Picturebooks and Transmedia Design (Part 1) - Transmedia Digest

Ensuring the media used in a transmedia project don’t “step” on each other and the overall story is the biggest challenges for storytellers.

 

...Over the few blog posts, I’m going to take a look at what we can learn from picturebooks in particular and how we can apply those lessons to the design of transmedia narratives. The principles for integrating text and images in a picturebook can be readily applied to transmedia narratives that include audio, images, and other forms of communication.

 

The traditional approach to using text and images is for one to be dominent and the other to play a supporting role. In their book Children’s Picturebooks: The Art of Visual Storytelling authors Martin Salisbury and Morag Styles note:

 

In most contexts, illustration provides a visual accompaniment to words, a prompt or aid to the imagination that aims to augment the overall experience of the book. (pg. 89)...

T is for Transmedia…

T is for Transmedia… | Transmedia 4 Kids: Creating Content For Children | Scoop.it
cynthia jabar's insight:

Jenkins explains how "transmedia encourages additive comphrension."

 

 'Like any other kind of storytelling, transmedia is something which can be done well or badly. You can be attentive to the possibilities of expanding a story in new directions or you can simply slap a logo on something and pretend like it’s part of the same franchise. Transmedia can be enriching or exploitative, can be motivated by the crudest of economic motives or shaped by the most cutting edge learning science. But, when transmedia is done well, it creates a deeply engaging, immersive experience, which multiplies the number of learning opportunities"
