The Story

Transmedia narrative is a new and exciting form of storytelling, and what better subject matter is there than extraterrestrial life and close encounters? Don't answer that. I studied this form of storytelling as my final project as a Media and Film Studies major at Birmingham-Southern College, and that experience will hopefully help me make this series all it can be and more. Son of Somerset Files is shaping up to be an intriguing look at one woman's search for the truth - both in her family history as well as to what is out there. This webseries will follow Chloe's investigation through vlogs, tweets, Tumblr posts, and Instagram pictures, and everyone will be invited to come along on the bumpy ride!
