Transmedia: Platform Agnostic Storytelling

Transmedia: Platform Agnostic Storytelling | Pop Culture in Education | Scoop.it

"It transcends a single medium by taking the notion of breaking up a narrative arc into multiple discrete chunks or installments and spreading those disparate ideas or story chunks across multiple media platforms.

 

...Heroes on NBC is often cited as a great pop-culture example of transmedia in practice.

 

Mimicking the aesthetic style and storytelling conventions of American comic books (using multi-episode story arcs that build upon a larger, more encompassing arc), the series used digital technologies to deepen the audience experience and carry the story through various mediums, ultimately making the characters more compelling and memorable."
