Filmmakers in a Post-Film Landscape: A Conversation


Presented by StoryCode

 What happens when filmmakers go beyond film? In a conversation that foregoes “the sky is falling” predictions to engage relevant questions in an in-depth way, the discussion program Filmmakers in a Post-Film Landscape will explore the implications of storytelling in new ways. Filmmakers Craig Singer and Michael Monello have expanded their oeuvre into the world of interactive, multiplatform, omnichannel, and transmedia productions. Moderated by StoryCode cofounder Aina Abiodun, the conversation will examine the ways in which digital technology is changing storytelling and the medium of film.

About the speakers

Craig Singer, a director and producer of television, film, and theater, is now an innovator in the development of multiplatform entertainment properties. His latest project is Ollie Mongo, the story of a 16-year-old skateboarding zombie in post-apocalyptic Asbury Park, New Jersey. Ollie Mongo is being developed with Klasky Csupo, the creators of Rugrats. It is being developed as a graphic novel, a social experience, a video game, a TV series, and consumer products.

Mike Monello is the chief creative officer and cofounder of Campfire NYC, a marketing agency that focuses on storytelling to shape perceptions and brand preferences. He is intimately involved in every project at Campfire, and was a cocreator of The Blair Witch Project, a movie that changed the way marketers approach the Internet.

Moderator Aina Abiodun is a filmmaker, innovator, and cofounder of StoryCode, a community hub, lab, and creative consultancy for emerging and established cross-platform and immersive storytellers.
