Moving Tales -- interactive digital storytelling content 0 L. Cashman Greetings American Folklore Society, from Moving Tales!     In recognition of our common love of stories, we think you might be curious to learn about the world of Moving Tales.    At Moving Tales, we’re committed to creating rich, resonant content for new and emerging technologies by engaging mindfully, creatively and playfully. We create interactive digital storytelling content for adults and children alike for the iPad, iPhone and the iPod touch and include among our productions the acclaimed Pedlar Lady of Gushing Cross.  This story is the first in our series of Classic World Tales - a collection of dynamic and imaginatively interpreted and adapted stories inspired by age old folk tales from around the world.  The story is beautifully narrated in three languages, fully animated, and includes the option to record you own telling.      We are interested in exploring the ways in which emerging technologies can add new dimensions to the world of storytelling, and the ways in which these technologies might be used to further define and shape story sharing experiences in the 21st century.   We’re also excited to announce the  re-release of our home grown interactive children’s story Elly’s Lost and Found Sounds as a Free Web App, now available to anyone who has a web browser.   Please join us in this, our latest collective experiment in the making of reflective and deep media experiences, as Moving Tales looks to further explore the value of stories in meaningful and engaging ways     If you are curious to learn more about what we’re up to, sign up for our newsletter and explore our STORY THREADS blog at Moving Tales. We look forward to sharing and exploring the rich world of timeless tales both old and new with you.    Long Live STories!   Jacqueline O Rogers Moving Tales Inc. - Bringing Stories to Life www.moving-tales.com
