Pfaffenthal in 1867

This beautiful video by Pepa Cometa will give you a flavour of the work that Hauptmann Weydert has already completed, in the construction of the Pfaffenthal reconstruction.

Visitors to the Luxembourg City Museum are able to walk through the computer-generated streets and so gain an appreciation of what the city was like, some 150 years ago.

Transmedia Storytelling

If you are curious to learn about my latest project, you might find the following blog update to be of interest.

Just recently, Hauptmann Weydert, a reader from Luxembourg approached me with news of a historical project that he was coordinating and he asked for specific input. Previously, he had read some of my published eBooks and he could see the potential for transmedia storytelling, by my involvement in his project.

Hauptmann has created a three-dimensional computer generated replica of the Pfaffenthal district of Luxembourg, set at the time of 1867. The Luxembourg Crisis of 1866 nearly led to war between Prussia and France and brought about the Grand Duchy’s independence and neutrality being affirmed, by the Second Treaty of London of 1867. It was then that the surrounding city fortifications were demolished and Luxembourg underwent great change. (You may note that next year, 2017, will be the 150th anniversary of this important European date.

Hauptmann has many exciting ideas in developement, for the anniversary of this major UNESCO World Herittage site. He approached me for input regarding the creation of storylines for his charcaters, within the Pfaffenthal recreation. It sounded exciting and so I was happy to oblige.

Over the next few months, I shall be very pleased to update you with any develoments about this project.
