"AIR's nationwide Localore production accelerates innovation at public radio and TV stations and sinks new taproots into local communities with "full-spectrum" models that blend on-air, screen, and street media. Together, Localore's 10 lead producers—with their stations, interactive storytelling partner Zeega, and a team of more than 230 collaborators—are laying the ground for a more inclusive 21st-century public media. Funding provided by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, the Wyncote Foundation, the John D. and Catherine T.

What Games Are: The Reviewers Are Wrong About OUYA | TechCrunch

What Games Are: The Reviewers Are Wrong About OUYA | TechCrunch | Transmedia Landscapes | Scoop.it
Reviews of Ouya have thus far perhaps been unfair because they tend to either rate the machine against Android devices or existing consoles, when it is neither of those.
Justin Nalepa's insight:

When Ouya first appeared on Kickstarter, many thought this console would become a disruption in the game industry, allowing for a relatively inexpensive system and games to be developed "by gamers, for gamers". Now that the console is starting to ship, early reviewers have not been impressed with its capabilities. Has the Ouya fallen short of expectations, or is it being compared unfairly in a market of AAA game consoles. Is it something new altogether?

Jane McGonigal on the good and bad of video game escapism

Jane McGonigal on the good and bad of video game escapism | Transmedia Landscapes | Scoop.it
Game designer Jane McGonigal began her GDC talk this year with a quote from author Jack Finney: "It seems too bad — this universal craving to escape what could be a rich, productive, happy world." Finney was writing about the ‘40s, but McGonigal said the trends he was talking about are magnified in our modern culture, especially in gaming.
Justin Nalepa's insight:

McGonigal debates the two forms of escapism inherent in video games: self-suppression and self-expansion.

Spreading a story

Spreading a story | Transmedia Landscapes | Scoop.it

TL;DR – A brief scribble about reaching the audience, prompted by a talk from last week. The other day I watched the talk that Starlight Runner’s Caitlin Burns held at Emerge 2013 in Arizona last week. Speaking from experience, Caitlin talks about several important issues; the power of stories, the evolvement of storytelling etc. One thing that stuck in my mind was the part about getting a story to spread.

Justin Nalepa's insight:

Some thoughts and insight from Simon Staffans about spreading a story after Caitlin Burns' presentation at Emerge 2013.

 

Key point:

 

Her ”secret sauce” consist of four points – ”Be Interesting”, ”Describe it in a way that provokes the imagination”, ”Give people something to talk about” and ”Find ways to keep the conversation going”, and it’s hard not to agree with these, so I won’t try.

Thriving on piracy – a transmedia producer’s best friend?

Thriving on piracy – a transmedia producer’s best friend? | Transmedia Landscapes | Scoop.it

Simon Staffans:  'I was quite amazed and fairly impressed by the quotes from Game of Throne’s director David Petrarca at the Perth Writers’ Festival regarding the effects piracy have had on the tv series. Game of Thrones is by far the most pirated show on Earth at the moment, but David shrugs it off, since the show thrives on ”cultural buzz”.'

Five transmedia projects - February 2013

Five transmedia projects - February 2013 | Transmedia Landscapes | Scoop.it

These are exciting times. New transmedia projects are cropping up left and right and the debate over ”what the definition of transmedia is?” seems to have taken a bit of a step back. All in all it feels like we’re slowly – or perhaps rapidly; these are things that can better be assessed in hindsight – moving towards a media and content world where there is no need to talk about transmedia, as every project is as transmedia as it needs to be to fulfil any potential that project might have.

Ramen Party on Indiegogo

Ramen Party on Indiegogo | Transmedia Landscapes | Scoop.it

Ramen Party represents a way to get kids excited about food by allowing them to combine ingredients in the same way that a DJ combines music. By crossing these two realms, we believe that we can help kids explore different foods and food combinations in a way that is fresh, fun, and easily accessible.

As part of phase one of their transmedia project Ramen Party, creators Lillian Chan, John Poon and Michael Mak are looking to launch an interactive storybook app, ebook series and a Ramen Party website.

Two of the events I was most looking forward to seeing this year at SXSW Interactive were Jason Brush’s talk, Filmmaking as User Experience and Michel Reilhac’s “Meet the Insiders” panel, “Storytelling + Interactive.” Brush teaches at UCLA’s Department of Film, Television and Visual Media and is Executive Vice President of Creative & UX at POSSIBLE. Reilhac, who I have written about before at Filmmaker, is an independent transmedia director, story writer and consultant, and one of the most passionate and eloquent voices for new forms of interactive storytelling.

Pinterest premieres transmedia storytelling experiment | Daily Dot

Pinterest premieres transmedia storytelling experiment | Daily Dot | Transmedia Landscapes | Scoop.it

Pinterest has already changed the way marketers think about commerce.  But it may also be ushering in a new form of storytelling.  Transmedia company BeActive is using Pinterest to share one work of fiction through a combination of episodic videos, audio snippets, and visual pins.

 

Beat Girl is part graphic novel, part TV show, and all on Pinterest.  It tells the story of fictional DJ Heather Jennings in a method that’s not quite TV show, not quite in-person character sketch, and not quite graphic novel. With 160 pins and counting, viewers can catch new glimpses of Jennings’ life added daily. The interactive drama is presented as a prequel to an upcoming multi-platform video series.

 

While the finished product may be a genre of entertainment never seen before, BeActive CEO Nuno Bernardo says it’s rooted in a much older art form.  “We wanted to bring back the popular Photonovels of the ‘60s to the new digital generation,” he said in a statement. “The tools and functionalities introduced by Pinterest allowed us to release the content the way we envisioned. As a world’s first we expect that in the future more and more stories will be told on this network using photos and still images”.

 

Bernardo told the Daily Dot that although Beat Girl is based on a novel, he found it to be a story uniquely suited for multiple platforms.
