I was Interactive Producer for Windfall Films on this Wellcome Trust funded science-centre exhibit.
It uses documentary video to tell the stories of people whose lives have been affected by genetic conditions. Interactive sections then place the user ‘in the shoes’ of protagonists making potentially life altering decisions.
Other modules allow the user to play the role of a forensic investigator and to try speed dating with a genetic twist.
After being installed at several science centres, the exhibit has now moved online, where it is used by schools. You can explore the exhibit yourself at: www.chooseyourcharacter.co.uk
