Brilliant Digital Entertainment is a leading entertainment content producer, technology developer and tools provider.
BDE develops a 3D streaming format (B3D) and tools that enable the creation of interactive cartoons. The company was looking for writers to propose interactive movie concepts. BDE commissioned thequality.com to develop an interactive movie based on an original idea by thequality.com. The brief was to write with the technical constraints of the medium (real-time 3D animation, streaming audio, and mouse/keyboard input) in mind.
Working in conjunction with a BDE script editor, thequality.com submitted scene breakdowns and then several drafts of a linear (regular) feature film script. Once producer approval was obtained, thequality.com wrote the interactive scene breakdown, technical specification, and finally the full interactive screenplay.
thequality.com produced an online project workspace containing source illustrations, over 400 pages of screenplay, and a technical specification mapping out interactivity and the user interface. A 10-page flowchart mapped out the interactive feature-length story-line.
the end result
thequality.com delivered the conceptual framework and interactive screenplay for ten weeks in the head bin - a science-fiction adventure described as a cross between Brazil and Who Framed Roger Rabbit. Interactive functionality from thequality.com technical specification has since been incorporated into BDE's player software, the B3D Projector.
The project remains in development. Discussions are now underway with Brilliant Digital Entertainment to co-produce ten weeks in the head bin as a webisode series.
