MANCHESTER, UK - 05/03/2016 (PRESS RELEASE JET)
Bolton Storyworld, a transmedia thriller that was a collaboration between Bellyfeel and the University of Bolton, wins the Premier Award in the Learning on Screen Awards 2016.
The project was produced by Bolton University students. Bellyfeel, a transmedia production company, was on hand with guidance and consultancy throughout the project. The end result was “Bolton Storyworld—Codename: Winterhill,” a story that takes place entirely on an audience member’s smartphone and includes video, SMS, phone calls and websites. Audience members are dropped into the action as characters. Students are going missing and they might be next.
The Learning on Screen award is the only UK award for media production in teaching, learning and research. Bolton Storyworld was nominated for the Educational Multimedia Award. The winners were announced at a ceremony in London on 28th April.
“When we didn’t win in our category we thought the night was over for us,” Bellyfeel founder Krishna Stott said. “Then they picked Bolton Storyworld as the best project overall. We were delighted to win the Premier Award.”
One Bolton University student who took part in the project, before going on to be employed by Bellyfeel, Lee Robinson, was present to accept the award.
“There's over 100 University of Bolton students like me who can now put this award on their CV's when they're going out into the media industry applying for jobs,” Robinson said.
Bellyfeel helps organisations reach bigger audiences by pushing the boundaries of user experience and storytelling across all devices and media platforms.
