Wow! Joss Whedon's new film skips the cinema, heads straight to Vimeo

Wow! Joss Whedon's new film skips the cinema, heads straight to Vimeo | Tracking Transmedia | Scoop.it
Well, at least it's not Daily Motion.


Joss Whedon just surprised fans at the Tribeca Film Festival by pulling a Beyoncé and releasing his new movie online, with no prior warning.

Paranormal love story In Your Eyes premiered at Tribeca and as a $5 Vimeo rental at the same time, meaning that many of the film’s first reviews came from Internet commenters rather than professional movie critics. Available with subtitles in Japanese, Spanish, French, German and Portuguese, the aim seems to be to make the movie as easy to watch as possible. As in, you don’t even have to get out of bed..."

Tribeca Film Festival: Jane Rosenthal on the Future of Film and Why Story Still Matters

Tribeca Film Festival: Jane Rosenthal on the Future of Film and Why Story Still Matters | Tracking Transmedia | Scoop.it
We talk to Tribeca Film Festival co-founder and CEO Jane Rosenthal about how the festival has embraced technology and new forms of storytelling.


"Do you think you'll continue every year with this idea of innovation and that every year you'll seek out what's new and innovative?

Well, you're curious about how to tell stories, so last year the Vine app was brand new and I was fascinated with "Can you tell a story in six seconds?" And now this year it's evolved to people who are using and creating, and some of them are real artists. This year,  we're doing our music challenge, which is a non-linear platform, and I think there's ways to tell stories in a non-linear way, so go take a look at Interlude, and at what they're doing with Treehouse format. It's totally seamless. So new musicians have grasped this, and they want to do non-linear music, because then people can share it in different ways, and watch the music video over and over again. For narrative films, we're going to have a film at the festival which I haven't seen, it's not even finished yet, called "Possibilia" and that's by the Daniels, these young guys out of Emerson. They're called the Daniels, not because they're related but because they're both named Daniel, and that's a non-linear comedy. So I've played with it as they've been making it and I haven't seen the final product, but I'm excited by all these different ways of telling stories..."

Tangible Storytelling Display Offers A New Way To Experience History At Jewish Museum | The Creators Project | Tracking Transmedia | Scoop.it

Seamless, minimalist storytelling with a hi-tech jolt...


Macrofilm is a simple-smooth interface designed to display information quickly and beautifully, while circumventing the oversaturated use of touchscreens we've seen in the past decade (no fingerprint smudges at this installation!). The display is controlled by a large, forcefully tangible scroll wheel, which propels facts, images, and stories across the screen. The screen is a film-like ribbon, about 9m long, which arcs upward to the left and right of the scroll wheel. As you scroll, the image on each frame changes, telling complex, compelling stories with a minimalist aesthetic..."

Visit Postwar Vancouver in Tribeca Film Festival's transmedia storyworld Circa 1948. Stan Douglas & Loc Dao (NFB)

Visit Postwar Vancouver in Tribeca Film Festival's transmedia storyworld Circa 1948. Stan Douglas & Loc Dao (NFB) | Tracking Transmedia | Scoop.it
Step back into time through a new transmedia storyworld called Circa 1948, debuted yesterday at the Tribeca Film Festival Storyscapes, open to the public today and available on iTunes App Store for free.
siobhan-o-flynn's insight:

Very very very cool


Quick Facts 

•    By pushing the limits of 3D rendering on the tablet, using binaural sound with touch and gyroscope-driven navigation modes, and running it all on an independent, Canadian-made, open-source rendering engine to control what is essentially an art experience, Circa 1948 distinguishes itself as a truly groundbreaking work. 
•    The online site creates an entry point to the project and serves as a primer to a unique storytelling experience of gentrification and power in post war Vancouver. 
•    The interactive installation at the Tribeca Film Festival allows Storyscapes audiences to literally step into the past and experience this immersive virtual reality on a larger scale. The live launch event will feature Stan Douglas and members of the NFB team unveiling the work. 
•     Circa 1948 was co-created by Douglas and Loc Dao, Executive Producer/Creative Technologist for the NFB. Other key NFB team members include producers Selwyn Jacob and Dana Dansereau and project director Kelly Richard Fennig.

Extraordinary. Leviathan: The Future Of Storytelling | The Creators Project | Tracking Transmedia | Scoop.it

"Considering a future wherein cinematic experiences are participatory, audiences would interact with narratives as if they were concurrently films and video games.


"Leviathan" points towards a future in which video games and cinema are fused in order to create new experiences. And while the integrated world of "Leviathan" is impressive in its own right, it also illustrates that folkloric practices will continue to be revolutionized in the near future. "It's really a space that you can hardly guess where those stories and where those experiences are gonna take us," says McDowell." "We're really moving rapidly into a new narrative space."..."

siobhan-o-flynn's insight:

From the site: NETWARS – THERE IS NOTHING VIRTUAL ABOUT THIS REALITY


Within a few minutes after a nationwide blackout, life in the metropolises collapses. Famines, lootings and riots follow. It bears resemblance to a scenario of a nuclear warfare movie. Yet, you don’t need a bomb to induce such a catastrophe. Merely a computer would be sufficient.

The digital war affects every one of us, and it’s happening right now as we speak.
