V Renée:  "No one knows storytelling quite like Pixar.  Their films are entertaining on so many levels; they make us laugh, make us cry, and even make us want to become better filmmakers. But perhaps the greatest quality of a Pixar movie is its ability to move an audience, which is a direct result of the brain trust's aptitude for great storytelling."

Simon Staffans on applying lean development principles to content creation ....

donhornsby's curator insight, May 23, 9:15 AM
(From the article): Now, content will of course – for the foreseeable future – still follow along the traditional lines outlined at the beginning of this post. The creator creates, the audience receives. But the ones that get these points, the ones that feel that working lean in an audience-engaged contest… these creators, they will reap rewards that will make everyone else stand up and take notice.

Jon Evans:  "Even in stationary DomeVR, you can twist and turn and spin and look at a full 360 degrees of immersive environment [...] there is no clear demarcation between “story space” and elsewhere, as there is with a TV or movie or game screen. Your mind keeps telling you that everything is story space."

Startup Medium Raises $50M & Read Time App "Readism" May Be Why

Startup Medium Raises $50M & Read Time App "Readism" May Be Why | About writing | Scoop.it

Medium's Read Time App and Scoop.it's Lean Content
This Curagami post shares KUDOS for Guillaume Decugis and the @scoopit team. Medium's making their read time app, somethg they call Readism, available across the web is sure to hasten every prediction Guilluame and company made about lean content marketing several years ago. 

Medium's new "app" is a Chrome extension. If you are creating content and NOT using it  you're nuts. We decided to make two posts instead of one when we saw six minute read time on our lean content + tools riff. 

We wanted to add a few tools to Scoop.it's Why Lean Content Is The Future of Content Marketingpost. We wanted to add:

  • Haiku Deck (like more than Slideshare)
  • Feedly Pro (so you have a site)

But their side did say "many more", so we will save our 1,000 word six minute read content curation tools post for tomorrow. In the meantime, if you're not using Medium's read time app Readism and you use content to market online you're nuts.

Le Transmedia Storytelling représente le fait de raconter une histoire cohérente éclatée sur plusieurs plateformes médiatiques dans le but de créer une expérience globale. L’objectif est de déployer un univers cohérent où chaque élément narratif vient enrichir les autres. Ce procédé permet de multiplier les points d’entrée dans l’univers et ainsi toucher une plus grande audience.
