The power of storytelling, and the use of stories to create an effect, no matter if it's a true or fictive story, simple or extravagant. The principle for storytelling is that when interior design is telling a story, it's more memorable than regular advertising. Thus, it is also more successful in attracting customers -- since the customers themselves will be advertising and spreading the word when they leave. He will dwell on Umeå, and which forgotten stories from Umeå that are worthy to tell the world.

Why 2013 Was a Banner Year For Documentaries, And 2014 Looks Even Better

Why 2013 Was a Banner Year For Documentaries, And 2014 Looks Even Better | Digital Cinema - Transmedia | Scoop.it

"A banner year for documentary" is what you’re likely to have read in more than a few year-end overviews in recent weeks, and not without reason: 2013 was a great year for documentaries, though also one that drew attention to the ways in which our (mis)use of that word tends to shape and shift our expectations. “Documentary,” after all, is a formalist construction, a lens that can clarify as much as contort the manner in which we view a work and its responsibility to its subject and its viewers.

This thought sums up nicely what documentaries have been exploring over the past few years and moving forward:

"Aesthetically and ideologically, the line between fiction and documentary has never been blurred quite so often, and quite so effectively."

On the very physical side of transmedia, a side I find tickles creative nerves quite brilliantly. What we're doing is basically "explicitly asking the reader to participate in the construction and maintenance of an illusion.".

'Transmedia audiences and television fiction: A comparative approach between Skins (UK) and El Barco (Spain)' by @margrandio

Abstract:
This article aims to analyze the transmedia narratives and the levels of involvement with their audience of two different television series. In the Spanish and British markets, TV shows like El Barco (2011, present) or Skins (2007-2011) show a particular transmedia narrative and audience interaction with the fictional plot. Following the contributions to the field of three authors (Beeson, 2005; Davidson 2008; Scolari, 2009), this paper proposes a methodology for analysing these two transmedia narratives and audience involvement with them along four vectors: 1) The relationship between story and medium, 2) Narrative aspects (setting, characters, theme and plot), 3) Intertextuality, and 4) Distribution and accessibility to the audience. Using this methodology, this article gives an overview of two of the most popular television fictions with transmedia narratives in the British and Spanish markets. The analysis of these two markets shows the encouraging future for transmedia narratives in the current television industry, while concluding that the effectiveness of the expansion of these fictional universes appears when finding and fulfilling their audiences’ hopes of engagement.

Forget Franchises: Why 2014 Will Be Hollywood's Year of the 'Shared Universe'

Forget Franchises: Why 2014 Will Be Hollywood's Year of the 'Shared Universe' | Digital Cinema - Transmedia | Scoop.it
This story first appeared in the Jan. 10 issue of The Hollywood Reporter magazine.

 

'Hollywood has come down with a bad case of Marvel envy. Having watched how the studio launched Iron Man in 2008 as the first of five linked movies (The Incredible Hulk, Iron Man 2, Thor and Captain America: The First Avenger) that led to 2012's The Avengers (which grossed $1.5 billion worldwide), suddenly every studio is trying to create a world of characters who can be brought together in a mega movie. Forget franchise, "shared universe" is the hot new buzz phrase of 2014.

 

Sony in December hired five superstar writers --Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci, Jeff Pinkner,Ed Solomon and Drew Goddard -- to come up with more Spider-Man movies beyond May's The Amazing Spider-Man 2. They face a big challenge. While Sony licenses Spider-Man from Marvel, Spidey isn't surrounded by fellow heroes like the Avengers. However, the Spider-Man universe does have a deep pool of villains, such as Venom and Sinister Six, whom Sony hopes are compelling enough to carry their own tentpoles....'
