Working together with long-time collaborators Fresh TV and broadcaster Teletoon Canada, marblemedia has launched Stoked Interactive (www.teletoon.com/stoked/en) to coincide with the March 4 premiere of new episodes and push to the second season premiere this September.
Together with Teletoon Canada, marblemedia has built up the site to expand on the series’ surfer culture vibe, which includes more indie music, irreverent quips and a chance to interact with the characters. Features currently available include a character-driven messaging activity, Meet the Groms and Stoked Radio. In development are new features that will allow the website to grow through to April 2010, when fans will be introduced to the Rippin’ Remixer, a music video editing module, and Grom Life, a social simulation game where players become an original Grom.
Stoked Interactive is produced in association with Teletoon Canada and with the financial participation of Telefilm Canada and the Canadian Television Fund. This online experience, along with the television series, is available for licensing via Cake Entertainment.
Stoked follows six teens from across Canada who travel to Sunset Island, B.C. for a summer of sun, sea, sand and, most importantly, surf. Working at a luxury resort they find that their plans for an endless summer of surfing might not be all that they hoped when, instead of a surfer’s paradise, they find a tacky tourist resort with rude guests, a run-down staff house and itchy, hideous uniforms.
