Last summer Toronto duo Times Neue Roman released Late Night Toronto, a video capturing the undertone of the city's nightlife. Continuing with the concept, Times member Arowbe (aka Robert Bolton) has gone forth and created a whole interactive transmedia experience via an online novel.
"Late Night Toronto fictionalizes real geographies, leveraging their mythologies and pushing them to the realm of fantasy. Geolocation tools, social media, and live theatre happenings will engage users in the very streets where the project takes place. Late Night Toronto breaks out of the traditional comic book panel becoming an alternative tour guide for locals and visitors alike."
