STORY

Notruf Deutschland is an interactive drama told across multiple platforms, which aims to provoke a public debate around the subject of reality TV. Notruf Deutschland reveals how reality shows actually work: framing the participants, manipulating content and deceiving the viewers. In its core is in fact a scripted reality show, which gradually exceeds all moral and social conventions. Notruf Deutschland blends reality and fiction in a puzzle the audience is invited to unravel: discover backstage material of the show, discuss the implications of such a format and eventually take action to stop it.

TECHNOLOGY

ACTIONSCRIPT 3
We built an in-house video player, supporting live rendering of pictures at specific preset timecodes.

FACEBOOK CONNECT
We connected the video player to facebook, importing selected photos from a user library.

FACE RECOGNITION
We created a custom face recognition engine, importing pictures from a user’s library with only one face visible. This made the experience more personal, avoiding obscure avatar profiles.

AFTER EFFECTS
We rendered the videos with green screen markers and metadata, which were used by the video player to render, position and animate user pictures.

PRESS

the notruf-deutschland experience is bizarre, clever and ever so slightly demented.
Facebook App kidnaps you, cuts you up, puts you in a sack. Thanks, weird German TV show.
