Clockwork Watch Resumes…


It has been years since the onset of the Dark Winter, and Victorian society is finally getting to grips with living in smoke.

A lifetime of burning fuels to power the big mechanical machines, coupled with diverse weather conditions created a deadly pea-souper that plunged the world into darkness.

Time has moved on…

Clockwork Watch is heading to the San Diego Comic-Con

Yes, that’s right, Clockwork Watch is packing its collective bags and jetting off to the United States in July 2013 where the team of Yomi, Jennie and Corey will be selling copies of The Arrival and Breakaway at Comic-Con International in San Diego. This is one of the biggest comic book and sci-fi conventions in the world, with well over 130,000 people attending each year, from eager showgoers and talented creators, to big-shot Hollywood actors and directors looking to promote their latest movies.

It’s an honour to have been selected among the tons of those who applied and we’ll look forward to seeing you there if you can make it! We’ll have more info on which table we’ll be seated at closer to the time.

“this project is definitely one to watch and, more importantly, get involved in.” – Geeks Unleashed!

It’s always great to have a good review, but sometimes it goes much further than a few column inches. While Clockwork Watch is a Steampunk story, it’s more about engaging participants in co-creation and storytelling. Thanks to the guys at Geeks Unleashed – you rock!

Latitude – The Film!!!

We’d like to thank all the people that took part in our Latitude immersive event. The show was produced by Louisa Norman, Holly Seager handled design, Kady Howey Nunn assisted with props / design, Sam Howey Nunn managed affairs and Firecat Masquerade provided props and direction.

A big thank you to our actors: Alex Barclay, Alyn Gwyndaf, Georgina Panton, Sohm Kapila, Paul Giffney, Yomi Ayeni and Mark Oosterveen – you rocked.

Also a huge amount of gratitude to The Men That Will Not Be Blamed For Nothing – Andy, Andrew and Thea, and the amazing Dr Geof!

The event / opportunity was made possible by vision of Tania Harrison and her team at Festival Republic.

Here’s what happened…

Are You Ready? Camera, Lights, Action!!!

Many parts of the Clockwork Watch story will be played out in the real world, as part of an immersive live-event ethos. We believe this approach encourages ‘play’ and opens the narrative to participants who want to become involved in our storyworld.

The objective is for people to share their personal experiences, in other words tell our story. Each contribution has the potential to shape the narrative, by making creative adjustments to the project.

Our second foray into this territory comes in the form of  “industrial action‘ or a strike, called by the Union for the Casual Labourer – a group representing people working on the Clockwork Project at the Department for the Advancement of Sciences. Many workers believe jobs will be at risk if the automatons they’re developing become active.

The Casual Labourer Strike is a ‘working class’ day of action, where anyone following this story can participate by going on strike. We would like everyone interested in storytelling, Steampunk, Victoriana or just role-playing to join us on July 14th 2012. You do not have to be a trade unionist to strike, in fact we hope people choose other factions, even oppose the day of action.

Create a placard stating your grievance, don your working class finery, take a photograph or video, write a story and share it on your social stream – Twitter, Facebook, blog or send it to us at (informer – @ – clockworkwatch-dot- com).

The strike is a major development in the Clockwork Watch story, and we need your help in making it happen. We hope to rally a global show of strength, some of us will picket the Advancement of Sciences Roadshow on July 14th / 15th, but kindly join us in spirit, where ever you are!

Kindly post details of your intent on our Facebook Event page, and you can follow the story live on our tweeter stream @ClockworkWatch. Read all about it in our online paper The London Gazette.

Don’t forget this is all about PLAY, and we hope you enjoy the experience.

Brothers, Sisters, drop your tools, we’re going on strike – OUT!

Yesterday’s World…Today

That was the week that was. We had a blast at Tomorrow’s World… Today. We launched Clockwork Watch with an immersive prologue, and participants had a chance to interact with characters from the story. We also made sure that the first batch of “The Arrival” were in the post, and were being delivered prior to the event.

So what happened? Well, you need to read the latest news in the London Gazette

Here are some snippets of the day’s activities:
