The Digital Rocking Chair's curator insight, January 22, 2014 6:43 PM


Jennifer M. Wood:  "While Hollywood insiders talk about which big-budget studio movies made and lost the most money in 2013, there’s a far more interesting number to consider: 3,000,000. That’s how many people backed crowdfunding projects for a total of $481,788,567 last year — and that’s on Kickstarter alone."

This is another article that talks about the issue of Online anonymity, taking more of the insight that people are able to "display the less appealing parts of their nature." by being anonymous online.

Disney appoints a group to determine a new, official Star Wars canon

Disney appoints a group to determine a new, official Star Wars canon | Digital Cinema - Transmedia | Scoop.it
The Expanded Universe as we knew it will soon be no more. 

Disney has created a special committee whose job it will be to figure out what is and isn't part of a completeStar Warscanon — meaning all the EU material created over the years will be judged, and either become official or deemed invalid.

 

Furthermore, this means at some point all new Star Wars spin-offs will matter, because they will all be official. I don't know how I feel about that...."

Looks like Disney is getting that storyworld in order! let's see what happens when Disney enforces an 'official' canon - will this play well? create a backlash?

What an eye-opener this case study has been. This Canadian franchise, launched 1979 (that's 2 years shy of Star Wars) has been both groundbreaking in content (numerous firsts), and consistently creative in developing transmedia & convergent content to connect with a fiercely dedicated trans-generational fan base!

Immersive Storytelling for The Lost Children Pt. 2 | Filmmaker Magazine

Immersive Storytelling for The Lost Children Pt. 2 | Filmmaker Magazine | Digital Cinema - Transmedia | Scoop.it

by Mark Harris

on Jan 2, 2013

"Part 1 of this series laid out the overall plan for The Lost Children Premier event at Film Society of Lincoln Center in January 2013. In this post, I'm going to focus on some thinking behind the live immersive portion of the event.

 

As I’ve been working on this, I’ve been thinking a lot about this term “immersive.” Any great piece of art can be immersive. Any time you get sucked into an amazing movie to the point that you forget you’re actually watching a movie, that is immersive. I remember having that experience with No Country for Old Men..."

Hollywood studios 2013 performance review

"As 2013 comes to an end, Hollywood studios are reviewing their last year's performance in theatrical. For the first time ever, Warner Brothers surpassed $3bn for international box office, according to data from Variety and Screen Daily. With total revenues at $5.04bn, of which $3.14bn from international sales and $1.90bn from domestic, Warner topped the list among other Hollywood studios.  Warner had a total of 19 new releases in 2013, and The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug was the biggest hit with $653m box office. Other top performers include Gravity ($398.7m, and still on release), Man of Steel ($371.8m) and Pacific Rim ($305.8m).

 

Disney ranked second with a total box office of $4.73bn worldwide, and also crossed the $3bn for the first time in international revenue ($3.01bn from overseas and $1.72bn from domestic). Disney actually had a very impressive year, given the fact that it only had 10 releases in 2013, significantly fewer than Warner. Disney's highest grossing film was Iron Man 3, which generated $1.21bn globally and was also the number one film in the whole industry in 2013...."
