Independent creative producer & writer, Carrie Cutforth creates fun shit across multiple platforms: content for screens, interactive storytelling, live events, and more. Since 2010, Carrie has been on the forefront of cutting-edge interactive storytelling: she created and produced rare collectibles – including a deck of retro TV trading cards – for her transmedia project SPY SLUTZ (2015); co-created and co-authored ALL YOUR FATES (2012) – the first serialized novella to be showrun like a TV series (with over a million reads on Wattpad); and wrote the novella [DEL]’S DIARY (2011) as part of Immersive Fiction’s VEIL NANOSCIENCE alternate reality game. She has since served in the roles of consultant, adviser, producer, and evaluator for all types of interactive projects including VR, AR, transmedia, web series, alternate reality games, interactive fiction, and so on.

Among her writing and/or producing screen credits, Carrie is currently serving as a writer for the TV project Studio Killers 404 (the pilot episode is currently in production). Her current project in development slated for release in spring 2021 is the digital series STARGAZE, produced by the production company BORKEN CREATIVE where she serves as President and Executive Producer.

In addition to her own creative practice as a professional writer and creative producer, Carrie consults on audience development and discoverability plans for interactive and cross-platform funding applications for films and TV & digital series in Canada. As a community leader in web series and transmedia internationally, nationally, and locally with an ongoing commitment to mentoring emerging talent, Carrie co-founded such community-building initiatives among others as the non-profit professional association THE INDEPENDENT WEB SERIES CREATORS OF CANADA (2013), the seminar-series meetup group TRANSMEDIA 101 (2011-13), and the renowned annual web series festival TO WEBFEST (as well as co-produced its 2014 inaugural year). She has also served on numerous boards and juries in service to the interactive and screen-content industries.

Carrie has appeared as a panelist, speaker, and lecturer at various conferences, webinars, and universities on the subjects of participatory fiction, interactive storytelling, web-series, and transmedia, and has been referenced in several academic journals and dissertations on these subjects.
