Michael Bay's 451 Media Group has announced its plans to produce printed graphic novels that feature digital video accompaniments for mobile and tablet devices. Variety reports that they will debut at this year's New York Comic Con with a sneak peek on Machinima.
Using Touchcode technology from T+ink, the ink used in the printing process will enable readers to use their touch-screen-enabled devices to unlock exclusive content.
Scott Rosenberg ("Con Air"), Skip Woods ("Wolverine"), George Pelecanos ("The Wire"), Mark Mallouk ("Black Mass"), Clay McLeod Chapman ("The Avengers") and Peter and Paul Williams (vfx for "Avatar," "The Avengers") are among the creators involved in the project.
"We discover great stories by way of our team of top-notch writers, screenwriters and authors and then work with our technology partners to turn those stories into truly immersive entertainment experiences," 451 Media CEO Doug Nunes shared.
Bay is best known for directing the "Transformers" films and "Armageddon." 451 has released a video shedding some new insight into its process:
