Dina Foxx 2
consists of two 45 minute films which framed the event on TV, and an online week in between. There users can enjoy three additional formats: a simple web series for leanback users; a match-3 casual game for those who want to play, and a collection of interactive 360° videos for heavy investigators. You can watch the whole experience at dinafoxx.zdf.de or with the Dina Foxx-app for iOS or Android.
The first TV film introduces you to Dina and the drama of a rapidly spreading epidemic in Berlin. The outbreak begins when Dina’s brother Aaron falls into a coma after her birthday party and then a series of other victims begin to die or fall ill. At first doctors presume the outbreak to be drug-related but Dina increasingly suspects it might be related to a new genetically modified tomato that is supposed to be beneficial against cancer. When she realises that the general public need to be warned, a mysterious stranger intervenes to stop her…
In the subsequent online part users are presented with three options:
1. Who is the Stranger? – in the web series:
In seven parts (about 30 minutes all together) we follow Dina into an industrial cellar and enter a rough and dirty interrogation between Dina and a stranger who claims to be a friend of her father’s. The narrative is woven into the same timeline as the TV-plot. Watching the online series you lead you to see the second TV film with different eyes.
2. Fight the Epidemic! – in the casual game:
Kilian, the scientist, invites us to join his bio-hacking community to help discover (and fight) the virus. It’s an easily accessible and mobile match-3 game that takes you into the microscopic atmosphere of fluid cell-nuclei and biobricks (DNA building bricks).
3. Find the Truth! – in the 360° investigation:
The most interactive part of Dina Foxx comes with Jason’s own investigation. We can join him in his effort to find out the truth by visiting seven 360° scenes – part video, part illustration. Mobile users can change their perspective in the 360° sets by moving their smartphones or tablets. Each video contains vital clues that lead to a total of 62 riddles successively uncovering the whole truth.
The story concludes on TV with a showdown between political activists and the genfood company, and brother Aaron’s recovery. But when Dina wants to talk to him, he jumps into a black limousine and is driven away.
Jason pulls up, whispers something to Dina. What she hears is clearly disturbing. She breaks into a run, suggesting that story will yet continue…
Online-users already know what Jason has told her and can piece the puzzle together. TV-users can now go online and find out what really happened…
