Beckinfield, the worlds first Mass Participation web series, launched Beckinfield Live this week. It’s a 24 hour streaming video channel featuring the latest episodes and the best viewer created videos of the week.
Beckinfield Live is also a fun meeting place thanks to the live chat feature. You can chat with other Beckinfield viewers, Fans and Actors in real time while watching the show.
Beckinfield Live uses a proprietary video streaming technology to present a hand-picked assortment of Beckinfield videos in a television-like experience. The show schedule repeats every hour and new shows go up every week.
The Lean Back vs. the Lean Forward Experience
Beckinfield is a unique work of interactive fiction where viewers can watch and explore the story, the videos and the characters. Now beckinfield offers both the lean back and the lean forward experience (or, as we like to think of them, “munch” vs. “click”).
Beckinfield Live is a “lean back” experience, which means it is more like traditional TV watching – turn it on, lean back, and relax with a bag of chips. Exploring the interactive fiction of Beckinfield is a “lean forward” experience. This involves choosing story paths to explore, visiting Actor pages, and rating and commenting on videos. Click or munch. You choose.
The show is always on at theatrics.com/live, and is a great way to catch up on the sci-fi story, see some of the week’s video highlights, or start your own Beckinfield adventure.
