Last Hijack Interactive

Won International Emmy Award 2015, Prix Europe 2014, Dutch Game Awards 2015
Last Hijack Interactive is an online transmedia experience that allows you to explore the hijacking of a ship in Somalia. Exploring both sides of the story, Last Hijack Interactive allows you to uncover the complex realities behind piracy in Somalia though the eyes of a pirate and a captain, the pirates parent and the captains wife. Combining live-action video and animation, the interactive experience gives the user the opportunity to navigate the stories of these characters, building to the hijack itself and the resulting aftermath.

The interactive experience is the counterpart to Last Hijack, a feature length film combining animation with storytelling directed by Femke Wolting and Tommy Pallotta.
