Understanding “Audiences” in Transmedia & Web Series»

Understanding “Audiences” in Transmedia & Web Series» | Digital Cinema - Transmedia | Scoop.it

I once described myself as “the hardest hardcore player who ever cored it hard” after my experience with Conspiracy for Good, a large scale interactive transmedia property that took to the streets of London back in the summer of 2010.

 

Recognized for my ability to perform a supportive role to the unfolding narrative during the alternate reality game portion of Conspiracy for Good, I was flown in to the UK for the live events (along with another hard core player) where it was felt I could bridge the gap as an ambassador between newcomers on the ground running and the “story so far.”

 

Oftentimes both media and other players alike assumed I was part of the theatrical production, but I had as much insight to “what came next” as did the next player. I was armed, however, with the four month preceding backstory that helped contextualized the characters we were interacting with and our missions. And, being gregarious by nature, I have a unique ability to quickly include and activate new ones unsure of exactly ‘what the hell was going on.’

Katie Chase's curator insight, December 5, 2013 9:55 AM

This defeats the purpose of going to the movie theater entirely. It does not make sense to have everyone in the audience bring their tablet to the screening to be able to interact. When everyone in the theater is on a tablet, who is actually watching the film? Audience interactions are a great idea but they are not appropriate for places such as movie theaters. –Aellise Czupryna

More on the changing role of the viewer, this time from the perspective of Walking Dead etc.

Hans Heesterbeek's curator insight, September 16, 2013 12:26 AM

What we can learn from this chat with Gale Anne Hurd is that:

Storytelling today means not only telling but even listeningThrough ancillary elements of the project you can have useful information about the viewersSocial networks sentiment is a true source of information better than any researchViewers join the storytelling and in a near future will become storytellers

Viewership is as changing as storytelling and rules must be broken even when the most experienced producers are attempting to tell the “perfect story”.

Dr. Pamela Rutledge's curator insight, September 13, 2013 1:20 PM

#Psych note: storytelling is one of the most powerful ways to change beliefs and behavior that are the foundation for social roles.  Transmedia and other immersive narratives can expand gender roles in ways that traditional media can't.  From Cate McQuillen: "There’s such a need for a girl who’s not a princess."  I would rephrase w/what transmedia delivers: "there's such a need to experience being a girl (or being around a girl) who is not a princess."

'Who’s Watching and Why

 

The data from YouTube Analytics reveals something else is happing. The number one reason people click onTime Expired is as a suggested video. YouTube suggests our film to people who have been watching other feature-length films, often of questionable copyright status. These films don’t always have much in common with Time Expired, but they tend to be newish features with a mainstream sensibility. In other words, YouTube’s algorithms are connecting us with a global audience channel-surfing for movies. Our second biggest traffic source is searches with strings like “Hollywood”, “full movies”, and “comedy”. Most viewers aren’t searching for our film by name. They’re just looking for a movie to watch.'

Romance and Classical Studies - Michigan State University : Valerie Morignat Talk

Romance and Classical Studies - Michigan State University : Valerie Morignat Talk | Digital Cinema - Transmedia | Scoop.it

In this talk, Valérie Morignat examines a double phenomenon that is inherent in the expansion of cyberculture: the progressive weakening of frontiers between the real, virtual and fictional worlds, and the emergence of an ecosystem of alternative realities. 

 

Three decades of interactive arts resulted in the development of persistent, reactive and sometimes autopoïetic environments populated with intelligent agents.  By analyzing these settings, Morignat proposes the innovative notion of “mesonarrativity” designating a narrativity that is “ecologically situated”, springing up from within events, and deploying itself as an “environment”.  This narrativity can be found in the fields of Video Games, Virtual Worlds, immersion and interactive cinema or yet still the experiences authorized by neuronal interfaces. 

 

More recently, the expansion of the Social Web, the digitization of the world and the consumption of mobile content, turned the art of fiction into a consensual hallucination seeking the conquest of the Real.  Combining the codes of cinema, television writing, fan culture, game theories and the intelligence of social networks, Transmedia Storytelling emerges indeed as a paradigm of cybercultural revolution. In this expanding universe, Creative Industries are innovating: TV programs transcend their frames and Cinema characters live as nomads within a meta-narrative woven into social networks and mobile applications.  Every media, every base of the transmediated story becomes a fully-fledged narrative agent. 

 

It will be shown that through the emergence of Transmedia, the second age of Media Convergence is well underway, announcing a media symbiosis that will transform fictional worlds into veritable interactive ecosystems.
