Transmedia Storytelling May Become BC’s Goldmine - Techvibes.com | Digital Cinema - Transmedia | Scoop.it
The art of storytelling really hasn’t changed through the centuries: human vs. human, human vs. nature—the foundation remains the same.

 

...This is the third Merging Media conference led by Executive Director Christine Lim-Labossière, who is working with the Canadian Media Production Association to create unique partnership between themselves and The StoryWorld 2012 Conference in Hollywood. This partnership is a joint effort to grow strong transmedia communities and build a lively and connected cross-media industry on the West Coast.  

 

This continued building of a creative community has huge significance to the BC economy.

Op-Docs & the NFB's “A Short History of the Highrise” to debut at New York Film Festival - i-Docs

Op-Docs & the NFB's “A Short History of the Highrise” to debut at New York Film Festival - i-Docs | Digital Cinema - Transmedia | Scoop.it

'The New York Times’s Op-Docs and the National Film Board of Canada (NFB) will debut their new new immersive documentary series as part of the Film Society at Lincoln Center’s New York Film Festival Convergence program –  a showcase for storytelling that transcends a single narrative medium – on Monday, Sept. 30, at 7 p.m. ET. Following this, the series will premiere on NYTimes.com in October.

“We are greatly honored to premiere at the New York Film Festival’s showcase for cinematic innovation,” said Jason Spingarn-Koff, New York Times commissioning editor for Opinion video.  “In Op-Docs, we celebrate unique voices and creative storytelling approaches, and now we’re bringing opinion journalism to the interactive documentary form.”

The series, “A Short History of the Highrise”, tours the 2,500-year global history of vertical living and issues of social equality in an increasingly urbanised world and follows on from Writer and Director, Katrina Cizek’s previous project ‘Highrise’.  Each film is intended to evoke a chapter in a storybook, with rhyming narration, photographs brought to life with intricate animation, game play and responsive videos that create immersive, exploratory experiences. The series, which unfolds in four short, interactive films, is optimized for tablet devices, which allows viewers tp navigate the story extras and special features within the films using touch commands like swipe, pinch, pull and tap.'

 

A video trailer is available at: NYTimes.com/Highrise.

"Anna Jackson explores the world of social or second screen television and looks at a new app for local TV series The Almighty Johnsons."TV lives on!"

Hans Heesterbeek's curator insight, August 29, 2013 12:35 AM

Quote: "According to Nielson, approximately 5% of American households have abandoned their television sets, using computers, smartphones and tablets to consume TV and video content rather than watching ‘traditional TV’". Second screen increased engagement is becoming very important to those who are in the business of television. It’s now very easy for viewers to filter out traditional TV advertising, so Social TV offers valuable alternative commercial models for broadcasters and content providers" Unquote

TV is still very powerfull. We know that - 2nd screen is rising -  and in the EU we are - mine opinion- miles behind look at zeebox for instance.

Clearly we will be seeing more & more forays into Twitter:


'[Fox's President of Digital Media David] Wertheimer describes Fox's social media strategy as a combination of producing micro-content (content for a show's Twitter and other social media platforms), shareable content (which fans of a show can share on their own accounts) and driving the conversation on Twitter and elsewhere, before, during and after a show's airtime (and even between seasons). The exact combination depends on the specific show. Even shows as similar as "The Mindy Project" and "New Girl" – both comedies of related subject matter geared to the same demographic that air back-to-back – have their own particular approaches....'


'..Another product launched in May, Amplify takes this ad targeting one step further by taking TV programming and its advertisements, and repackaging it as photos, videos and other media in the viewer's Twitter feed. Twitter first started experimenting with Amplify with sports programming – with Tweets airing instant replays of big plays, ads often included. It has since expanded into the entertainment space; MTV and its sponsors used Amplify for the VMAs. Twitter has announced other partnerships with conventional channels such as A&E, FOX and BBC America as well as nontraditional content producers, including Vice, Vevo and MLB.com...'
