Transmedia doesn’t mean what you think it does. You may have heard of this term “transmedia,” it is one of the buzzwords that has spread through the literature, film, TV, and gaming industries in the last few years. I have. I have lived and breathed it for years, even before it was called transmedia. I’ve given hundreds of talks around the world about what it apparently is and could be. I wrote the first PhD on Transmedia Practice, where I argued it cannot be defined by an end point – projects that involve the continuation of a narrative across more than two media for instance – and instead it represents a change in the way people create.
