Interactive Showrunner
Bernie Su is a two-time Primetime Emmy award-winning interactive storyteller, creator, and showrunner. He is currently the showrunner of Artificial, the first live audience-interactive science fiction series to debut on Twitch.

His previous works include The Lizzie Bennet Diaries, a ground breaking interactive adaptation of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice. The series spawned 70 million views across 160 videos and 35 social media accounts. It won the first Primetime Emmy Award for a YouTube distributed series and was adapted into a novel, thus making it the first novel based on a web series based on a novel.

He won his second Emmy for Emma Approved, an interactive re-imagination of another Austen novel, Emma. This grand series spanned five media platforms, featuring a video series, fashion blog, music experience, and social media interactivity. The series also featured partnerships with Samsung, Modcloth, and Nordstroms. The franchise has recently released an interactive mobile gaming experience through the Moment: Stories App where players can be a part of Emma's world.
