one-of-a-kind fictional experience based on biotechnology which appeared in Cronenberg's work.  

It's a play on the quantified self and an experiment in data-generated objects and “It plays into the whole data movement and our obsession with it and the narcissistic qualities of it.

    A fascinating presentation that really took you inside the making of TIFF's immersive Cronenberg experience. Thanks for sharing, Lance. This was StoryCode at its best.

    Thoroughly enjoyed my first StoryCode event tonight. Found Lance Weiler’s description of how he created the BodyMindChange Artificial Reality Game for David Cronenberg enthralling. Anyone remember what came between “Edit” and “Ideation” and “Testing”? Thought you might enjoy some of the vines I created to remember the occasion: https://vine.co/v/MJEMMwgw0O2 https://vine.co/v/MJEMOWr5pEq https://vine.co/v/MJEMOtFKb3x
    Will definitely be back.

    I see that a couple have dropped, but attendee number hasn't gone back up. Any chance I could claim one of those last seats? (Is the wait list "automatic"? or is it manual?)
