Games Are a Whole New Form of Storytelling

Games Are a Whole New Form of Storytelling | Entertainment | Scoop.it

Via The Digital Rocking Chair
Katie Chase's insight:

Storytelling for games seems difficult because the original author has to come up with so many alternative endings. Whoever is playing the game hears and sees a story that is uniquely theirs. This type of interaction really does set gaming apart from other types of media, such as television and film. I believe this is what attracts people to games. –Aellise Czupryna

Why tech titans are shying away from children's content
VentureBeat
Remember all the toys and activities you loved as a kid? Well, its a different world now.
Katie Chase's insight:

With the way media has evolved over the years and continues to evolve, it is ridiculous that media producers tend to shy away from children’s material because they find it difficult to produce. They even predict that the number of people with smart phones and/or tablets, which is currently 1.5 billion, is estimated to jump to 7.5 billion in just five years. This is where the sales are so it would only benefit them to work harder and find out ways to produce popular, appropriate “family media.” –Aellise Czupryna

Disney Wants You to Bring Your iPad to ‘The Little Mermaid’ Movie | Entertainment | Scoop.it

Katie Chase's insight:

This defeats the purpose of going to the movie theater entirely. It does not make sense to have everyone in the audience bring their tablet to the screening to be able to interact. When everyone in the theater is on a tablet, who is actually watching the film? Audience interactions are a great idea but they are not appropriate for places such as movie theaters. –Aellise Czupryna

You Can Do Anything: Must Every Kids' Movie Reinforce the Cult of Self-Esteem?

You Can Do Anything: Must Every Kids' Movie Reinforce the Cult of Self-Esteem? | Entertainment | Scoop.it
Encouraging kids is fine, but films like Planes and Turbo take their messages to an extreme. Parents should turn to 1969's A Boy Named Charlie Brown for a reality check.
Katie Chase's insight:

It is a great idea to spread positive messages to young children through movies. By watching their favorite character overcome a fear, the child is likely to learn how to incorporate similar habits into their own lives. Especially for children who may be struggling, whether they are not fitting in with friends, or they have a negative image of themselves. Having positive self-esteem is a very good thing to be teaching children at an early age. –Aellise Czupryna

Does game violence make teens aggressive?

Does game violence make teens aggressive? | Entertainment | Scoop.it
Can video games make kids more violent? A new study employing state-of-the-art brain-scanning technology says that the answer may be yes.

Via Hayden Fletcher
Katie Chase's insight:

I think this raises a good question. If kids grow up playing violent video games, I believe learned behavior traits are possible. On the other end, a kid who has never played violent games has probably never been exposed to violence on a level that allows them to participate, the way one can through video games. It is difficult to give a definite answer though. This tends to fall in a gray area. A kid who plays violent games may never have the intention to be violent themselves, the same way a kid who does not play games could have violent, learned behaviors from another source. –Aellise Czupryna

Katie Chase's comment, December 5, 2013 9:33 AM
In my opinion, I believe it could be either or and I think the environment that kids grow up in has a lot to do with it as well. Kids playing violent games could already be growing up in a bad environment so it could very well be adding to more of an aggressive teen.
Katie Chase's comment, December 5, 2013 10:06 AM
I also believe it can go either way but parenting is the key to prevent any issues on this topic, parents need to be able to communicate to their children the differences between a game and reality and the concequences aggressive behaviors could bring - Daniel De La Torre

Radio Isn’t Going Away - Mary Beth Garber | AllThingsD.com | Entertainment | Scoop.it

A few days ago a column ran in this space — “Seismic Shifts Remake the Radio Industry” — written by Paul Goldstein, a consultant for new media companies. While there truly is a seismic shift in perception of broadcast radio and the facts surrounding it, it’s not the one that Goldstein claims, and the facts — and the research — bear that out.

 

Scarborough USA Plus data shows radio has actually increased its reach of adults 18-54, 25-54 and 18-34 over the past five years. Radio accounts for more than 90 percent of almost any demographic segment of the consumer market every week. And many are surprised to discover that radio is the leading source of reach among media entertainment.
