Tell/Don't Tell. 4 min cut down
4 minute dramatic cut down of Tell/Don't Tell, an 18 min choose your own adventure style interactive drama for Red Kite Learning. Dave Brown is struggling to support his family. No one wants to hire an ex-offender.
The project is used on an interactive intranet system in the UK Prisons Service, to give an insight into the trials of returning to regular life and finding work. Viewers make Dave's choices for him, and drive the plot.
Red Kite Learning had originally wanted a simple informative video, which I wrote a script for. I also offered them this interactive drama as a more engaging way to communicate the same messages. This method has proved far more effective as people watch it several times over to see the outcome of different choices.
This version has the interactivity stripped out and is a dramatic cut down.
