Games allow us to explore uncharted worlds, enhance our own creativity and help us understand and solve complex problems in ways we never thought possible. Next-generation gaming experiences should keep these core ideals alive. If all else fails, games should ultimately just be fun, right?

Henrik Safegaard - Cloneartist's insight:

If you’re a fan of the Fast and Furious actor, you’re well aware that he has a whopping 83.6 million Facebook fans. If that doesn’t impress you, it should. He has more likes than any other actor on the planet and is very in touch with his fans – something studios would be very interested in using to their advantage to increase a movie’s exposure.

Can Binge-Viewing TV Actually Be Good for Kids? Amazon Has a Plan

Can Binge-Viewing TV Actually Be Good for Kids? Amazon Has a Plan | Machinimania | Scoop.it

Via The Digital Rocking Chair
Henrik Safegaard - Cloneartist's insight:

 Tara Sorensen, Head of Kids Programming at Amazon Studios:

:

"We're not asking them to sit in front of the television and tie them to a block of programming [like with standard broadcast television]. They can pause it.

They can rewatch it. It offers up a nice amount of flexibility, so I don't think it's just about keeping them in front of a 'screen' for us."

Ben Travers:  "With the studio's first ever original kids' shows debuting this summer, Amazon is trying to break into children’s programming from a groundbreaking new angle: long-term education."

Dr. Pamela Rutledge's curator insight, May 26, 2014 5:38 PM

Journalists and society-at-large do #Amazon and viewers a huge disservice by tagging kid-centric content as '#binge-viewing' as if putting the viewer in control of what he/she watches is a bad thing--not to mention that it has nothing to do with what Amazon is trying to accomplish with their programming for preschoolers.  


Creators working with Amazon have intentionally tried to step out of their adult bias and look through eyes of preschoolers.  Their goal is to create engaging content that triggers curiosity and creativity.   This is the same approach I advocate for storytelling and central to the persona development and audience profiling in the courses & workshops we teach via Fielding's Masters program.  The fact that Amazon streaming allows for viewer controlled consumption encourages other activities because there is no #FOMO by playing through scheduled broadcasts.  Seriously, how is this even remotely negative?  When will we get over blaming the audience for exercising choice in content consumption?  I get how this is disruptive to current business models and how media companies might not be thrilled at having to be more creative to earn attention and loyalty, but consumers should be celebrating not labeling and journalists should get on board.

Text During a Movie! Here's the First Trailer for 'APP,' a Film That Wants You to Keep Your Phone ON

Text During a Movie! Here's the First Trailer for 'APP,' a Film That Wants You to Keep Your Phone ON | Machinimania | Scoop.it

Via The Digital Rocking Chair
Henrik Safegaard - Cloneartist's insight:

Usually moviegoers are instructed to turn off their smartphones while watching a film, but with "App," the new Dutch thriller directed by Bobby Boermans, viewers are encouraged to keep their phones on in order to experience the second-screen content.


As the first film made with the intentional inclusion of content on a second, mobile screen, "App" relies on an app, IRIS, which is equipped with sonic technology that triggers additional content during the movie.


Though it's not required for viewing the movie, using the second screen adds layers to the big-screen narrative.


The audience will be advised to leave their devices on their laps while watching the film. When there is additional content available on the second screen, their devices will vibrate.

That’s the idea behind the upcoming social film series presented by Intel and Toshiba, and other brands want in.

How to find an audience for your indie film

How to find an audience for your indie film | Machinimania | Scoop.it

Frank Rose:  "It's never been easy to market an indie film—but in a blockbuster universe, getting people to care about a low-budget production devoid of stars and lacking the enormous, built-in fan base of The Dark Knight or The Hunger Games can seem all but impossible."


Via The Digital Rocking Chair
Henrik Safegaard - Cloneartist's insight:

Frank says: "Your community are those people who want your film to succeed as much as you do, and are willing to do anything and everything they can do to help it get there. They are the people who are willing to spend their Saturday afternoon putting up posters for you in their local towns. They are the ones who can’t wait to meet others who share a similar passion for your project. The real value of community is that these are the people who will tell ten others to go see your movie. And there’s nothing more powerful (and inexpensive) than lever­aging the passion of your community."

Luca Brigada's curator insight, March 18, 2013 6:56 PM

"Ideally before any show begins production we'll sit down with our TV development team, the show's creators and our marketing and digital teams to kick around social ideas and discuss what we think makes the most sense for that particular show. We focus on ideas that complement the show's content, that will have a wide reach and that are technically feasible to achieve.

Our major emphasis is that any social TV content has to feel organic to the audience and authentic to the show, not like it's a force fit, because that's not fun for anyone. We'll discuss dozens of ideas and then hone in on the one that makes the most sense. Sometimes that's a variation on something we've done before, but most often it's something that no one has tried before. Those are the most gratifying."

Tina Stock's curator insight, February 3, 2013 10:33 AM

A couple of comments about this article:


1) We gotta find a better term than "binge viewing" to describe the phonomena of vwatching multiple hours of a single tv series.  We don't call it binge reading when we read a complete book during a single week-end, it's just reading.  And, as a life-long reader, I can testify to the fact that binge viewing provides the same satisfaction that was previously only received when reading: complete immersion in a story, a culture, a character or an event.  So, instead of binge viewing, let's call it "immersive viewing."


2) Immersive viewing is changing advertising.  Consumers who subscribe to a viewing service (Netflix) or buy a DVD series don't want to be interrupted by commercials.  An obvious fact, but important to highlight because commercials are one way in which the entertainment industry generates profit on this content.  No commercials, less profit - UNLESS, "commercials" simply become part of the content.


When advertising goes from interuption to integration everyone profits:

> the audience is exposed to commercially available products or services within the context of a story that they value

> the "advertiser" reaches their audience during periods of attentiveness and concentration

> the content producers are able to make a livelihood from creating beautiful stories. 


Immersive viewing is driving the adoption of integrated advertising, which will lay the foundation for t-commerce.  And, I think it will all be here faster than we expect.

De term 'Binge-viewing' is eigenlijk wel grappig: net als het achteroverslaan van ettelijke kratten bier en wodka ineen zuipkeet comazuipen heet, is het kijken van een hele serie op een dag een vorm van comakijken. Wij doen het in ieder geval regelmatig en er is geen betere manier om de boze buitenwereld buiten te sluiten dan dat. Wat vind jij?
