Tell/Don’t Tell – Interactive Short Drama

4 minute dramatic cut down of Tell/Don’t Tell,

Tell/Don’t Tell was an 18 min choose your own adventure style interactive drama for Red Kite Learning and the Ministry of Justice.

Dave Brown is struggling to support his family. No one wants to hire an ex-offender. On the verge of being thrown out by his girlfriend and becoming estranged from his daughter, how will Dave handle the challenges of post prison life? 

In the full interactive version, viewers make Dave’s choices for him, and drive the plot. The project was innovative in its day.

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 more dramatic method has proved far more effective.
