Dr. Pamela Rutledge's insight:

Recent prototype headsets offer great promise for narrative experience but can they also support the social side of entertainment?  Most entertainment--from gaming to films--is a shared experience physically as well as across social media.

Bryan Bishop:  "Virtual reality company Oculus has been building momentum since it launched the Kickstarter campaign for its Oculus Rift headset two years ago. At its developer conference Saturday, it launched its latest prototype — while filmmakers made a convincing argument that VR is the dawn of a completely new form of visual storytelling."

Dr. Pamela Rutledge's insight:

Google's wonderful Storytellers Ad celebrates more than storytellers.  It celebrates the fact that previously specialized knowledge is available to everyone, liberating not just creativity but the belief that we can all tell our stories and people will listen.  The ad uses the narrative from Andrew Stanton's TEDTalk on storytelling, few people explain the fundamental nature of humans as storytellers better.

Alex Billington:  '"We all love stories. We're born for them," says filmmaker Andrew Stanton (of Finding Nemo, Toy Story, Wall-E, John Carter) in this video that celebrates everyone who's ever had an idea, picked up a camera, or searched for a way to bring their story to life.'

From 'Oliver Twist' to 'Game of Thrones': Six serials and how they've deepened the art of storytelling

From 'Oliver Twist' to 'Game of Thrones': Six serials and how they've deepened the art of storytelling | Psychology of Media & Emerging Technologies | Scoop.it

Via The Digital Rocking Chair
Dr. Pamela Rutledge's insight:

Great article by Frank Rose. Of particular interest to me was the underground map showing the linkages between the various areas of storytelling.  First, I'm always interested in how stories translate into visual representation.  Second, when you look at different 'stops on the lines' you can see how quickly the world is becoming transmedia, to the point of making that term redundant or perhaps equivalent to a 'coordinated and creative use of media tools to craft and extend a story.'  We might more accurately the underground stops hubs and nodes given the interretlationships among platforms and the increasingly blurry boundaries that aren't shown.  However the subway/underground metaphor more clearly allows content to ride a type of media.  Yet Mad Men, for example, really intersects other lines because , among other things, of fan co-creation.  The map itself raises interesting questions, such as where do you define 'real world'?  Is that a marker of the story's origins or where it is experienced?  But any visual metaphor or article that gets you asking good questions is effective in my book.  And Frank is always good at that.

SXSWi Report: Liquid Journalism and Dynamic Storytelling Emerge in 2013

SXSWi Report: Liquid Journalism and Dynamic Storytelling Emerge in 2013 | Psychology of Media & Emerging Technologies | Scoop.it

Eddie Rehfeldt:  "Breaking News: the search for a better narrative format for the internet is now available. Ben Decker once said “the internet is not just another TV pipe” and this was made apparent at SXSWi in Austin last week."


Via The Digital Rocking Chair
Dr. Pamela Rutledge's insight:
The lines at SxSW definitely tell the story: this isn't just the year of the story, it's the decade of coordinated, additive and interactive storytelling across multiple media channels for everything from entertainment and branding to education and journalism. It all starts with the story.

Create compelling content for multiple devices, immersive web-based experiences from data driven stories (infographics on visual video steroids) to interactive tablet documentaries. Eddie Rehfeldts report from SXSW - "There are mind-bending interactive story approaches available right now."

Evolution of Storytelling

Dr. Pamela Rutledge's insight:

Great infographic on storytelling! Every stage of technology amplifies the  input to the brain, increasing our multi-sensory experience.  The chart says ARGs blur the line between fantasy and reality, but our ability to project emotions and presence (i.e. narrative transportation) have allowed us to blur that line from the beginning in a well-told story.

'Wearable' book allows reader to feel emotions of characters

'Wearable' book allows reader to feel emotions of characters | Psychology of Media & Emerging Technologies | Scoop.it

Via The Digital Rocking Chair
Dr. Pamela Rutledge's insight:

MIT 'wearable' book redefines multisensory media.  Interesting that article doesn't mention how they established the psychology - defining emotions, the physiological reaction of the emotions (or even how they know where the reader is on the page--maybe it's one emotion per page) but it's a stunning peek into the potential of combining technology with storytelling.  It's also another example of the importance of psychology as technology allows us to augment personal experience.  (Might even raise interesting ethical issues of impact of emotional response on different individuals.  Potential as therapeutic device to reset positive emotions.  Would it work in reverse, too?)
