“@jacktorrancetrip - A story for the Edward Snowdens and Daniel Ellsbergs in all of us”

FNE Innovation 2018-06-13

ABOUT THE PROJECT
The moon landing is one of the greatest milestones in human history. What if it wasn’t real? Meet Jack Torrance, the man who made it all happen. 

@jacktorrancetrip is an interactive storytelling experience on Instagram that tells his story. It is one of the most complex narrative experiments on social media platforms and a great example how social media can be used to tell multilayered cinematic stories. 

Follow Jack’s adventure to the dark side of politics and manipulation and learn how surveillance technologies have changed since 1969. The story blends original NASA footage and unclassified FBI documents in an immersive experience. Truth? Lies? Find out for yourself at @jacktorrancetrip Trailer: https://vimeo.com/268490085 

The project is written and directed by Polish duo The Kissinger Twins (Dawid Marcinkowski and Katarzyna Kifert), award-winning director duo, and was inspired by a real-life event. During their holiday on American Samoa, The Kissinger Twins met Jack Torrance, a singular 80-year-old, who claimed that he was the mastermind behind NASA’s moon landing. "Jack finds mobile technology and social media as a threat to privacy, so telling his story via Instagram became a subversive choice. He was initially reluctant, but soon understood that we needed to use the most relevant tools of modern storytelling to amplify his message” 

The immersive soundtrack to the project has been composed by Polish musician and producer Andrzej Smolik.
