Portable stories

Wellington production company Gibson Group’s made-for-mobile drama series My Story has been purchased by French conglomerate Lagardère Group from ohm:tv, a Cologne-based developer and distributer of TV formats, programmes and mobile phone content. Produced by Gibson Group and created specifically for the smaller screens, on mobile phones and the Internet, My Story is a two-minute mystery drama series that follows a group of 18-year-old idealists – Clare, Kat, Vina and Isaac – who are just out of high school. My Story was launched in New Zealand in April 2007 and internationally in October 2007 at Cannes. Rights have also been sold to Austrian mobile Mobilkom. Ohm:tv’s director of digital media operator Sebastian Burkhardt said: “Apart from its innovative cross-platform concept, the strength of My Story lies in the fact that it has been created to production values formerly only associated with TV and film.”
