I’m a sucker for clever promotions

March 19, 2012

In case you haven’t seen it, this video’s been making the rounds:

I love this kind of thing because it takes a story that’s definitely fantastical — futuristic science fiction — and brings it into our world, linking it with something that’s familiar — TED talks.  It blurs the lines, and makes the fantastic seem real, just for a minute or two.

I’m thinking of ways to do similar kinds of extras for the next Kitty release…

    Like the one Watts did for Blindsight, right?

    (There was such a long gap between when I saw that [super creepy] video, and when I read the book, that I didn’t realize it was actually Watt-related — I thought maybe he’d seen it and been inspired by it.)

    A nice presentation on the physics and biology of lycanthropic transformation would be cool :).

    You could always record a few clips from her show. Yeah, I’m going to try and not get my hopes up.

    Too late.

    That was pretty incredible. Very creative story and it does connect it with something from our world, which just makes it that much more realistic.

    Looking forward to seeing what you do with extras like this for the next Kitty book.

    Hope you are having a great, safe time traveling.
