A well worth piece from Michael over at ARGNet, looking back on 2012. 

Margaret Doyle's curator insight, December 30, 2012 12:52 AM

Awesome review, inspiring. Important to re-read when one feels the challenges are too great. 

Jeni Mawter's curator insight, December 30, 2012 11:20 PM

For most storytellers transmedia is still daunting...

 

It's time to lose the fear. Learning more about TMS is Step One.

5 interesting predictions here. Although a more profound question is what is the potentual when you merge ALL 5 senses in a mobile phone application?? ("The whole is more than the sum of its parts").

This goes far beyond the idea of Star Trek's Tricorder. Very interesting potential future uses of smartphones.

MediaEntity, bande dessinée transmédia, débarque sur la toile

MediaEntity, bande dessinée transmédia, débarque sur la toile | Digital Archeology | Scoop.it

Pas la peine de cacher l'enthousiasme : le premier épisode de MediaEntity est ultra-prometteur. Cette écriture web est extrêmement réussie et prend tout son sens dans les scènes d'action : fuite et course-poursuite. C'est vif, emporté et haletant. On verra si la technique porte de pareils fruits dans des séquences plus psychologiques, à l'aide de gros plans sur les visages, les traits et les regards.

Broad Strokes: Coloring Canon Outside the Lines | Digital Archeology | Scoop.it

Transmedia and games are a natural fit - arguably more so than transmedia goes with film and TV. Games have done things I'd consider transmedia for decades. And I maintain that modern games can become better by adopting even more transmedia narrative methods.

2nd screen? 4D? 9 Mind-Blowing Technologies Changing The Film Industry’s Future | The Creators Project

2nd screen? 4D? 9 Mind-Blowing Technologies Changing The Film Industry’s Future | The Creators Project | Digital Archeology | Scoop.it
No, the movie industry is not dying. Take a look at some cutting-edge technologies that are moving film forward.

A lot of noise has been made about how the newest iPad has a higher resolution screen than an HD TV. So… get ready to see a lot more people shuffling around nose-deep in their tablets! While watching a movie on your iPad when you’re on a bus (and trying not to punch the screaming baby behind you) certainly doesn’t rival the immersive experience a theater offers, it’s obvious that the mobility of this option is extremely attractive to viewers.

Increasingly often, indie films that don’t have the luxury of wide distribution are being released on YouTube and Hulu on-demand the same day they come out in theaters. Some are even going the straight-to-iPhone route: a UK soap opera called Persona was exclusively available for download on smartphones and tablets.

Directors are also shooting entire movies on their phones. In 2011, Hooman Khalili was the first to shoot his feature-length film Olive with a Nokia smartphone. As for iPads, a British guy made a movie called The Silver Fox that claims to be the first one made specifically for iPads. Its description as a “dark, romantic drama” will probably trigger alarm bells in your head though, so check out some stellar iPhone movies at the iPhone Film Festival instead.

Simon Staffans: The audience is your channel | | MIPBlogMIPBlog | Digital Archeology | Scoop.it

Are you looking for an audience for your content? Or are you perhaps looking to expand the audience of your TV channel? Or are you trying to reach a new demographic, a new audience? You are more than welcome to try achieving those things in the traditional ways, but one thing you have to take into account is a whole new channel that has opened up for everyone – the audience itself.

 

The beauty of looking at the audience as your channel to other members of the audience, is apparent when looking at the equivalent in marketing – propagation planning. The art lies in creating not only for the people you want to reach, but the people you want them to reach. Namely catering for “friends of friends”, in social media parlance.

 

This is where transmedia storytelling principles can come effectively into play. By creating interconnected stories at the foundations of your content, it is possible to offer the audience content and experiences that could cater to many tastes and become the stories – with inherent tools – that your audience will spread to new audiences....

The big trend in 3D projection this year?  Moving away from projections on just buildings to, well, projections on anything and everything - indoors and out.

But what's you're view? Agree or disagree with us? What initiatives make your list?

One thing's for sure: We can't wait to see where this emerging tech takes us next.

This article paints an interesting picture of where augmented reality might take us over the next decade.  With major players like Google and Microsoft investing heavily in the field there's no doubt that we'll see major developments in this area.  As with all technologies highlighted here, the key from a strategic perspective is to have a view on how major advances in augmented reality might impact not only your existing business but also the business eco-system within which you operate.

David Rowe's curator insight, March 26, 2014 12:55 AM

Brain Power, the third film in the Let it Ripple Mobile Films for Change series, is the latest creation of the film maker Tiffany Shlan.

 

Much has been said about her and what she has called “Cloud Filmmaking” (http://bit.ly/UodbV8)

An(other) example of how you can create documentaries in a participatory manner 

 

excerpts:

(...) Brain Power has a remix aesthetic, heavy on archive, stills and animation. It includes sequences drawn in through crowd-sourcing; gathered, for example, by asking how people in different places imagine the brain.

 

p.s.: for those who want to read, an interesting digression regarding the point of view of Brian Newman is that of "Etsy short docs" (http://bit.ly/TEJ8KK)
