Posted: May 24, 2012 VERDICT CASE FEATURED IN HOCKEY BLOG IN CANADA
Source: Hockey Blog In Canada
The following article about a current case on the interactive webseries, Verdict, created by Tammy Marlowe Johnson, was published on the Hockey Blog In Canada website on May 22, 2012. Verdict was produced by Frantic Films and Tactica Interactive created the online presence.
Normally, titles like the one above will accompany a questionable hit or call that happens during a game. Today, I am proud to say that we will explore something entirely different that I think is an absolutely incredible idea. Frantic Films, a Winnipeg company, is producing an "innovative legal web series" that allows you, the reader/viewer, to deliver a verdict on a possible crime committed in the video. Essentially, it's a court case on video, and YOU are the jury!
While I didn't think this had anything to do with my blog whatsoever, the email I received from Tammy about the web series proved me wrong. I'll post her email first, and then we'll take a look at why I'm helping Tammy get the word out about this exceptional idea. Tammy wrote,
I wanted to tell you about an innovative legal web series I've created that tackles the issue of fighting in hockey in this week's episode. This week on Verdict, we put a hockey enforcer on trial - he's charged with manslaughter after participating in an on-ice hockey fight in which the other goon dies. It's up to our jury of viewers to vote and decide whether he's guilty or not guilty.
I thought you might want to check it out and share with your readers so everyone can join in the deliberation and discussion about this hot button issue!
Verdict is a legal web series in which we present a court case to our "jury" of viewers each week, and then they deliberate and ultimately vote on the accused is guilty or not guilty.
