The Age of Bite-Size Entertainment | Transmedia Seattle | Scoop.it
As the world goes mobile, get ready for more movies, books and music that can be snacked on in a single sitting.
Brad Tollefson's insight:

Everyone is talking about the binge-viewing craze, but as people increasingly consume TV, movies, books and music on mobile devices, briefer is better.


Shorter formats "are in-betweeners, the cream in the middle of the Oreo," says Jeffrey Katzenberg, chief executive of DreamWorks Animation... For some reason, ewwww...

Surreal World Seattle

Surreal World Seattle | Transmedia Seattle | Scoop.it

 Meet Webby: http://youtu.be/2XfvzdQOnmY

 

Curious about transmedia storytelling, joining the next Transmedia Seattle MeetUp!, why we love TransmediaSF, what it was like to be a part of the world premiere of Transmedia Jam?

Watch a project evolve in front of your eyes as intrepid members of Transmedia Seattle continue to iterate and fail forward on a project launched during Transmedia Jam 2012.  

This transmedia project originated with the idea of how best to tell the unlikely love story of a webcam named Webby, recently retired after 15 years of objectively recording endless interviews with contestants on a  'Real Life' - like TV reality show called Sureal World Seattle.  Now that she's been retired- she's has love or attitude to share.  Need some love, got some advice,  or attitude. I think you'll see Webby needs a little help from her friends. Come and get/give it! Robert Pratten weighed in.  How 'bout you? What are we doing wrong- and right? today. 

 

Our current aim is to make Surreal World Seattle a destination for all interested in how to Just Do It! with transmedia, or honest assessment from a spunky webcam in love...

 

I think you're gonna love Webby OR Mike...

"Today, we are releasing the first batch of videos from our April 4 conference, Transforming Hollywood: The Future of Television, jointly hosted by Denise Mann (UCLA) and myself (USC) and held in UCLA’s James Bridges Theater. Special thanks to David McKenna for his epic work in editing, mixing, and uploading these videos so quickly.

 

PANEL 1 Virtual Entrepreneurs: Creators Who are Reinventing TV for the Digital Future

 

In Fall 2011, Google announced plans to invest $100 million dollars to forge original content partnerships with a number of talented YouTube creators in order to enhance the production value of their work and their value to brands. This panel gives voice to two new types of virtual entrepreneur: Individual web creators who are reinventing entertainment for the digital age, and the CEO of a new type of web-based multi-channel network (MCN), which is forging deals with individual web-creators in exchange for providing them with infrastructural support in the form of sound stages, green screens, higher quality cameras and editing equipment, enhanced social media marketing tools and brand alliances...."

Fast Food for the Mind: Stories or Tweets? | Transmedia Seattle | Scoop.it
“Through social media interactions via online venues like Facebook and Twitter, our society today is overrun in the same way with “fast food for the mind.” Just as our bodies can tolerate only so much unhealthy food, our minds equally have a certain cognitive bandwidth. But instead of spending our bandwidth on deeper thoughts, we often sacrifice it for the instant gratification and distraction of the mind offered by myriad online venues.”

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, March 29, 11:40 PM

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 MR's curator insight, March 31, 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."

Justin Nalepa's curator insight, March 31, 11:01 AM

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."
