Indie Filmmaker New Platform Alert: "Beat Girl" Uses Pinterest to Tell a Story that Includes Video and More

Faithful readers of this blog may recall that I've previously written about how filmmakers might use Pinterest - the content sharing service that allows members to "pin" images, videos and other objects to their pinboard - to tell their stories online.

Apparently, I wasn't alone in recognizing the potential of Pinterest as a 21st century platform... the London based production company, beActive, has just launched a Web series called Beat Girl on Pinterest. The narrative, based on a novel by Jasmina Kallay, unfolds on 145 pins containing both videos and still images. Beat Girl tells the story of a young DJ, who, after her mother’s death, turns to music to make some sense out of life.

As reported in a June 21st, 2012 post to SocialTimes, Beat Girl's creators uploaded the videos onto YouTube and pinned them on Pinterest. They also posted photographs and other images to Pinterest.
