Quote "Meanwhile, the viral campaign doubles as an alternate reality game (ARG). Here’s where it gets particularly trippy--app-related people you interact with on social media may turn out to be characters in the story, and you, part of the plot. “I might be in communication with a character from the story who I think is a real person,” says Arem. “I might even meet them at a Comic-Con or in the real world, and they might be in character.”

This is what I've been pitching around for ages ... Everyone Ive pitched to says things like "dude you're way ahead of your time .. You need to wait for the market to gain an understanding of transmedia first .. Yeah right!"

Trailer debuts for WikiLeaks film "The Fifth Estate" - Wikileaks complain again

Trailer debuts for WikiLeaks film "The Fifth Estate" - Wikileaks complain again | Transmedia | Scoop.it

The first trailer has been released for "The Fifth Estate," the upcoming film about the early days of WikiLeaks.

 

Benedict Cumberbatch ("Star Trek Into Darkness," "Sherlock") stars as WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, with Daniel Bruhl as Assange's former partner Daniel Domscheit-Berg. The cast also includes Laura Linney, Stanley Tucci, Anthony Mackie, David Thewlis and Dan Stevens.

 

"The Fifth Estate" is directed by Bill Condon ("Dreamgirls," "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn" Parts 1 and 2), with a screenplay by Josh Singer ("The West Wing") based on "Inside WikiLeaks: My Time with Julian Assange at the World's Most Dangerous Website" by Domscheit-Berg and "WikiLeaks: Inside Julian Assange's War on Secrecy" by David Leigh and Luke Harding.

 

According to DreamWorks, the film "reveals the quest to expose the deceptions and corruptions of power that turned an Internet upstart into the 21st century's most fiercely debated organization."

 

WikiLeaks denounced the film following the trailer's release, posting the video to its Twitter account and writing, "Don't be fooled. It implies we gave Iran nukes and killed 2,000."

 

"Our comments are based on the script used during filming, not, as the director Bill Condon falsely states an old script (though we have them too)," the organization added.

 

"The Fifth Estate" arrives in theaters on Oct. 18.

I reckon Julian Assange should have been then Producer ... Who the hell else could get the story straight? The film risks being propoganda

Quote "

Zack Snyder. Guillermo Del Toro. Gore Verbinski. Michael Bay. Peter Jackson. These are just some of the top filmmakers in the world who have tried to make video games — who have said that they’ve got ideas that’d be great to play — yet who’ve mostly failed in the realm of PC, PlayStation, Xbox and Nintendo.

What follows is a litany of their struggles, a chronicle of their unsuccessful attempts to make new games or, in Jackson’s case, to make a radically different type of Halo adventure.

No one ever said it’s easy to make games.

We’ve already offered one massive rundown of cancelled and collapsed gaming projects from cinema’s heavyweights. Here’s the other half: the gaming failures top men behind Pacific Rim, Lord of the Rings, The Lone Ranger, Transformers and more."

Quote "

Unveiled last month, and verified by the London School of Economics, Virgin Media's Hotlist uses an algorithm to analyse data taken from Twitter and Facebook in order to offer an alternative insight into the reaction of TV viewers.

"Sentiment" percentages are reached by collecting all proactive comments posted on social media about a given programme. Using key words to determine whether the sentiment is positive or negative, the number of positive posts is then divided by the total number of posts. Negative posts are then subtracted from this number to arrive at the final percentage.

The percentages for even the most popular shows are relatively low due to the large number of neutral posts, while a minus percentage is arrived at when the number of negative posts outweighs the positive."

Mattia Nicoletti's curator insight, July 13, 2013 2:19 PM

Social media is the "voice of the people", a way for viewers to express their thoughts. Opinions, advices, comments. Television now is different and viewers are more and more into the game.

Quote "Engage.  While there has been much press around zeebox and Viggle having a combined 8m users, Xbox SmartGlass has quietly been downloaded 17m times.  So targeting the right demographic and leveraging the “passive but pervasive” capability of a second screen ecosystem seems to create utility and enough value to generate significant consumer activity. - In the last few weeks there has been notable activity in the 2nd Screen space.  Watchwith raised $5 million and ConnecTV raised $1.4 million.  In the Discovery space, Matcha closed its operations while Squrl and Vidora launched consumer-oriented services.  Yahoo bought Qwiki (for creating user generated 2nd Screen content) and Samsung acquired Boxee (presumably to attack the digital video end of the living room).  And then over the weekend, billionaire Carlos Slim announced he was investing $40 million into Shazam to accelerate their pivot from a music service to a second screen TV advertising service.  So while we have predicting that the space would consolidate (with some evidence that consolidation is taking place), there is enough market interest in the growth potential of the space to attract new investment and new services."
