Afterevents; a documentary series about the impact of events.

Afterevents

Inspired by the recent Olympics in Sochi and its consequences I thought of Afterevents, a documentary series about the true impact of events.

Every event has a lot of organising in itself. In this documentary series, it follows a whole region and its people in the months towards and after the actual event. I can’t get the idea out of my head that most effort is done upfront while only little attention is spent on the post era of an event. In this documentary series, a discours is being told about the region and its inhabitants (locals) where the event takes place. Ranging from political gatherings and protest marches, over music and sex festivals to large scale sportsevents, this documentary series tells their story and how they deal with the consequences of the event. Local political, economic and social story lines cross each other. The stress and expectations to make the event run smoothly versus the harsh reality of what happens after the event. Is it a hangover or a new dynamic for the region and its people? What with the organisers and temporary infrastructure? And so much more.

the personal digital wallet for events

The idea is to have some kind of replacement for beer cards, drink coupons, etc. at events. A temporary digital wallet for any event persona in which they can buy coupons for the event itself.
At exchange points, these persona’s get offered new tastes, sometimes based on their preferences, mostly based on their profile and sponsor arrangements the event has.

Event based digital wallets gives the organisers a better understanding of their public. Seeing who lets money roll, what their personal interest is, while providing real time statistics that could even influence a dj’s setlist provides sales optimisation opportunities in live situations unseen before. They organisers could even anticipate and experiment with situations where sales promo’s of sponsors are being in order to up- and cross-sell. Why else would Unilever ever sponsor an event? 🙂

This combined with shared wiki-ish to do lists, and all integrated with one another, make this series unbeatable in the household league.
