Transmedia adj. - end of the debate, phew :) I GIVE UP! Or, How I Learned to Stop Worrying & Love Transmedia

Transmedia adj. - end of the debate, phew :) I GIVE UP! Or, How I Learned to Stop Worrying & Love Transmedia | Documentary Evolution | Scoop.it
As many have written before, ‘transmedia’ is a divisive term, laden with all manner of conflicting ideas and sometimes wielded as a political weapon by people with differing business and personal agendas.

Gary Hayes's curator insight, November 12, 2013 4:24 PM

Quote " This was followed by a discussion of how ‘transmedia’ can be used as an adjective instead of a noun, which isnot a new idea, but in this context suddenly felt less like a theoretical point, and more like the Truth.

This solved many problems. For example, a phrase like “transmedia performance art” which used to make me throw up a little, suddenly seemed perfectly in tune with the Universe. If you’re trying to create a definition of “transmedia” that refers to a thing with specific attributes then “transmedia performance art” will cause a major case of cognitive dissonance. However, if the word itself is defined as an attribute, suddenly your marbles all find their way home."

"On the July 15th, 2014 edition of Your Call, we’ll talk to the makers of the interactive web-based documentary, “Hollow” about the boom and bust of a single county in West Virginia.  The viewer is asked to scroll through and click on music, photographs, videos, and timelines to experience a varied and in-depth portrait of a place and its people. So where are you seeing good online documentary work?  And what’s the power of web technology to enhance news and storytelling? "

A Conversation with the Makers of the Interactive Documentary 'Hollow'

i-Docs's curator insight, July 3, 9:23 AM

'Hollow' is an interactive documentary that merges cinematic techniques with web-based storytelling to encourage a dialogue about the issues that small-town America faces. The project examines the lives of 30 individuals living in McDowell County, W.Va., an area that is representative of many boom-and-bust areas across the country. McDowell County has lost almost 80 percent of its population since 1950 and continues to lose more young people every year due to a lack of economic opportunity. This rural brain drain has left many counties across the nation with an aging demographic and failing infrastructure. However, many people—approximately 22,000—continue to live and work in McDowell. They feel a great sense of pride and belonging and believe they are there to help improve and move the county into the future.
