Story Code SF #2: Douglas Gayeton

Douglas Gayeton, director, photographer, and pioneer in interactive storytelling will be on stage for StoryCodeSF #2. Douglas has been working on interactive filmmaking for 22 years. In 1992 he directed the documentary film “Tomorrow". His vision for Interactive television seemed heretical at the time : it actually proposed that viewers would become their own television channels. When the Internet appeared a few years later the idea became commonplace. 

In 1995, he directed the interactive film Johnny Mnemonic, written with William Gibson and featuring the voice of Isaac Hayes and music by Mark Mothersbaugh of Devo. For this storycode Douglas will talk about his 2007 machinima virtual world documentary Molotov Alva and His Search for the Creator (HBO) and his current project The Lexicon of Sustainability, which is a short film series with PBS, a book, and and art world phenomenon featuring hundreds of crowd-sourced pop up shows across the USA. 

In these projects Douglas makes use of audience-created media to complete the world and interactive mission of the stories he tells. Douglas will explain his creative approach, which is unique in its level of superb craftsmanship mixed with an openness to audience contributions and co-creation. 

Schedule: 6:30 doors, 7-8pm presentation + Q&A, 8-8:30 schmooze.

Cost: Free, suggested donation $10
