Dina Foxx - Deadly Contact is a dramatic crime story that tackles relevant contemporary topics (functional food, epigenetic) and turns transmedia entertainment into a fluid experience: On-demand, broadcast, and multi-device (Website and App). A two-part TV movie, a seven-episode webseries, a casualgame, interactive 360-degree videos and around 30 hours of engagement all enable viewers to access a different reality within the second movie. At the end of the first TV movie, main character Dina Foxx is seen running away from a mysterious persecutor and viewers receive a clear call to action: go online, to 1st : find out who's chasing Dina (Webseries, woven into the plot of the second TV film), 2nd: help Kilian fight the epidemic (casualgame that is part of the story universe), and 3rd: join Jason in discovering the whole truth, by interactive 360-degree videos which contain vital clues. Each clue leads to a riddle that users must solve by finding fictitious websites, by scanning the movie and by employing their own deductive logic. If the viewer manages to solve all three online parts within one week, they will receive exclusive access to the movie before it is broadcast on TV.
