What did they ask for?
Movistar+ began its journey down the path to creating its own fictional series, a high stakes gamble with high-quality formats. For the premiere of ‘La Zona’, the new series by the Sánchez-Cabezudo brothers starring Eduard Fernández, Alba Galocha, Juan Echanove and Álvaro Cervantes, they asked us for an expansion of the transmedia narrative that was on par with the quality of the original production.
We did we do?
At FLUOR, we begin to investigate new forms of story immersion and new ways of engaging the viewer
What were the results?
More than a year ago, Movistar+ asked us to undertake what we most love: a challenge. They were just starting out on the production of their own series and needed a transmedia project that was on par with the great content. We decided to confront this challenge head on, taking ourselves out of our comfort zone, and so we began to investigate new forms of story immersion and the result was the creation of an interactive storytelling game for La Zona.
To begin with, we asked ourselves 3 questions. The first was about how to access an exclusion zone. At FLUOR Lifestyle, we were sure that we wanted the user to discover first-hand the entire plot of the series.
But how would we create a strong parallel plot when we were dealing with such a powerful story? We love telling stories and we knew that the narrative had to be the main element – our strong point. The narrative, together with the layer of interactivity, were the keys to achieving an immersive experience for the user.
With all this clear, the third question we asked ourselves was: how do we achieve something that we have never done before? A parallel narrative was the solution here, to ensure that every decision that the user made was indispensably valuable in discovering the story, with a return to the main narrative storyline for all key moments.
To achieve the ideal fit between the scripts and their digital development, we created our own tool to build interactive narrative universes. ‘Storyteller’, as we have called this tool, directly translates the literary scripts and their interactivity into codes that are ready to be implemented on the web.
With all these ingredients, we have achieved an experience based on techno-creativity, in which people enter La Zona and through their own decisions, they discover a world parallel to that of the series, but one that is also totally complementary and filmed in the same location.
In ‘Sigue la pista’, viewers can discover more than 2 million different possibilities in a universe of corruption, secrecy and radiation, through 8 missions, 28 characters, 211 photographs, 24,360 locations, 163 videos and 434 different screens.

For any brand, the holy grail is engagement, managing to create an impact with your content, to be followed up with creating an emotion in the audience. We understand engagement as having an audience entirely engrossed in the moment, captivated by the story, completely forgetting the real context, transported to a world different from ours.
This engagement is something that storytelling provokes, because we are social beings who understand and learn about the world around us through stories and legends. The stories capture our attention, because their characters are complex creations, and the tales are full of nooks and crannies among which we allow ourselves to get lost. We either love or despise them, but we always feel some kind of identification with them that allows us to project ourselves into the story.

Here at FLUOR we think that if we change, everything changes. That is our eternal challenge concerning advertising: to transform the mental processes of the sector, especially of the advertisers, and to take on new contrasting realities. In addition, a very important aspect in this context is the lifestyle.
