“Transmedia is a word for old people”

“Transmedia is a word for old people” | Transmedia Landscapes | Scoop.it

As a relative newbie to transmedia, I’ve been feeling psyched about the possibilities, particularly when it comes to storytelling for non-profits. Think of the possibilities for engaging donors and volunteers, bringing organizations’ missions to life in a visceral way.

But when a friend of mine shared my obsession with her 17-year-old daughter, this was her response:

“Transmedia is a word for old people.”

Justin Nalepa's insight:

Love the comment posted below the article: "The word represents an attack on the institutional tendency to retain control and ownership of cultural vitality... I think your friend's daughter is absolutely right and only slightly wrong because transmedia is another word for power, and sharing control of culture is not the primary objective of the folks who are presently in control of the definition of transmedia."

Interestingly, not every young person lives the way the author's friend's daughter suggested. And not every old person needs a word to describe this practice.

Sadim M.R.'s curator insight, March 31, 2014 3:22 AM

"My friend’s daughter explained that young people don’t need a word to describe transmedia because this is how they live every day. The narrative of their own lives unfolds across different social media platforms and they consciously create identities for themselves depending on where, what, how and with whom they share information."

Funny/cool/informative article about transmedia. I love this idea for teaching Shakespeare (and other complex literary texts) to high school students. Tell the story through a variety of formats.

The pursuit of happiness: Transmedia universes from the perspective of the audience

The pursuit of happiness: Transmedia universes from the perspective of the audience | Transmedia Landscapes | Scoop.it

Let’s put man in the center of the universe, let’s give him the main role, the role of the king! Let’s talk about the human nature, let’s analyze how man responds to a great content, how people are influenced by content. I did analyze that, and I came to my personal definition of Transmedia from the perspective of the audience:
“Transmedia storytelling is the ultimate source of solutions and happiness for an audience, whose entire repertoire of senses and perceptions is engaged through the skillful use of mystery, that generates an overall emotional involvement and leads the audience to copy, decide and finally create their own parallel universe.”

Interesting article

I am so happy that you shared this. I shared Nancy Duarte's Hero's Journey one day in the classroom because the internet was down and I couldn't give my regular presentation slides. Ten months later, students still tell me that I "ruin in a good way' their movie watching because they think of this cycle.

WTF is Transmedia? (2013)

WTF is Transmedia? (2013) | Transmedia Landscapes | Scoop.it

Andrea Phillips:  "It's become fashionable to hate the word 'transmedia' in some circles. The T-word has been very good to me. It's netted me any number of speaking engagements and website hits and sold me a book, among other things, so I feel a certain loyalty to it. I don't think I'd be enjoying the same degree of professional success if I hadn't very consciously embraced That Word back in 2010 or so."

Reflexão interessante sobre a, as vezes, mal falada "transmedia".
