Journey from Feature Film to Internet Fiction
When Danish Film Producer Vibeke Windelov (Lars von Trier, Susanne Bier) and producing partner Stinna Lassen joined Cloud Chamber, an online fiction mystery, they had no idea of the journey they were embarking on.
The project is the first of its kind in Denmark, the two producers had to break down many doors and barriers in film and gaming to work in a field that neither industry - and nor financiers - called theirs.
They will talk about what it's like to get the game and film industry to not only talk but collaborate, about making a switch from producing blockbusters for Oscar-winning directors to venturing into fields without any obvious financiers and in Lassen's case, to come straight out of film school and meet an entirely different reality from what any kind of education can prepare you for.
Christian Fonnesbech is an Internet director, currently finishing up Cloud Chamber for launch this spring.
Cloud Chamber stars Jesper Christensen (James Bond), Sara Hjort and Gethin Anthony (Game of Thrones): A young astrophysicist discovers a signal from another world that has been kept secret for 20 years. She risks her sanity and betrays her father in order to save humanity from itself.
The format is a premium online mystery on a single site and app, fusing film, social and game into an emotional experience. Users pay to play.
Christian is partner and Creative Director at Investigate North and has directed more than 35 online projects and 3 online mysteries for entertainment, advertising and learning.
