Derek Thompson:  "The problem for Hollywood isn’t that audiences are ignoring sequels. The problem for Hollywood is that audiences are ignoring everything that isn’t a sequel, adaptation, or reboot. The market for films based on stories that aren’t already famous is threadbare. These sort of stories exist in entertainment, but consumers, and particularly young consumers, are looking for them outside of darkened theaters."

Alex Stewart's curator insight, February 15, 2015 3:37 PM

It's odd that in marketing we got so caught up in 'channels', that someone needed to coin the term 'transmedia' to give us the permission to break free. These guys have a shoe string budget and look the world and say 'I've got something good to share with you' or 'you know what would be cool', then they do it. No over-thinking or analysis, they just use whatever they can to share the story, and the story becomes conversation, and everyone has fun.

teaching about film can be enhanced with the use of trailers. Analyzing the importance off them, the structure of them and the key features is a great way in to film study.

Michael Cavna:  "Disney is thinking so far beyond sequels — first with its Marvel Cinematic Universe, next with its Star Wars galaxies — that it is now fully, successfully engaging viewers across interlocking narratives. Each time a film like “Civil War” can land with audiences — building upon and/or introducing a dozen key characters — the universe can move not just linearly, but also multilaterally."

Tom George's curator insight, May 10, 2016 8:31 PM
Pure genius! Most of us are not in the entertainment business. But what does great entertainment and story telling have to do with great marketing. Answer. Everything.

A very smart play from Disney. You can use this strategy in your business. If you are creative and come up with a plan. If you need some ideas just ask.

I really like the transmedia storytelling idea, but simultaneous transmedia? i'm not so sure...what happens to the unfiltered narration experience? i'm more for the before and after. unless films are actually written with transmedia in mind. simply transmedia-ing existing films won't work. at least not for the core story.

La maggior parte del l'idea alla base di Secret Cinema, è sorprendentemente semplice: immergere completamente il pubblico nel mondo del film, entrare in contatto con la storia in un modo più profondo.

 

Luca Brigada's curator insight, March 19, 2013 6:30 PM

The production that the Secret Cinema crew puts on is a true transmedia experience in the fullest sense of the definition from Henry Jenkins. "Transmedia storytelling represents a process where integral elements of a fiction get dispersed systematically across multiple delivery channels for the purpose of creating a unified and coordinated entertainment experience. Ideally, each medium makes its own unique contribution to the unfolding of the story."
