Multimedia, Crossmedia, Transmedia… What’s in a name?

Multimedia, Crossmedia, Transmedia… What’s in a name? | Documentary Evolution | Scoop.it

"I’ve written elsewhere that we’re living through a Cambrian Explosion in the ecology of media. Suddenly — if you think about the last few decades as a fragment of the timeline that stretches back to before cave painting — we can tell stories in so many media forms and on so many media channels that it would make Richard Wagner jealous enough to steal a magic ring. We can make our kunstwerk more gesamt than ever before."

Resurrecting Multimedia from the mire of Transmedia - Journal - mikejones.tv

Resurrecting Multimedia from the mire of Transmedia - Journal - mikejones.tv | Documentary Evolution | Scoop.it

"Words come and go, in and out of fashion. And when the topics of discussion are screen-production, screen-media, technology and narrative, words can fall out of fashion very quickly. 

 

Even those words that begin with clear intentions and a desire to be useful descriptors, can quickly be hijacked and malformed into contestants for the ongoing game of buzzword bingo. ‘Transmedia’ is just such a word. With the term ‘Trans’ simply meaning ‘to move’, the notion of Transmedia as “narratives that move across different media-forms”, it’s a perfectly apt description."

mirmilla's insight:

An interesting approach ... which can also be considered in the opposite direction from another interesting post of Mediastorm (I Hate ‘Multimedia’ http://bit.ly/12pTiRl)

 

Again, the words are struggling to chase the technological and social innovations.

Julieta Romero's curator insight, August 7, 2014 9:59 AM

I proudly present to you the first edition of  the science and history interactive magazine EPOS, The Kaiser's war. EPOS is my first experience as an interactive storyteller and multimedia producer. When designing EPOS we had a clear idea in mind: We wanted to create a new reading experience, far beyond the conventions of  newspapers and magazines.

That said, our biggest challenge was to create an immersive atmosphere in which people could, through a seamless interaction, discover a rich array of pictures, videos and motion graphics. The result is a far more impressive experience than a print magazine could ever offer.

Immersive Storytelling and Presentation Tools for Journalists

Immersive Storytelling and Presentation Tools for Journalists | Documentary Evolution | Scoop.it

A collection of platforms which are centred on making text, images and video more visually captivating, interactive and immersive


With publishers keen to keep viewers engaged, many are looking at opportunities to offer more immersive storytelling experiences, and add greater depth to the content they are producing, be it text, video or images.

A number of news outlets have worked to produce content which delivers a more immersive experience than traditional templates or styles may allow, such as the oft-cited New York Times Snow Fall feature,
