Sherlock Isn't the Fan-Friendly Show You Think It Is

Sherlock Isn't the Fan-Friendly Show You Think It Is | Stuff that Tweaks | Scoop.it

Asil's insight:

As friendly as that fan-creator relationship may seem, it’s actually a delicate thing. And in the end, Zubernis and Larsen say, it’s mostly artifice. “[The relationship] seems a lot more reciprocal and closer than it is, which is an artifact of the way social media, especially Twitter, makes fans feel,” says Zubernis. “I always stay on Twitter when a Supernatural episode is airing, and the actors and the writers and directors are usually on [Twitter], and I see what it does to fans when somebody answers their tweet. There’s a need, I think, to feel like, ‘They’re listening to me; I’m important.’ That’s a normal psychological response, but it’s not actually true; it’s wishful thinking. It’s a constructed intimacy that’s not really intimate at all.”

Devon Maloney:  "Regardless of how much influence fans may seem to wield or how close the fans and creators may seem in a today’s era of meet-and-greets and panels, a chasm still exists between the people who make shows and the people who ardently love them."

It's all about sales. In the end it is phoney and leaves me feeling it was all meaningless, empty and that I have just been used. Selling autographs is just one tiny step away from the social media puffing up being done these days.

Mark Wilson:  "Cleverbot is a brilliant piece of AI. Its filmmaking? Not quite as bizarre as French New Wave."

Henrik Safegaard - Cloneartist's curator insight, February 16, 2013 4:27 AM

Filmmaker Chris Wilson recently gave Cleverbot a job--to help him write a movie. You’ll see that the seemingly simplest task, like thinking up a character’s name, can be a totally foreign concept to Cleverbot one moment, while another moment, the AI becomes lucid, critiquing Wilson’s own taste with highly specific scrutiny.

 

I couldn't stop laughing, it's pretty funny. 

Click abowe to watch the movie.

On Creating in a Transmedia Universe

On Creating in a Transmedia Universe | Stuff that Tweaks | Scoop.it
“My plan was to not only give [girls] media but also give them real-time activities that they could do off line…”
Jan Bozarth’s Fairy Godmother Academy began as an eight book series for Random House, but quickly expanded into multiple formats, including live events, music, and even its own dance movement. Here she explains her philosophy of creation, or rather, re-creation.
Editorial by Jan Bozarth

Between fiction and reality: the continuous back and forth for fan communities 3/3

Between fiction and reality: the continuous back and forth for fan communities 3/3 | Stuff that Tweaks | Scoop.it

Aurore Gallarino: "The storytelling fan sometimes goes beyond the fictional environment when they don’t just write follow-ups or missing scenes for a work but go beyond that and create content as if it was straight out of the universe."

 

DRC: When fan communities embrace the principle of storytelling 1/3 can be found here and Do it yourself: fan community “pirate” productions 2/3 can be found here.

The heroine's journey

The heroine's journey | Stuff that Tweaks | Scoop.it

"...the mechanics of choice and self-sacrifice in games, and the fact that those often play out in culturally gendered ways. For the lead character of Fallout 3 -- who can be played as female, but was rather transparently originally written as male -- sixty hours of shooting people in the head for three bottles of Nuka Cola can be triumphantly redeemed by a single self-immolation. For the lead females of many, many casual games, sacrifice and service are the only game there is."

Joe Berkowitz:  "Filmmakers like Michael Bay are usually interested only in going bigger--trying to top themselves with set pieces and spectacles that succeed through excess. In the technology space, however, there is a constant race to make things smaller."

Thanks for posting.

Digital comics is a medium that is still finding its footing. 2012 was a banner year, and saw the launch of new and progressive approaches to exploring the seemingly infinite possibilities of the digital canvas. One such launch was Comic Book Think Tank, spearheaded by Ron Perazza and Daniel Govar.

Geeking Out About Storytelling with Joss Whedon

Geeking Out About Storytelling with Joss Whedon | Stuff that Tweaks | Scoop.it

Charlie Jane Anders: "Joss Whedon is in the unique position of being both a cult icon and a huge mainstream creator, thanks to projects like Firefly and The Avengers. But both halves of his success spring from his ability to create addictive stories, that leave you desperate to know what happens next."
