Why Kiss Kill Breaks New Ground in the Telling of ‘Story’

Kiss Kill is ground-breaking as a way of telling a story for the following reasons:

1) It’s a story told using multiple text types, not just prose narrative.
2) It is transmedia, incorporating a character blog, YouTube performance (How Do You define a Man?) and iTunes (Thought I Knew You), Facebook and Twitter @kisskilldigital
3) It is a story of relationship abuse where the abuser is the female and the victim is a 16 year old male.
4) Kiss Kill has permission to link with Headspace and Mensline Australia.
5) It is framed in philosophy which is only beginning to be taught in Australian Schools.
6) Humour is used as the voice of young males.

    Hi Tim,

    Thanks so much. I’d be really happy to share experiences with you. This is such a pioneering way of telling a story and takes a lot to get not only into the headspace of non-linear possibilitites for narrative but also the possibilities opening through chnaging technologies.

    Let’s keep in touch.

    Hi Jeni – Good luck with Kiss Kill. It sounds like a great narrative to introduce through transmedia. I look forward to checking it out. I’m hoping to release a narrative shortly along transmedia lines. It would be great to swap notes on best practise and pitfalls.
