Wallimage CrossMedia : Digital Extension - You lead the investigation!

  • 19.10.2011

Approximately half of the sum allocated by the Walloon Region was reserved for the Digital promotion, including the six winners are known since the Namur FIFF. The other part is for Digital Extension. Here, there is no specific session during which producers must apply for the fund: each of the financing sessions organized by Wallimage or Wallimage/Bruxellimage is an opportunity to submit an application.

Two files proposed in September to Wallimage have been accepted by the board of directors. The first is the digital extension of Mirages, the documentary television diptych supported by the Wallimage/Bruxellimage mixed fund. This complement will be developed on the Net and will consist of a series of punctual interventions, and animations which will show the Net surfers that they take bladders for lanterns. Impossible to explain more without deflating the surprise that is the essence of the project… If this operation is a success, you will hear about it anyway… The service providers chosen here are Triptyk (web), Super Fluid (3D images), BizzDev (mobile application design) and Virtualis (virtual studio).

The other selected file is the one submitted by Caviar for The Artists (not to be confused with the film by Michel Hazanavicius), a European adventure that Wallimage/Bruxellimage had chosen to co-produce during its 8th session. . This crazy fiction has always been considered in a CrossMedia context. The one that has been proposed to us is quite staggering in its ambition, incredible in its imagination and pioneering in its professionalism. Too many superlatives? Not at all. We are at the heart of an avant-garde project, the kind of approach that resolutely advances things…

Without going into too much detail at this point, we can reveal that viewers anywhere in Europe (the episodes will be broadcast simultaneously in a number of countries) will be able to participate in the investigation and attempt to locate stolen paintings in European museums (this is the pitch of the series). Thanks to the Net, the virtual investigator will be able to travel in real parallel universes which will converge in fine towards the real world.
One of the main providers is recently Walloon since the huge company emakina, represented in Belgium by Brice Le Blévennec, has chosen Mons to develop this project, the first of a long list that should dynamize our CrossMedia landscape.

Audiovisual creation is evolving at high speed : Wallimage not only accompanies this change, but also encourages and dynamizes it. This CrossMedia line starts with a bang. In the best possible way…
