Squattertown (episode 1), 1st Man Down
The web video series transplants a dystopian Western to the rooftops of Hong Kong. Drawing from the two hallmark film movements: the Spaghetti Westerns of the 1960s and the Hong Kong New Wave of the 1980s, Sparmberg created this “Dim Sum Western” as the homage to the glory days of Hong Kong cinema.
Marco Sparmberg has worked on numerous new media pioneer projects in China, Hong Kong, Germany and the UK during the past 12 years. He is one of the leading transmedia evangelists in Asia. As Audience Development Lead at Mediacorp, he drives the organization’s social media strategy as well as digital business transformation in digital content.
