Immigrant Nation
Immersive Cinema Platform
Immigrant Nation is a new, interactive social enterprise. Its goal is to facilitate rich, cinematic storytelling among a diverse audience involved with American immigration - past, present, and future. In partnership with Murmur, Immigrant Nation is developing an interactive experience that helps users connect to their own story, and enable them to see the common threads between the stories of potential immigrants, new immigrants and longtime residents — making immigration personal, while putting immigration trends in historical context.

Theater of War
Mobile Audience Sentiment App

The Theater of War: Soldiers & Citizens Tour presents readings of ancient Greek dramas to military and civilian communities as a catalyst for powerful discussions about the visible and invisible wounds of war. Outside The Wire, the producer of Theater of War: Soldiers & Citizens Tour, asked Murmur to develop a web-based app that could be used to capture audience "sentiment" in real-time during the performance, as well as feedback afterwards. Designed to be streamlined and accessible by practically any smartphone, audience members are able to simply tap whenever a moment resonates positively or negatively. The app is a tool to help generate compassion and understanding between diverse audiences.

    WeWorks DC provided a very comfortable space for our event, and Mike Knowlton's presentations of "Immigrant Nation" and "Theater of War" from his work with Murmur was as entertaining as it was informative. Very noteworthy information. Thanks Mike! It was great to see some new faces in our Meetup community too. We hope you will join us again and bring a friend or two along next time. For those who missed the our last event you can view our Twitter hashtag #StoryCodeDC for highlights.
