This campaign is simply brilliant. Take a look: Initiative Vermisste Kinder or Transmedia at its finest. | Diary of Traveling souls

Looks like I’ll be joining a panel at the New York Film Fest this Saturday night at 7pm to speak about transmedia activism and documentary films. If you are in town and interested in the subject, please stop by and say hello (while asking a question in the Q&A perhaps). The event is in the Elinor Bunin Munroe Film Center Amphitheater at 144 West 65th St, which is a good space for this type of event (seriously, it’s great for a conversation). Here’s the description from the festival (more panelists TBA): Session 2 of “Beyond the Screen: The Immersive Media Forum.” Through the last century documentaries have played a pivotal role informing the public on issues of social and global justice and have served as calls to action, mobilizing citizens and leaders.

Haiti Disaster Relief Update! Justin Finch-Fletchley and I have one more show – tonight in New York City – and we are thrilled to inform you that we have surpassed our original goal of raising $1,000 for disaster relief in Haiti. In fact, tonight’s show will most likely put us over $1,500 raised! Given the fact that most of our shows have been small house parties with 15 to 30 people in attendance, this accomplishment is astounding. We want to thank everyone who’s contributed to this effort and taken the time to learn about Haiti and to really care about what’s happening there.

The mysterious nature of the poster combined with the high profile of the target produced a tremendous amount of curiosity and netted 300,000-plus views. FOX News said the video was a fake.
