"Eve Sussmam and the Rufus Corporation did just that. She and lead actor Jeff Wood traveled to the Kazakhstan border of the Caspian Sea for two years of filming. But instead of a movie with a beginning, middle and end, they shot 3,000 individual and unrelated clips. To the clips they added 80 voice-overs and 150 pieces of music, mixed it all together and put it in a computer."

Au sein de WU, Kora Van Den Bulcke et Thomas Soetens œuvrent à la création d’espaces hybrides où la mince frontière entre la réalité de l’environnement physique et la réalité perceptuelle se confondent. Les recherches de WU proposent une réflexion sur la culture médiatique, les conceptions traditionnelles de l’espace, la perception, la représentation, la limite entre le réel et le vraisemblable.

Transmedia and the Art of Brand Storytelling "more immersive, collaborative experiences"

Transmedia and the Art of Brand Storytelling "more immersive, collaborative experiences" | expanding cinema | Scoop.it

There’s certainly a great deal of discussion happening today around the transmedia concept, though the idea of a story being told across multiple platforms is hardly new. But what is evolving from previous incarnations of the idea is element of a more disciplined distribution of story, and a more thoughtful approach to the timing and delivery of story layers across the various touchpoints.

"It was only with the advent of the DVD it and large-screen projection that it became feasible, in my film classes, to pause a film with clarity and really explore the meaning of the image. This—and an essay by Roland Barthes called “The Third Meaning: Research Notes on Some Eisenstein Stills”—really transformed the way I thought about film."

Transmedia & the Future of Filmmaking. Forget 3-D —interactive media is the next wave of entertainment.

Transmedia & the Future of Filmmaking. Forget 3-D —interactive media is the next wave of entertainment. | expanding cinema | Scoop.it

Enter the "transmedia" movement. A cinema/digital media hybrid anchored in filmmaking, this new brand of storytelling is defined by works that combine the typical moviegoing experience with more interactive elements, enabled by new media tools. There's no standard formula for making a transmedia work—the field is too young to have ossified in form yet—so the new medium is being produced in varying iterations.
The first transmedia experience this journalist had was truly poignant. At the beginning of Chris Milk's music video for Arcade Fire's "The Wilderness Downtown," the user is prompted to enter the address of the home in which they grew up. The video then begins. Featuring a young boy running shown from various angles (in simultaneously open windows, thanks to the capabilities of HTML5, a new kind of Internet coding language), the video begins

Archive: All about Nordic LARP - Live Action Role Plays - Pervasive Games Theory & Design | expanding cinema | Scoop.it

In the Nordic countries, live-action role-playing has developed into a unique and powerful form of expression. Nordic larps range from entertaining flights of fancy to the exploration of the intimate, the collective and the political. This incredible tradition combines influences from theatre and performance art with gamer cultures, in order to push the boundaries of role-playing.

Nordic Larp presents a critical cross section of this vibrant culture through 30 outstanding larps, combining stories told by designers, players and researchers with over 250 photographs of play and preparations. In addition the book contains two essays that explain the history and rhetorics of Nordic larp, and contextualizes it in relation to theatre, art and games.
