Todd Allen:  "The business side of the comics business is something that doesn’t get discussed nearly as much as it should and that can cause some stumbling blocks — particularly for creators striking out on their own."

Here Are the 5 Things That Make a Good Transmedia Project | Transmedia Seattle | Scoop.it

Brad Tollefson's insight:
The work leverages the strengths of each medium it uses.

If you’re just putting video on the web, that’s not very exciting. The web is there to foster dialog, participation, it’s not television or a movie theater. If you’re going to use a mobile phone as one of your storytelling platforms, why not emphasize the user’s intimacy with the device. Smart phones have become intensely personal items.

In short, transmedia creators and producers would do well not to simply scatter their stories across different media. They have to carefully consider the features and strengths of the platform, and design the expression of that aspect of the narrative to take best advantage of them. 

It’s also important for creators to place within each expression of the story a marker of some sort that will lead the audience to the next medium. This can be done subtly, within the context of the story, but some aspect of the interface will also need to more overtly tell us how to get to the rest of the presentation. Fail to do that well, and you’re audience (or as I prefer to call them, participants) won’t be able to enjoy the complete work...

I absolutely LOVE how storytelling is used in this organization as a connective learning tool. As a part of the idea of 'education' shifting away from simple knowledge acquisition there is a significant power in story.  It is an opportunity for learning about and from one another.  I feel we have lost this and I welcome it back.

Fantastic point, Brad. The web is there to foster participation. Love it.
