From an early age, I was obsessed with media...
Nowadays I’m obsessed with interactive storytelling and media innovation. (Focusing on the AUDIENCE..!)
As I grew up, my obsession manifested itself into stories, initially as films and videos, but as digital technology became universal in the 90’s, I threw myself down the rabbit hole of interactive media in search of new ideas and opportunities.
His understanding of interactive storytelling is phenomenal. He can readily apply interactive storytelling as a way to engage modern audiences and increase effectiveness of any idea, development, campaign or product. Kudos!

Christopher Eccleston in one of my pop videos:
I spent 10 years experimenting and as the world got online, backed by my work in traditional “linear” media, I found new ways to engage modern audiences.
At the other end of this decade I won 2 Webby Awards (Oscars of the Internet) for my interactive film, Crimeface.
This led me to set up the company Bellyfeel
which led to work with the BBC, Terence Davies, Hurricane Films, Circle Economy, Northern Film and Media and many UK and European Universities.
Krishna and his company Bellyfeel are exciting to work with; flexible in their approach they implemented innovative solutions to meet the target audience. Bellyfeel’s input has been significant in helping our consortium of partners from UK, Italy and Austria achieve its goals.

Krishna’s Transmedia consultancy allowed us to get an additional 20% on top of the production budget for the feature film “Of Time And The City” which was then used to create engaging Transmedia content that reached hundreds of thousands of people.

I help raise funding. (£2.5 million to date for interactive projects.)
Krishna and Bellyfeel helped us in two ways: Firstly in defining TheRustyBucketKids.com Storyworld creatively. And secondly Krish wrote a report that argued the Multiplatform and Transmedia production case we wanted to present to funders for TheRustyBucketKids.com. The report was integrated into our business plan and that plan has helped us raise 50% of the $.5m budget we need in the last 21 days.
