The Memory Machine-is a multi-media story about a nonverbal, autistic boy and his grandfather suffering from Alzheimer's who build a fantastical machine on the family farm in the hopes of bringing back lost memories. Using a digital device and Media-melt technology the story world comes to life literary and literarily, in your hands. Discover, through Anna's living story and Blue's nonverbal, imaginative, autistic perspective how a 1950's comic book revealed the mysterious secrets of their past and changed the collective dreams of their future. "The Memory Machine is a beautifully engrossing page-turner that warms your heart as you discover websites and comic books that spiral around it's core", said Alison Norrington, CEO & Founder, storycentral. The Memory machine is a fully integrated, multimedia experience that will combine multiple "narratives" simultaneously unfolding a story through the use of today's latest interactive ebooks. The layers of media and alternate forms of storytelling, such as animation and illustration, were not reactive but used as creative tools of expression in creating The Memory Machine world and characters. Created and told from two completely different perspectives The Memory Machine transforms multiple mediums into interactive, immersive experiences. The voice of 18 year old Anna is told using narrative, web-links and images while simultaneously layering in the nonverbal, autistic "voice" of Blue through his 230 page illustrated journal, animations and 8mm camera lens. With amplified storytelling that reaches across comic book, illustrated journal, embedded audio and video, images, hyperlinks to satellite websites that continue the story.
