WBP LABS is a division of the Workbook Project (WBP). Acting as agency meets think-tank meets project producer, WBP LABS utilizes the WBP community by providing the experiences, content and delivery the network strives for, and pulling talent from its pool to make it happen. WBP LABS also has a strong focus on the research, data collection and analysis that surrounds these original projects, monitoring audience reaction in order to further inform highly relevant breakthrough work, and return the information to the community itself.
RADAR is a weekly series produced by WBP LABS - a division of the Workbook Project. The series is a timely, insiders view into the cutting edge of storytelling and creativity.
RADAR highlights innovative projects and events across different creative disciplines, hangs with creators and founders, and digs deep into process, method and participation.
From what it means to ideate on the fly with musical improv due I Eat Pandas, to the curation of confessional storytelling in Cassette From My Ex and the importance of community in the Next-Door Neighbor all-star webcomix project, RADAR provides a cultural compass for audiences, in order to both inform and inspire.
RADAR is not traditional web content. The series is stylish with high production values, mini documentaries that get to the heart of the subject matter, shot with a commercial and music video mentality by award winning filmmakers from the WBP network.
