Thanks to Jess, I discovered the amazing multimedia graphic novel, Inanimate Alice. Not only is it one of the best pieces of flash fiction I have ever seen, but it’s suitable for children!!!! Hallelujah!!!! The following review explains it better than I could:
‘Inanimate Alice’ is a series of unique kinetic experiences: part game, part novel, part movie that depicts the life of a girl growing up in the early years of the 21st century. Set across ten increasingly interactive episodes the story of games animator Alice is told using a combination of text, sound, music and images.
So far, 3 episodes are available, and they’re just breathtaking in aesthetics and design. Here are a couple more screenshots:
Go check it out!! It’s amazing!! The narrative is wonderful and did I mention that it is suitable for using in a classroom with kids!? Guess what’s going to be included in all of my post-grad courses and workshops with teachers from now on?
