Ok, I admit it. I’m a bit of a nerd. I used to LOVE choose-your-own-adventure books as a kid. Nothing was cooler to me than the idea that I could control the narrative. (Admittedly, I also cheated and flipped ahead to make sure my decisions weren’t going to lead to the imminent death of my favorite characters. Sigh, if only we could get those sneak peeks in real life, to see how our decisions will play out!)
Well, I don’t know if choose-your-own-adventure books are now considered passe, but in this digital age, what’s the next best thing? Choose-your-own-adventure VIDEO!
So when Adam Larsen told me he was making a choose-your-own-adventure Lego Batman movie, I was all in. I mean, first of all, Lego, YES, Batman, YES, and choose-your-own-adventure, YES! (Right now I’m slated to play Barbara Gordon, Commissioner Gordon’s wife! How much fun is that?!) Viewers will make decisions at the end of each scene that will change the storyline.
The project could use a little help to get off the ground, though…so if you or anyone you know wants to help fund a super fun indie project, please consider making a small donation at https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/lego-batman-movie-too-choose-batman-s-adventure-video-animation#/.
