Emmy nod for iPhone 4′s Goldilocks series

Goldilocks by Majek Pictures

Goldilocks is on the case for Majek Pictures

Majek Pictures is giddy with excitement over the fact its miniseries Goldilocks is on a longlist for an Interactive Media Peer Group award in this year’s Emmys.

The Los Angeles-based independent studio tweeted: ‘Goldilocks going for a PRIMETIME EMMY!! Woohoo’.

For those who have not been following the story of Goldilocks, it is the first webseries shot on an iPhone 4 and distributed via the Majek app.

The series, which is nine episodes old with viewers eagerly anticipating episode 10, has achieved almost 5m views from all over the world.

It also uses transmedia to tell the story and interact with viewers through a custom website, where fans can help Goldilocks ‘crack the code’. Users then decipher the messages and retweet them on Twitter or like on Facebook.

The app also notifies when a new episode is available, and Majek even use crowd-sourcing to create scenes with users asked to send shots of city skylines to use in the studio footage.

Industry insiders have hailed it as a ‘show that broke boundaries and created a revolution’, and the New York Times calls it ‘a sign of things to come’.

Goldilocks also won best film in the first iPhone Film Festival.
