I’ve been working with the National Trust to create a geo-triggered history of Soho called Soho Stories. It came off the back of Hackney Hear and is the first commercial project that Lucy Greenwell, Fran Panetta and I have produced as Phantom Productions.
Tomorrow is the big launch in Soho Square, with Spark London host Radcliffe Royds introducing some of the people featured in the app – in fact, they’ll be there from 1pm every day this week. Fingers crossed the weather stays nice.
Calvium are our new coders and have brought a whole heap of new features to the geo-table, including:
- a ‘Virtual Mode’ – users can select some stories off-site
- an Android version
- ‘Hidden’ speech that can be stumbled upon on some streets (including a lovely Easter Egg near Cambridge Circus)
Oh, and use the email form in the app to tell the National Trust how good it is – we may be invited to make more…
