Goed om te weten als je een Snapchat verhaal wilt maken. Zeker als je - zoals ik - er net mee begint. ;-)

Initially, the production team thought that episodes should be kept short because the audience the show targets is primarily watching on mobile. But Parks has noticed that the completion rates for the YouTube videos have been “very high,” so longer episodes are quickly becoming a priority...

Dr. Pamela Rutledge's curator insight, June 27, 2016 11:57 AM

Sickhouse - the first SnapChat-based film--brought to mind Blair Witch Project.  Both are revolutionary in their use of media to capture authenticity, breaking the fourth wall, and capturing the audience's imagination by fiddling with reality vs. fiction.  Using SnapChat is a clever device to make the film timely and raw.  

 

First adopters always have the advantage of challenging the audience's existing mental models about where and how reality ends and fiction begins.  This is a nice metaphor for social technologies as an extension of the social space rather than "some other place."  It is exactly that understanding that made the initial launch so powerful.

 

SnapChat also demands a 'Heminwayesqe' brevity and succinctness to scene construction, especially in real time.  Creating a horror film is a bit of a cheat as all that heightened anxiety increases the "need to know" among the audience that encourages following the story through.  Nevertheless, with so many moving parts, it makes sense to use a genre with wide socioemotional appeal.

 

The irony is that it didn't all disappear in the SnapChat way, and thus challenges how we understand SnapChat as well.  I have wondered for some time, given the creativity that SnapChat unleashes, how long people will be willing to just let their mini-artworks go into the ether.  When we create, it is part of us.  We have a long history of documenting acts of creativity because it is how we share our most human qualities.

Snapchat movie Sickhouse was a real success. "Everyone was hooked. People trust that what they are seeing on their snap stories is real", said he director Hannah Macpherson. One key was to cast a protagonist who already was a social media pop star (Andrea Russett). She posted the videos from her own account.

Denis Lundie's curator insight, July 8, 2013 5:23 AM

Social media, as expected, are proliferating and also being embedded in collaboration applications. They can be public or private. Different social media appeal to different segments of the population for different reasons. Individuals can, and do, join different social networks for different interests or relationships in their lives. Finally, they are quite simply applications, with different functionality, will behave differently.

 

Much has been made in media and education circles of Facebook and Twitter, ranging from the inherent dangers to teaching by means of these, and how to integrate them into education. Policies have been developed around them. This picture should dispel the hype surrounding the most obvious social networks, as unique threats or opportunities, for learning.

 

IT strategies and policies should not developed around individual applications, especially not social networks. e-Safety education especially, should focus on responsible management of privacy, irrespective the medium. Teaching & learning opportunities should be sought in social media that are built for learning, or embedded in rapidly evolving learning applications.
