"Tossed: Waste and Recycling Quiz" is an award-winning interactive film teaching better habits at waste receptacles to encourage players to reduce, reuse, and recycle! Being the project creator, I conceptualized the piece from two primary storytelling desires; consumer-behavioral disposal popular knowledge and myths, and the technical application of media distributed on digital content platforms. This participatory media project to reflect the player's decisions and offers a 'no risk' practice in better waste behaviors with common objects they're likely to encounter throwing away each day.
Tossed was awarded an Honorable Mention at the One Earth Film Festival in March 2020. The film was screened twice at the festival: at the Gene Siskel Film Center, and an online screening of honorable mention films.
