Eko - previously Interlude

Eko - previously Interlude We are a media and technology company pioneering a new kind of video that responds to a person's emotions and interests.

Interlude is pioneering a new form of media in which video can respond to a person’s actions and interests in real-time. Stories told using our patented technology can adapt in a multitude of directions; like in a video game, the viewer steps into the story to make choices that affect dialogue, and even the plot, at any particular moment in time. This means that viewers are offered nearly infinite experiences in live-action video within a single piece of content. The result is highly engaging game-like videos that consumers play over and over. We partner with entertainment companies, independent creators, and top brands to create episodic series that are distributed widely through a network of affiliates on the mobile web, mobile apps, and the web. Interlude investors include Sequoia Capital, NEA, Marker, and Innovation Endeavors. Strategic investors include Intel Capital, Warner Music Group and Samsung. The company is based in New York, with offices in Tel Aviv, and Los Angeles. Learn more about Interlude at interlude.fm

Mission: Interlude aims to revolutionize interactive video storytelling.

It's official: we are becoming eko! The possibilities are endless as we embrace newer aspects of our business, including our entertainment destination, HelloEko.com, plus the technology and services you know us for. We’ve created a unique interactive medium for video, one that multiplies as it responds to an action - much like an ‘echo.’ This is a video medium that allows each viewer to individually shape the story as it unfolds. We can't wait to see what the future has in store for all of us at eko and the storytelling medium we are pioneering.

In our latest creator profile, Rattapallax's Ram Devinei tells us about all the fabulous work that went into making 'Fabulous Hair!'. "It was completely by chance that I ended up making this film after seeing a billboard on the New Jersey Turnpike for a hair competition in Philadelphia called “Hair Idol.” My curiosity led me to Sina and her salon, and it was an amazing and fun experience."

I love a good #BTS, but what I love even more is seeing Daniel Scheinert talk like an interface designer. Pretty cool that we're living in a time when filmmakers are thinking about where buttons should be placed on a screen.
