The Flow Factory is devoted to developing a method of Collaborative Transmedia Storytelling in order to use cognitive media to establish a sustainable model of economic distribution. Utilizing the platforms of blogs, video sharing, and social media, while cultivating cohesion throughout the Sarasota creative population, we aim to develop channels that will enable entrepreneurs throughout the community to utilize the power of cognitive surplus in a way which will unite the community and establish channels of financial flow to support Artistry, Business, Citizenry, and Charity. The revolution may not be televised, but it will be shared through social media.
The Flow Factory aims to align these resources thereby creating a means of symbiosis for each of the entities involved. By integrating media file-sharing, social media networking, and e-commerce, the platform creates a medium that serves Businesses as a point of marketing, Artists as a means of distribution, Charities as a fund-raising vehicle, and Citizens as a source of entertainment, education, attainment, and communication.
Our first project is developing the Go MAD Storytelling Challenge. If you are a documentarian that would like to explore how people are making a difference in the community around you, or if you would like to work on one of our scripted projects to show how differences can be made, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule an initial interview.
