Welcome to StoryForward LA, a group dedicated to exploring the future of storytelling and entertainment. We host monthly meetups, workshops, and other events celebrating the leaders, the ideas and the techniques of storytelling in the 21st Century.
StoryForward LA is led by artist, creative director and strategist, Hal Hefner, who has worked on all sorts of experimental stories with Fourth Wall Studios, Ignition and Catmonkey studios, such as X-Men Days of Future Past, Duff Beer, The Defiant Few (Defiance TV show on SyFy), Gates, The Serpent Seed and many more projects from various angles.
Originally formed as TRANSMEDIA LOS ANGELES in December 2009, this group is committed to the education, innovation and incubation of new and exploratory ways to tell stories.
We want to connect people, curate experiences, incubate projects, and share our discoveries with others around the world.
