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

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..."

Rise of the mobile-first social network: US stats

Rise of the mobile-first social network: US stats | Tracking Transmedia | Scoop.it
The majority of social media sites are seeing far more traffic and time spent coming from mobile devices than from desktops.

Dr. Pamela Rutledge's curator insight, April 9, 7:20 PM

You've probably noticed, but mobile devices have smaller screens than desktops and laptops (at least currently).  This means that producers have to consider a host of design issues.  "Mobile friendly" isn't enough.  Content has to be created to be brain-friendly to ensure usability and engagement.   Usability and engagement are not the same thing.

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."..."

A fact-based 5 part interactive web series exploring the impending threat of cyberwarfare.
You never know who is in control.

"netwars / out of control"

• Makes it concrete: Battlegrounds – virtual and hidden – but real.

• Is based on actual facts, told in different formats, and explains not only what could happen but also what is already happening even today.

• The fact-based perspective of this crossmedia project marks a world first: With TV DOCUMENTARY, INTERACTIVE WEB DOC, INTERACTIVE GRAPHIC NOVEL APP, E-BOOK, AUDIO-BOOK and TV SERIES.


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.

Dr. Pamela Rutledge's curator insight, April 16, 9:13 AM

Jane Goodall is the poster child for generativity --  innovating approaches to conservation and education and, by the way, changing how we do 'aging'--redefinition, reeducation, and 'repurposing' (i.e. finding new ways to pursue purpose and meaning).  I want to be like her when I grow up.  On her 80th birthday, Goodall launched a MOOC in participatory mapping.  She believes shared knowledge and mapping skills are ways for people, especially young people, to discover where they can make a difference in their own communities.  Goodall praised Google, saying the company was "helping us [The Goodall Institute] so much with our technology and our tablets and getting the field staff to monitor their own forests -- it's changed the way we do conservation"
