SXSW Interactive 2013: Warner Bros. Tell-A-Vision Lounge

The first interactive lounge I visited on the official first day of SXSW was the Warner Brothers Television Group’s space, titled Warner Bros. Tell-A-Vision.  Located at the Mexic-Art Museum, their first debut at SXSW featured Revolution and Chuck Lorre on Friday and Saturday and will feature The CW on Sunday and Monday.

During Revolution, guests can play with the themed features including creating their own screen print shirt design, try some Moonshine distillers, watch a live sculpture demo from reclaimed bike parts and write on the Facebook Chalk Wall.  The Chuck Lorre-themed activities include a curated collection of his vanity cards, a giant TV remote wrapped in a condom, a ball pit and yummy self-serve vanilla ice cream.  Guests can get interactive by writing down the ‘Most Overused Lines’ heard at SX on giant Post-It notes.

The CW activities, starting Sunday morning will feature guests to pitch their original content ideas (on-camera!) for a new digital series to the CW’s digital studio, CWD, and one lucky idea-ist could win a trip to LA to speak to industry executives about their idea.  Then, fans can ‘Tweet with Ian’ Somerhalder of ‘The Vampire Diaries’ and he’ll be responding to some special fans at the lounge with personal video messages.  Additionally, Smart Glass demonstrations will be going on with X-Box and a Villian-themed photo booth as well as name generator.
