Transmedia Project

What They Don’t Tell You About Babies

Created for my Transmedia Writing course at Full Sail University, the goal of this project was to push the story world of my Comedy Horror short film script out into the real world. For this project, I created an in-character Twitter account, a YouTube video, email addresses with in-character auto responses, and a fictional character’s ridiculous conspiracy theory website written in-character, mistakes and all!

The password protected page “Storks, Babies, and You” in the site menu above is connected to this material as well. Check out what I came up with below and see if you can discover the password while learning the TRUTH about babies. Enjoy!

The Screenplay

What They Don’t Tell You About Babies is a Comedy Horror short film script about Connor and Megan, a pair of hubristic soon-to-be first-time parents, who attend a children’s birthday party, but when an unexpected guest arrives and confronts them, Connor and Megan struggle to accept that there’s a lot they don’t tell you about babies.

The Twitter

Told from the point of view of the Stork, this in-character Twitter account let me add a bit of “humanity” to the bird we see in the screenplay. It also let me use some terrible puns, and I am always okay with that.

The YouTube

A silly minute long video with a “homemade” look to add to the realism. It’s cheesy, sure, but cheese is delicious. The video itself is meant to make viewers laugh while also giving them goosebumps.

The Website

The website of fictional character and conspiracy theorist, Luther T., reveals the TRUTH about the stork menace. Made completely in-character, this site is purely for laughs. At least, that’s what the “higher-ups” told me to say.
