Let's Make Mischief

Let’s Make Mischief was a city-wide treasure hunt, created to mark the closing night of the Northern Lights Film Festival 2010 in Newcastle. 

The game, began as an online viral project, with members of the public signing up to investigate the mysterious actions of fictional character Ted Hex - a disgruntled film maker - whose films have been turned down by the festival year after year.  Ted Hex stole the festival’s closing night film ‘Kick Ass’ and it was up to the treasure hunt teams to find the lost film cans round Newcastle city centre before the evening’s screening.

I was invited to work with creative media company Mere Mortals and writer Ian Fenton to develop this pervasive game and closing gala event.
