Mobile Apps & Transmedia for Engaging Audiences

I’m a tech-savvy but non-coding librarian and filmmaker and I’d like to learn more about creating mobile apps or other transmedia tools for engaging audiences after/before/during the life of a documentary project. Any others interested in this topic?

I’m currently working on a new documentary and could propose an app idea for this film that we could try to hack together in a MAKE session if there’s interest… Alternately, are any of you willing to lead a TEACH session on some mobile app creation or transmedia tools?
