TRIALLING NEW INTERACTIVE FORMATS
Following on from the success of Spooks Spy Academy, created for season two of Spooks, the BBC commissioned Preloaded to develop a new interactive narrative for the show’s third series. The new site was designed to appeal to its predominantly male teenage audience, offering a fresh yet believable snapshot of the world of MI5, whilst being very different from the previous execution.
The experience is set at the centre of MI5’s counter-terrorism operations, the G.R.I.D. To ensure continuity with the show, the location was modelled in 3D using the set itself as reference, setting the scene and atmosphere appropriately. Actor Peter Firth reprised his role as Harry Pearce, MI5’s Head of Operations, for whom Preloaded wrote and shot a branching script suitable for the narrative we had devised speciﬁcally for the interactive story arc.
