Mike Vogel:  "Here’s a dilemma every transmedia producer faces… You discover a new storytelling platform–maybe you get in to their invite-only beta–and you create a story that uses the strengths of that platform. The platform gives you a powerful new way to express yourself interactively, but then something happens. Maybe the startup runs out of funding, gets acquired, or changes their business model. Suddenly the DNA of your story is no longer available to you. Your story can no longer be told."

Attention, Filmmakers: Here Are the Secrets to the 'Serial' Podcast's Storytelling Success

Attention, Filmmakers: Here Are the Secrets to the 'Serial' Podcast's Storytelling Success | Digital Storytelling Tools, Apps and Ideas | Scoop.it

The true crime podcast has become an addiction for millions of listeners -- and the reasons why might be useful for any storyteller.  Storytellers are obsessed with structure, with act breaks, with satisfying endings. This is perhaps doubly true for non-fiction storytellers: when you set out to tell a true story, you have to do justice to the truth even as you cram it into a satisfying story-sized box. If you want to tell a story but don't know the answers to your central questions in advance -- or even whether you will find the answers -- it's a big risk to trust that you can wrap it up in a satisfying way.

Dominique Taste's curator insight, December 2, 2014 1:45 PM

Analyse fouillée des mécanismes du storytelling à l'oeuvre dans ce podcast-feuilleton qui rassemble plus d'1,5 million d'auditeur chaque semaine à la radio.

La storytelleuse et productrice, Sarah Koenig s'est détourné des codes classiques de narration anglo-saxonne, en créant une fiction interactive avec un personnage de narrateur. L'originalité du récit est que l'auteur elle-même n'en connaît pas l'issue. Donc aucun risque de spoiler, le suspense reste intact.

We are no strangers to the benefits of storytelling in content marketing. Knowing that audiences are more likely to remember (and share) stories that connect in an emotional way has allowed marketers to develop truly unique content.
