Wired Magazine has a fantastic article giving an excellent update on the LonelyGirl15 tale.
Over the past few months, LonelyGirl15 has changed from a simple “stepping stone” into Hollywood to a full-fledged international serial thriller. The story has taken on a darker theme, and it’s exciting to see this new medium fall into place. The article offers a new look at the conception of the series and gives us a look at why things are going how they are.
It’s amazing to see how the internet has so drastically changed entertainment – things are so much more interactive than they used to be. Users can simply suggest where they think the plot is going, and amazingly, the writers accommodate it. Even the sheer number of page views that they experienced moved LonelyGirl15 from a future film to a permanent web institution.
I’m definitely following LonelyGirl and its creators. This is a new media experiment that’s doing quite well for itself.
