Red Branch Heroes

Red Branch Heroes is a highly charged multiplatform story about life in Northern Ireland; where the celebrity obsessed digital public of today meets the myth and legend of yesteryear in a search for a special person. A hero.

Using the backdrop of a TV reality show that is searching to find a new Cuchulain, a modern champion of Northern Ireland, Red Branch Heroes was an interactive social reality experiment that took place in 2015.

In a controlled online storytelling environment we engaged the audience as judges within a TV reality setting. By using their hopes, fears, beliefs and inclinations as story decisions we played out the story and the show in a hyper responsive scenario that used storytelling to build social cohesion.
