Target platforms: Web, Virtual Environments, Broadband TV, IPTV, Mobile

Project description: ‘Emergence’ is an innovative cross-platform work in which users are given the chance to collectively build their ideal human being. Once genetic engineering has perfected the manipulation of physical characteristics, it will turn its sights onto the perfection of personality. But what sort of character traits would we want an ideal human being to have? ‘Emergence’ gives users the opportunity to answer these questions by working together to create their own version of an ideal being. The interactive audio-visual theatre component of ‘Emergence’ will premiere at the Sydney Opera House in mid-2007 and then tour nationally. At the same time, users will also be able to build their ideal beings online, in virtual environments and through the broadband TV platform.

Double the Fist
Tagline: Fistworthy(adj): Brave, tough, suicidally, reckless or a combination of all three. The desire for fistworthiness is what drives the show’s host and contestants.
LAMP Lab: July 2006

LAMP IV Photo C Gleeson
Target platforms: Internet, mobile, games
Project description: Double The Fist is a high-octane special effects fuelled cross platform
comedy, experienced by weak and pathetic users around the world – via TV, Internet and any other mobile device that you can think of. This ironic celebration of lowbrow testosterone culture is dedicated to the self-improvement of millions of piss-weak punters around the globe, through the reckless endangerment of self and others. Steve Foxx and this team take weak everyday activities and transform them into Fistworthy challenges. Double the Fist is a global entity with a large fan base, aged between 15 and 35. They’re young, tech-savvy and desperate for more fistworthy content. We’re meeting their needs with an exciting expansion of the Fist brand into cross-media platforms, creating a space where they can engage with us and with each other inside the world of Fist.

AFTRS Media Lab
Tagline: “A collaborative media space where AFTRS interacts with the creative community”
LAMP Lab: July 2006

LAMP IV Photo C Gleeson
Target platforms: Online community; broadband PC; mobile
Project description: AFTRS Media Lab is where the walls of the school disappear. An online resource and collaborative space, it invites you to move from passive consumption to active production and participation.

  • As a repository of more than 30 years of the school’s productions, it is a valuable and fascinating source of the early works of many leading film, tv, radio and digital media makers, as well as the work of recent graduates. Users are invited to rate, tag and review.
  • It is a window into the school: somewhere to keep up with what is happening right now, through blogs and podcasts, calendars and forums – and to comment and send feedback
  • It is an educational resource: latest opinions, techniques and technology. Teaching activities of the school – seminars, interviews, exercises – are captured and uploaded.
  • It is a place to show your work and receive feedback; get involved in media projects and meet like-minded people – where individuals, both within and outside the school, use online tools to share ideas and collaborate on projects
  • It is where the school meets its audience and the audience becomes part of the school: online media projects, such as a serialised interactive drama that uses collaborative scripts and school production facilities; and rating and reviewing of student and community productions and scripts.
