GI Research Associate Gada Jane is traveling to Estonia for a 10-week program at the Storytek accelerator and content creation hub. An article announcing her travels was published in the Waterloo Record.
Gada Jane has many hats. She's a filmmaker, screenwriter, and actor as well as research associate at the Games Institute. Jane and the creative start-up she co-founded, Velvet Icons Productions, will be traveling to Tallinn, Estonia for 10 weeks to develop their web-series entitled "La Boheme". They plan to begin shooting when they return to Kitchener-Waterloo next year.
"La Boheme" is a cross-genre story of an artist who drops her creative ambitions to make a reality TV show. Velvet Icons Productions will host the web series on YouTube and also develop an online store and Instagram network. Jane is quoted in the article saying, "We are developing multi-platform productions that place storytelling at the intersection of e-commerce, social media and lifestyle culture".
