Trans-media producer BeActive has announced its partnership with online story sharing community Movellas.
The partnership is another example of BeActive’s approach to story telling and has followed on from the recent use of Pinterest as a graphic novel for its Beat Girl story. Movellas' site functions to allow anyone to publish their own story and receive feedback from the online community. Each month, hundreds of thousands of stories are read on Movellas, last month passing the million mark, making it a huge platform for online publishing.
The novel, Beat Girl by Jasmina Kallay, will be the first BeActive ebook available via Movellas and will be free for Movellas users across the UK.
BeActive MD, Nuno Bernardo, has said “There are now so many different ways to tell a story across multiple platforms and we are always looking for new channels to reach people. It is great to partner with Movellas. They are a community dedicated to story telling and a perfect fit for what we do at BeActive. We are looking forward to seeing the contribution from the Movellas community; and who knows, maybe our next big project could come from a Movellas user’s submission”.
Jordan Philips of Movellas also added, “Our community is passionate about sharing stories and it is great to work with some one who has a history of cross platform story telling to such a high caliber. We are really looking forward to working with BeActive and seeing what will be created as a result of this project”.
A competition asking participant to enter stories on the Beat Girl site also went live on 9 July, and will run for six weeks.
