‘Pip’s Island’, an innovative new interaction children’s entertainment brand, will sail into New York this fall for the projects global launch. After three years in the making, audiences will finally get the chance to experience the unique form of storytelling that follows the history, mythology and adventures of a cast of charismatic characters who have one foot in our world and the other planted on a mysterious, faraway island.
The brainchild of sister-and-brother partnership Rania and Rami Ajami,‘Pip’s Island’ is an interactive series of immersive events (or “expeditions”) that blend live actors, multi-sensorial environments, animation and a compelling narrative which the audience helps shape through quests and explorer challenges. The project is designed for children aged 4-12 but will no doubt see people of all ages eager to try out the innovative tech.
"We are responding to a growing demand from families in major cities across the world for high-quality, inspiring recreational opportunities by creating an original children's entertainment brand that is global in its reach and unique in its conception. ‘Pip’s Island’ is the future of kids' entertainment as it transcends digital and physical realms," Rami Ajami said.
"‘Pip’s Island’ is born from today's need for children to have multi-sensorial experiences that challenge their minds, spirits and bodies. It's so important for children to feel that they have control over events, not just by swiping on their iPads. ‘Pip’s Island’ facilitates this process by encouraging children to interact directly with actors and also empowers by allowing them to make decisions that determine the story's direction. Their journey doesn't end there either as they can continue to explore and enjoy ‘Pip’s Island’ has more stories unfold across the breadth of 21st century media," Rania Ajami said.
Along with the live experiences, the Ajamis are also planning to build a full transmedia brand that will encompass webseries, broadcast animated series, mobile apps, games and books to fully explore the rich story world using the fully developed visual language developed by the in-house animation team.
