Before Jumping on the Transmedia Bandwagon: The Four Ways to Approach Transmedia Storytelling

Before Jumping on the Transmedia Bandwagon: The Four Ways to Approach Transmedia Storytelling | Hitchhiker | Scoop.it
The digital revolution has spurred a revolution in storytelling, and filmmakers have been exploring ways to host, extend, amplify and augment their audio-visual narratives online since the Internet became a popular communication device.
Minna Kilpeläinen's insight:

It´s good to remember: "Audiences don’t like entertainment that feels like nothing but a grab for their hard-earned cash; they need to feel like there is an equitable transaction in place. It’s the same thing with transmedia. If you want to succeed, you shouldn’t just be bolting on a few components because they’re what the industry thinks is sexy right now. You need to have a creative purpose for each piece, and you have to be acutely aware of how all the pieces fit together to make a whole that is bigger than the sum of its parts."

This is a really good app, I'm using Lapse-it pro for almost 2 years now and in my opinion is the best to create time lapse videos with android, for stop motion movies instead I'd use other apps that provide onion skinning function.

Van Gogh's Shadow: Amazing animation of Van Gogh’s paintings suddenly filled with life | Hitchhiker | Scoop.it

Luca Agnani, an Italian designer and animator, has taken the classic works of Vincent Van Gogh, and brought them to life. He's created a short film called Van Gogh's Shadow which shows over a dozen of Van Gogh’s paintings suddenly filled with life and movement, perhaps giving us an insight into how the artist may have seen the world he lived in.

Never heard of it - must be worth sharing :)

Robin Good's insight:Introducing content curation to someone who doesn't know anything about it is not always an easy task. There are so many different articles, opinions, definitions and recommendations about content curation that it is quite difficult for someone just getting familiar with the topic, to easily find out where to start and what to trust. To help out anyone needing to support the explanation of content curation to others, here are five comprehensive resource collections I have put together over the course of the last year. 1) Content Curation - Definitions a collection of the best and most useful definitions of what content curation is http://bundlr.com/b/content-curation-definition 2) Content Curation - What is it? Video Intros 30+ short video clips that introduce the need, practice and purpose of content curation http://huzzaz.com/collection/content-curation-what-is-it 3) Content Curation Visualized 110+ infographics, visuals, illustrations and diagrams explaining what content curation is www.pinterest.com/robingood/content-curation-visualized/ 4) Content Curation Tools Directory - Tools Directory 100+ of the best content curation tools organized in a directory for immediate access http://contentcuration.zeef.com/ 5) Content Curation Tools Supermap - Tools Collection 600+ content curation, discovery, filtering and publishing tools organized by categories for doing content curation http://bit.ly/ContentCurationToolsSupermap All free to use and share.

Street photography | Photographer: Justin Sainsbury

Street photography | Photographer: Justin Sainsbury | Hitchhiker | Scoop.it

I was born in 1971 in Brighton, on the south coast of England. Taking pictures is one thing I have stuck at. It’s the occasional surprise; either in the picture or circumstance I find myself part of, which keeps me wandering.

I try not to have an agenda but seem to be drawn to the psychology of a situation- this often seems to involve a relationship of some sort, either between people or their environment. I do enjoy the fun stuff, but it’s the pictures that raise questions or might have different interpretations that really interest me. To me, it’s the business of discovering latent fictional stories in everyday situations. - Justin Sainsbury

Minna Kilpeläinen's insight:

"Transmedia components help the creators and the producers to place the story world – the intellectual property -  in different context across different media platforms, that the audience can encounter there. It’s the subject matter, and the characters that are going to draw them in – not the fact that it, like television today, is located on a single media that you have to make an appointment to go and see.” - Jeff Gomez
