Transmedia: between augmented storytelling and immersive practices

Transmedia: between augmented storytelling and immersive practices | Los Storytellers | Scoop.it
INA Global, the Revue of Creative Industries and Media...

 

The cultural industries, especially the audiovisual sectors (television and cinema, among others), have been going through deep changes related to the convergence of technologies, and with what Henry Jenkins calls “Convergence Culture”. These two movements have helped bring about the emergence of new production strategies: cross-media, transmedia storytelling (Henry Jenkins), deep media (Franck Rose), and media mix (Mizuko Ito) have gradually been making their appearance in the audiovisual landscape since the 1990s.

 

Behind these fashionable words are narrative and economic realities and a wish, on the part of the production industry, to put in place competitive creative strategies. For the audience, especially fans, there is a desire to immerse themselves in the discovery of storytelling worlds, just as there is a desire to hijack them and make them their own.

 

This article aims to scrutinize the phenomenon of transmedia storytelling in order to explain the mechanisms and the challenges for the cultural industries, in particular film and television. In the first instance, we will give a panorama of the definitions covered by the term. We will then look at how production strategies help bring about the creation of narrative worlds and of augmented storytelling. We will finish by explaining how alternate reality games (ARG) are examples – both immersive and hybrid – of transmedia creation....

The Hacktivist Imagination

The Hacktivist Imagination | Los Storytellers | Scoop.it

In The Sociological Imagination, C.W. Mills set out the essential task for sociology as he saw it. His call was simple: to search for and articulate those (casual) connections between individual social environments (what he called ‘milieux’) and the wider socio-historical forces in which they were entwined. This short article reappropriates C.W. Mills’ staunch warning to sociology with a particular social phenomenon in mind – ‘hacktivism’.

 

Hacktivism may be broadly defined as the emergence of popular political action, of the self-activity of groups of individuals, in cyberspace (Jordan and Taylor, 2004, p.1). It can be considered ‘the merging of hacking activity with an overt political stance’, where grassroots political protest is combined with the intrusion of computer systems (Jordan and Taylor, 2004, p.12). Yet, delve a little deeper and it soon becomes clear that there are biographical departures within hacktivism. Fifty years on and C.W Mills continues to provide a valuable insight; that at the juncture between ‘troubles’ and ‘issues’ lays an immediate and everyday biographical motivation. This biographical motivation is not only a site for differences within a wider ‘hacktivist’ community, but also a potential site for the interference and criminalisation of young men....
