!!! Prometheus, Dark Souls, And Storytelling In Video Games Vs. Film - Forbes

!!! Prometheus, Dark Souls, And Storytelling In Video Games Vs. Film - Forbes | Tracking Transmedia | Scoop.it
Storytelling in games is very different than in film. Alyssa Rosenberg flags a fascinating interview over at io9 with Prometheus screenwriter Jon Spaihts.

 

“Storytelling in games has matured tremendously in the past decade,” Spaihts tells io9′s Charlie Jane Anders. ”Some really great work has been done. But the design requirements are totally different, almost the opposite of filmic storytelling.

 

“The central character of a game is most often a cipher – an avatar into which the player projects himself or herself. The story has to have a looseness to accommodate the player’s choices. This choose-your-own adventure quality is a challenge for storytellers and, I fear, militates against art.

 

“A filmmaker is trying to make you look at something a certain way – almost to force an experience on you. Think of the legendary directors, whose perspective is the soul of their art. It’s the opposite of a sandbox world. It’s a mind-meld with a particular visionary...”

Friday Favorites: Crossmedia Steampunk Holmes

Friday Favorites: Crossmedia Steampunk Holmes | Tracking Transmedia | Scoop.it

Let’s start with the hard questions: how would you define transmedia, and why are you personally drawn to it?
RMH: ”Steampunk Holmes is actually cross-media rather than transmedia. With transmedia you are telling a single story across multiple channels.
Each channel (book, web site, twitter, call-in, etc.) delivers different perspectives on the same story. That’s not what Steampunk Holmes is all about. Steampunk Holmes is a cross-media story by which
I mean it tells the same story in completion using several different channels (web book, paper books, audio books, ebook). The primary difference is that with transmedia you are expected to engage in at
least two of the channels to fully engage the story but in cross-media you can engage with the channel of your choice to get the whole story...”

Are You Really Ready to Crowdfund?  Here Are 8 Tips from Filmmakers Who've Been There | Tracking Transmedia | Scoop.it

"We've all heard how great crowdfunding can be for filmmakers.  Some filmmakers struggle to juggle freelance gigs while they're trying to get their own film made.  A cool $20,000 gives them time away from scrounging for spare change.

 

Many low-level funders will give $25 to a film they haven't even seen yet over the $12 for a movie ticket, $8 for a digital download or $20 for a DVD, just to feel they helped a film come into being.

But in the end, is crowdfunding worth it?..."

"I am beginning to worry that Ridley Scott’s Prometheus may not be the clever piece of sci-fi we have been continuously told it will be.
Spoilers ahead.
Sure it looks very cool, but lots of the trailers seem to be giving away a bit too much making it look like a generic sci-fi horror following the same beats as the original Alien but with some added psuedo-philosophy about the origins of humanity...."

Critic's Notebook: How Spike Jonze's Doc 'Tell Them Anything You Want,' Available Online, Eulogizes Maurice Sendak and Adam Yauch | Tracking Transmedia | Scoop.it

"In the past week, the deaths of two major creative forces have sent shockwaves through the multiple generations impacted by their work. Last Friday brought the news of Beastie Boys rapper Adam Yauch succumbing to cancer; on Tuesday, children's book author Maurice Sendak, best known for "Where the Wild Things Are," passed away after a sudden stroke. In death, the achievements of both men have landed on unexpected common ground: Oscilloscope Laboratories, Yauch's indie film distribution company, released Spike Jonze's terrific documentary, "Tell Them Anything You Want: A Portrait of Maurice Sendak" on DVD; today, the company made the movie available on Hulu (you can watch it on the next page)..."
