I like to tell stories around the digital campfire and I use any media necessary to do so. As the founder and CCO of CATMONKEY www.thecatmonkey.com, a digital storytelling studio, I have had some amazing opportunities to create my own stories. As CCO I wear multiple hats such as artist, writer, creative director and producer.

Currently at Catmonkey studios, we are producing a full spectrum narrative, called the Serpent Seed. The Serpent Seed is an evolving story that is told across multiple media platforms and is designed to exponentially grow with little to no repetition. Through Heavy Metal Magazine's first online comic book series, GATES, we launched the Serpent Seed in 2011 in graphic novel style format available for free online, here at dA and at this website www.gatesthecomic.com

www.theserpentseed.com

The Serpent Seed series has evolved into motion book format on Madefire, continuing the story of Gates and his ancestors. The Serpent Seed is the first Transmedia series created for the Madefire motion book platform and is stylistically unique in that it is designed to be more of a cinematic experience than a traditional comic book.

In addition to the Madefire series, the Serpent Seed will be living and breathing all over the internet on websites as well as extending to different social media platforms like deviantART, twitter, youtube and more.

In addition to the Serpent Seed, I have worked on franchises such as the The Simpsons, X-Men Days of Future Past, SyFy's Defiance, Darksiders 2, Ninja Turtles, Mr. Peabody and Sherman, the NFL and many more.

I am also the Managing Director of Transmedia Los Angeles, one of the United States' largest multiplatform storytelling organizations. We hold monthly meetups and more in Los Angeles. In 2013 I will be launching an Experimental Storytelling Lab called Prototype, within Transmedia LA. Please check us out and us know if you'd like to participate.

 the LIONHAWK inside his meditation- Serpent Seed by HalHefnerART
YOU are hereby invited to an exciting evening of drink, song, and thought in the “high tech, low life,” realm of the CYBERPUNK—a world beyond the flesh, celebrating the future and the UNTHINKABLE COMPLEXITY of human potential.

Produced by Transmedia LA, in cooperation with Catmonkey studios, Unthinkable Complexity is a real-world, immersive, cyberpunk event taking place in Los Angeles on May 24. The event will be held at Wyrd Con 5 and sponsored in part by Digital LA. 

As the age of the cyberpunk dawns upon society, Unthinkable Complexity celebrates the future of humanity through an experiential event that will engage participants with music, virtual reality technology, art, performance and more. This event is the first of its kind to celebrate the philosophy of the Los Angeles cyberpunk community.

Attendees are asked to dress in cyberpunk-inspired attire. Cosplay is welcomed, but not required.

The name, “unthinkable complexity” is inspired by a passage from William Gibson’s acclaimed cyberpunk novel, Neuromancer, and describes the mind boggling possibilities the future holds for the human race.

Unthinkable Complexity will purposefully blend real-world, fictional and non-fictional elements in the form of art, events, information and commentary, across multiple media in order to convey its story about the future.

Virtual reality experiences will be provided by Outerbody Labs, in addition to what has been hailed as one of the Oculus Rift’s best launch titles, Darknet.

Music will be provided by DJ Amanda Jones, known for spinning Alternative music in many of Hollywood’s premiere nightclubs, including residencies at Bar Sinister, Das Bunker, Malediction Society, and The Church Dallas. Model, actress and cosplayer Victoria Paege will also make a special appearance.

Unthinkable Complexity is an exploration in experiential storytelling and attendees will have the unique opportunity to become part of a story to be produced by Catmonkey after the conclusion of the event. Video content and other artistic elements used and recorded at Unthinkable Complexity will belong to a larger narrative about the future, that will use more than one media platform to tell the story.

Discount tickets to the event, including a one week sale of “buy one get one free” beginning May 1 until May 8, can be found at igg.me/at/cyberpunkevent.

A limited number of free tickets are being given away on the Unthinkable Complexity Facebook page: www.facebook.com/cyberpunkeven…
