Sanctuary is an original sci-fi story universe that began as a world-first remixable film experiment around the use of 'Some Rights Reserved' licensing on professional media productions. A Creative Commons licensed "origin story" film was completed in 2009. A TV series, live cinema events and online resources for film MOD'ers are under development. Written and directed by Michela Ledwidge, Sanctuary is a transmedia production exploring new ways to engage audiences and support active participation in the story universe.

See Press Coverage, Wikipedia and Flickr for other perspectives. We're a little biased here. We think this is the most exciting project going! {:-)

Sanctuary received investment from NESTA, and the AFC. The majority of digital assets from the original production are available on request under a Creative Commons license for non-commercial distribution and re-use.
