Rob Wittig & Mark C. Marino, SpeidiShow


SpeidiShow was LiveTweeting about an imaginary reality TV Show. It’s a creative social media game and a transmedia narrative that spanned Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and QuickenLoans. The project included a cast of barrel of writers including: Spencer Pratt, Heidi Montag, Cathy Podeszwa, Jean Sramek, Betsy Boyd, Skye McIlvaine-Jones, Davin Heckman, Jeff T. Johnson, Claire Donato, Ian Clarkson, Sarah-Anne Joulie, Chloe Smith.  The logo was designed by  Rick Valicenti, 3st, and the site was designed by Rob Wittig and Matt Olin.


Mark C. Marino, when he is not masquerading as Spencer Pratt or Heidi Montag on social media, Mark writes interactive stories and makes homemade pasta sauce in Los Angeles.

Rob Wittig loves to find emerging venues of everyday communication and create fictional characters there. Just try and stop him. He’s created imaginary home pages, novels in e-mail, fictional companies and their fictional forums, and now works in a transmedia form he’s dubbed netprov — networked improv narrative — that uses the media of the moment (currently Twitter & Tumblr) to spin collaborative yarns in real time. He lives, writes and teaches in the upper Midwest.
