Createasphere announced the addition of a transmedia keynote by the founders of Emmy award-winning Fourth Wall Studios at its Fall Entertainment Technology Expo (ETE) taking place Nov. 7-8 at the Burbank Marriott in Los Angeles. Fourth Wall Studios’ Jim Stewartson, chief executive officer and co-founder, and Elan Lee, chief creative officer and co-founder will premiere one of the studios’ latest interactive programs that exemplifies the power of multi-screen experiences. The keynote will take place Nov. 7 at 1:30 p.m.
At the ETE, Stewartson and Lee will also discuss the development of its innovative RIDES.tv platform. Joining them is Sean Stewart, head writer and co-founder; Steve Peters, VP of experience design; Jackie Turner, head of production, and Zach Schiff-Abrams, executive producer.
Fourth Wall Studios develops, distributes and markets content that crosses the traditional barrier between audience and onscreen action, resulting in entertainment experiences that are more connected, immersive and real. Founded in 2007 by Stewartson, Lee and Stewart, the Culver City, Calif.-based company develops a wide range of interactive entertainment properties designed for RIDES.tv, their proprietary entertainment platform for delivering content to multiple screens via web browsers, smartphones and tablets.
Fourth Wall’s first major series for RIDES, Dirty Work, recently won a Primetime Emmy award for outstanding creative achievement in interactive media: original interactive television programming. Other credits include Claire, the Dark Wall anthology, Home: A Ghost Story, Whispers, The Swarming and Flare. The studio is also actively engaged with partners to create and develop more projects for RIDES.tv.
Createsphere’s Entertainment Technology Expo will feature trend-setting sessions, demonstrations, a full exhibition area, networking opportunities and education. Additional keynote conversations slated include high-profile artists and hands-on demonstrations of on-set experiences and tools.
