Debbie Elicksen 's curator insight, February 7, 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?

Book publishers turn to cross-media storytelling - Trendscape Blog - Industry Research - About - Canada Media Fund

Book publishers turn to cross-media storytelling - Trendscape Blog - Industry Research - About - Canada Media Fund | Digital Cinema - Transmedia | Scoop.it

"Think about publishing and you think about reading, but not about watching, interacting or playing. Producers tend to seek out publishing companies only when looking to acquire the film or TV rights to a particular book. However, radical changes and exciting developments have been afoot in the publishing world—arguably more so than in any other media industry—and these developments warrant closer scrutiny.

It’s a given now that audiences have more and more control over where, when and how they consume content—be that as readers, viewers or players. With multiple devices available to consumers to access stories, forward-thinking publishers are carving out new opportunities and, consequently, new business models in response to audience expectations.

 

In 2011, e-book sales surpassed print sales, and this served as a wake-up call to many industry veterans who believed ‘digital’ would never take off in publishing. A similar attitude had been mirrored in other creative industries. Who could have predicted YouTube’s $1.65 billion sale to Google or the spectaculardemise of EMI? Traditional business models had broken and old and new players alike had to be nimble on their feet in order to survive..."

Simon Staffans's curator insight, January 30, 3:07 AM

A look at how the grass roots of producers are changing the face of the media industry in Singapore - even if it's taking time: "There is no doubt that Singapore is about to become a pioneering hub for transmedia in Asia. However, this development is not ignited by government initiatives, festival labs or academic programs. It is a movement solely headed by a small but growing group of independent creators that circumvent the corporate gate-keeping mentality by offering integrated strategies execs cannot refuse."

'Gamification': The Way to Revive Reality TV

'Gamification': The Way to Revive Reality TV | Digital Cinema - Transmedia | Scoop.it

"Last year, Asahi TV Corp. and content-fingerprinting specialist Vobile Japan partnered on an unusual experiment for an unscripted primetime series that blurred the line between contestant and audience. When the “Survivor”-themed format featured an on-air personality harpooning fish, viewers were invited to use their smartphones to do some spearing of their own, competing for points by snapping photos of the catch onscreen.

 

The point was to hook not just fish but also viewers in the treacherous waters of live TV, where ad-skipping DVRs and a sea of competitors make achieving decent ratings increasingly challenging.

It’s an odd example, but one that demonstrates the direction TV networks are going to have to go with reality TV to preserve the prime value of that first window, where most revenue is made. This gamification of reality TV is a trend no one has seen coming, yet it feels inevitable: leveraging second screens to bring back an urgency to watching that first screen...."
