"The science fiction classic is 20 years old. Lisa Granshaw reports on the franchise's growth and fanbase, and the buzz--and mixed feelings--surrounding its forthcoming big-screen reboot."

Camila Lorena Longo's curator insight, September 1, 2014 1:26 PM

There’s more than one reason why Stargate succeeded in keeping and growing a loyal following. Actor David Hewlett who portrayed Dr. Rodney McKay in the TV series believes one of them is timing. The Internet was growing around the time ofSG-1, giving fans a way to share their passion and spread the word.

Dan Soloman:  "There's a lot riding on the success or failure of Veronica Mars as a commercial entity--but all Rob Thomas cares about is whether or not the movie works for the fans."

Debbie Elicksen 's curator insight, February 7, 2014 7:09 PM

Interesting points in this piece. The one thing that jumps off the page for me is how the female demographic is sometimes an after-thought and carry minor roles to the male-centric story headliner of fan culture stories. When is the last time you heard of Superwoman, Spiderwoman, Batwoman, X-Women?

Do You have a story to tell ?

Great article, one of the best i have seen in a long time.

Dr. Pamela Rutledge's curator insight, May 2, 2013 2:17 AM

Brand experience is already 'transmedia,' but the opportunity with media convergence is to make it a coordinated story-based experience designed for audience participation.  Narrative = cognitive coherence and participation = stakeholders.

Charles Martini's curator insight, May 18, 2013 6:55 AM

Rachel Edidin:  "Literary publishing's uneasy relationship with fan fiction has been complicated by the realization that fandom is a huge potential market—one already stocked with both prolific authors and enthusiastic readers.  But how to tap that market is a dilemma that few publishers seem quite prepared to engage."

Devon Maloney:  "Regardless of how much influence fans may seem to wield or how close the fans and creators may seem in a today’s era of meet-and-greets and panels, a chasm still exists between the people who make shows and the people who ardently love them."

Asil's curator insight, January 26, 2014 2:41 PM

As friendly as that fan-creator relationship may seem, it’s actually a delicate thing. And in the end, Zubernis and Larsen say, it’s mostly artifice. “[The relationship] seems a lot more reciprocal and closer than it is, which is an artifact of the way social media, especially Twitter, makes fans feel,” says Zubernis. “I always stay on Twitter when a Supernatural episode is airing, and the actors and the writers and directors are usually on [Twitter], and I see what it does to fans when somebody answers their tweet. There’s a need, I think, to feel like, ‘They’re listening to me; I’m important.’ That’s a normal psychological response, but it’s not actually true; it’s wishful thinking. It’s a constructed intimacy that’s not really intimate at all.”

Laura Brown's comment, January 26, 2014 4:23 PM
It's all about sales. In the end it is phoney and leaves me feeling it was all meaningless, empty and that I have just been used. Selling autographs is just one tiny step away from the social media puffing up being done these days.
