David Wesson's Digital Culture:  The future of TV is social & the revolution is coming! | Pervasive media + other Petty Perversions | Scoop.it

"Named last year as one of the ten most important emerging technologies by the MIT Technology Review social TV is fast rising as one of the hottest topics since group buying...."

 

"6 Every brand to become a media company-With Social technologies it has never been easier to produce your own content quickly and easily. Two great examples of brands that have transformed themselves into modern day media companies are Billabong & Red Bull who are now competing with more traditional media companies in the space. 

The opportunity going forward is for social TV to proliferate to the enterprise sector in the next few years. A great example of this exists here is Sydney in the shape of Evo TV who have built a media company off the back of the financial services sector not exactly renowned for its willingness to invest in the social media. Their ‘no more practice’ show was the first ever reality TV show for financial advisers with over 50,000 views over the entire series."

Transmedia Storytelling May Become BC’s Goldmine - Techvibes.com | Pervasive media + other Petty Perversions | Scoop.it
The art of storytelling really hasn’t changed through the centuries: human vs. human, human vs. nature—the foundation remains the same.

 

...This is the third Merging Media conference led by Executive Director Christine Lim-Labossière, who is working with the Canadian Media Production Association to create unique partnership between themselves and The StoryWorld 2012 Conference in Hollywood. This partnership is a joint effort to grow strong transmedia communities and build a lively and connected cross-media industry on the West Coast.  

 

This continued building of a creative community has huge significance to the BC economy. Considering therecent report suggesting BC leads the country in people working for startups, the creation of BC base intellectual property, (transmedia generated IP) will create new opportunities, will create new companies, and will create new jobs....'

Why are broadcasters and service providers making dedicated 2nd screen and associated social TV so confusing for users at the moment?

 

In a world when all the statistics on simultaneous tablet/mobile and TV are indicating a massive increase in the behaviour, why are TV broadcasters and 3rd party providers creating 2nd screen services making very poor experiences for audiences? Can content owners and TV broadcasters make the most of this opportunity or have they lost the battle already? Will Twitter, Facebook, GetGlue or other dedicated 3rd party services run the show and begin own the TV communities that spring up at each episode? What are the best approaches to creating 2nd screen but hasn’t all of this been done before?

Fantastic Detailed Post on Future of Engagement #6: Social Curation

Fantastic Detailed Post on Future of Engagement #6: Social Curation | Pervasive media + other Petty Perversions | Scoop.it

"Media, organizations and brands curate content to drive social engagement. What is Social Curation?

 

Social curation involves aggregating, organizing and sharing content created by others to add context, narrative and meaning to it. Artists, changemakers and organizations use social curation to showcase the full range of conversations around a topic, add more nuance to their own original content, and set the stage to crowdsource content from their community members.

The rise of social curation can be attributed to three broad trends. First, people are creating a constant stream of social media content, including updates, location check-ins, blog posts, photos and videos. Second, people are using their social networks to filter relevant content, by following others who share similar interests. Third, social media platforms are also curating content, by giving curation tools to users (YouTube playlists, Flickr galleries, Amazon lists, Foodspotting guides), using editors and volunteers (YouTube Politics, Tumblr Tags) or using algorithms (YouTube Trends, Auto-generated YouTube channels, LinkedIn Today).

 

As a result, a number of niche social curation platforms have emerged to enable people to curate different types of content — including links, photos, sounds and videos — into boards (Pinterest), trees (Pearltrees (video)), pages (Scoop.it (video)) and narratives (Storify (video), Cowbird). Some social curation platforms are focused on specific niches; for instance, Learni.st(video) helps people curate lessons and Fancy helps people discover cool things to buy...."

Interview: Guillermo del Toro Talks 'Mama,' 'Pacific Rim,' 'Crimson Peak' & What Happened To His Disney Double Dare You Shingle | Pervasive media + other Petty Perversions | Scoop.it

This weekend the new horror film  "Mama" opens in theaters nationwide. It's the spooky tale of a pair of young girls who are abandoned in a cabin in the woods for several years. When they are finally discovered and returned to society, to live with their kindly uncle (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau from "Game Of Thrones") and his punkish girlfriend (Jessica Chastain), something else comes along with them… a spectral figure the girls name "Mama." In other words: perfect material for producer Guillermo del Toro to shepherd to the big screen....

 

What is it about ghosts that constantly fascinates you?

You know, amongst the characters in supernatural fiction, one of the ones I've been the most intrigued about is ghosts. I've done "Devil's Backbone," produced "The Orphanage," read every ghost story that you need to read for the curriculum, everybody that is noteworthy. And I think it's steeped in tradition. In England they used to tell great ghost stories during Christmas and I really find that it is, of the themes in horror, the one that invites themes of reflection. You reflect about what it is to be human, what it is to be alive, so on and so forth."

I agree with many of her predictions... what do you think?

Back in the Star Wars days, it seemed so geeky and counter-culture to engage with your favorite stories (writing fan fiction, etc.). It's amazing to see how fan involvement has evolved alongside technology (I usually have a tablet or phone or laptop in hand watching Game of Thrones!). 

As a producer of children's media, I do wonder what this means for kids -- at what point is it healthy and reasonable for kids to do this sort of multitasking?

Quote "

I don’t think we’ve quite tapped into just how big this type of storytelling can become. For instance, the Lizzie Bennet audience on YouTube has garnered almost 40 million total views. We average around 300k views per episode, an audience many network TV shows would kill to have. There are still challenges to more widespread adoption of transmedia, but with audience numbers like this, I don’t think there’s any more room to debate if there’s a demand for this kind of storytelling.

I think there’s a recognition and an acceptance that digital and internet-enabled storytelling is the way of the future.
