Phonecam Romance

All things being equal, I should soon be the owner of a camera equipped phone. I can’t think of a single thing to do with it. Except…..

Remember photo stories? They were a very eighties phenomenon- comic strips of a sort, with photographs rather than line art- where non- or semi- professional models threw dramatic poses to suit the story bubbles that appeared around them. They were primarily contemporary romances, presumably because these required the minimum costume and prop expenses, though I do remember a tongue in cheek Nemesis one in a 2000AD special. They seem to have disappeared now, apart from on the occasional tabloid problem page.

So I thought it wold be cool to do a photo story shoot on the fly, using phonecams to click and send the shots back to base to be collated and captioned. I need a few volunteers to ‘act’ and make up the story as they go along. Come on folks, don’t be shy.
