Free Webinar on Mixed Reality Gaming by Legion M and Animal Repair Shop
Attend a Free Webinar on Mixed Reality Gaming by Legion M and Animal Repair Shop
Have you heard of Legion M, the first fan-owned entertainment company? If not, don’t worry, it’s been officially launched by Stan Lee and Steve Wozniak at last weekend’s Silicon Vally Comic Con.
Created by Paul Scanlan and Jeff Annison alongside Stoopied Buddy Stoodios, Meltdown Comics, 42 Entertainment and Animal Repair Shop, it is, in my subjective opinion, one of the most exciting project that has been announced recently.
First, because it offers a disruptive proposition: letting the fans (us) invest in it, and support the company with a small amount and a lot of enthusiasm. (And as we know when well leveraged, enthusiasm can overpower traditional marketing campaign)
Second, because the duo Susan Bonds/Alex Lieu is part of the project, and if you don’t know them, it’s kind-of normal as their job is to stay in the shadow while creating transmedia and immersive experiences that will make your heart beat much faster than usual for someone sober. (If you wonder how I know about that: weeks after I started this site, I ended up immersed in the unusual and thrilling marketing campaign David Fincher and 42E designed for The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, which had a profound impact and surprising ripple effects on me).
Third, because Legion M is already proving it’s not here to play by the old rules, offering two free webinar open to general public not only for people to meet the team and ask question, but also for a behind the scenes at the mixed reality studio Animal Repair Shop (created by the previously mentioned tandem Susan Bonds and Alex Lieu). This is pretty awesome and I hope you can see it.
The webinar, that was initially schedule for April 6 got post-poned to April 14, and you can still RSVP to join Legion M live as they “discuss the state of virtual reality, augmented reality, alternate reality and even a little actual reality! Ask questions live, and learn about the type of groundbreaking new projects Legion M could do with Animal Repair Shop”.
In all frankness, you might not care at all about Legion M or Animal Repair Shop, but if you care about storytelling, its evolution and where its heading, seizing this free learning opportunity might be a good move.
