I've only recently had the pleasure of meeting Caitlin Burns, who is a key part of the Starlight Runner transmedia crew and a feminist after my own heart. I could tell you she's super-creative and lots of fun to hang around with, but I don't need to. I just need to tell you the name of her summer project and you will know.
Jurassic Park Slope, you guys. The movie. I am not even kidding.
This epic adventure is going to go heavy on participatory collaboration and crowdsourcing, so if you're in the metro New York area, reserve your Saturday, July 17, to head into Brooklyn. From the JPS official announcement:
When Dinosaurs Roamed the Burg...
July 17, 2010, Location TBA, 1pm
Dress up like a dinosaur and congregate with you Cretaceous Brethren in searching for the finest watering hole in Williamsburg!
The first in a series of parties and events to support Jurassic Park Slope a transmedia experience, When Dinosaurs Roamed the Burg is part film shoot, part normal day in the burg, part party.
Check out the complete announcement for more info on what to wear, what to bring, how to act, and more. If you don't think that's going to be the best time ever, I... I don't even know what to say to you. Because this is pure, unadulterated awesome, my friends.
