How should television be defined nowadays?

How should television be defined nowadays? | Tracking Transmedia | Scoop.it
Now I am inclined to define television as any moving picture — at all — watched on any sort of screen not located within a movie theater. From a 30-second clip of a baby wombat to a fancy long-arc drama starring people whose other job is being a movie star, whether it was made by unionized professionals or rank amateurs, for fun or for profit, for crass reasons or noble purposes, art, garbage or garbage-art — I am happy to call it all TV. Whether you are shelling out for a full menu of premium channels and streaming sites or just consuming what you can pick up off the Internet for free, there is more to watch, and worth watching, than any reasonable person could ask for, or want.

Sunburn charts a deadly path through the cosmos

Sunburn charts a deadly path through the cosmos | Tracking Transmedia | Scoop.it
It's unusual for a videogame to accept death as positively as Sunburn does. You're the Captain of a space crew that lost their ship to an asteroid collision, and are therefore without a way to return home. And so this crew conclude that dying together at their own command, rather than alone and at the behest of their oxygen supply, is the better of two options. So you jump and jetpack between planets to tether the crew together before making the final jump into a fiery star. There's a satisfying thud, drawn out by a slight pause, every time a body collides with the sun's surface, like repeatedly slamming a car door, giving it a feeling you want to repeat.

We finally get to see actors Bertie Carvel and Eddie Marsan as Strange and Norrell, respectively, in the BBC's adaptation of the best-selling novel by Susanna Clarke, and they look outstanding. Alas, they only released this one promotional pic, but we had to share it because we're absolutely salivating for this series.

The Topics Dystopian Films Won't Touch

The Topics Dystopian Films Won't Touch | Tracking Transmedia | Scoop.it

'When the first Hunger Games film decided to cast black actors in the roles of Cinna and Rue, many fans of Collins’s book (who had imagined the characters differently despite the novel’s clear description of their “dark brown” skin color) were upset, but they still went to see the film in droves. In the sequel, Jeffrey Wright was cast as Beetee, who is in fact described as having “ashen” skin by Collins...'

Report DocLab Interactive Conference | IDFA

Report DocLab Interactive Conference | IDFA | Tracking Transmedia | Scoop.it
On Sunday, the one-day DocLab Interactive Conference, one of the highlights of the DocLab: Immersive Reality program, came full circle with valuable lessons about how the internet lost its innocence, and how pure escapism is now an art-form-to-be with virtual reality on the cusp of becoming a medium accessible to everyone.

The passionate opening words by Monique Simard, head of the SODEC Foundation in Canada, rang through the entire day that followed. As the eminence grise of interactive storytelling she firmly stated we can no longer ignore the convergence of disciplines and genres if we want to change the imbalance in financing for interactive formats. Although everyone present at the conference likely understood DocLab’s joking question if the internet has lost its innocence, digital culture is still treated as an exception by most public funders.
