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...

This is my new must read for everyone. Lassiter's insights about computer graphics (CG) transcend his industry. They offer guidance for UX and web designers (any designer really) and businesses alike. His comments on storytelling and emotion connection are the key to success in design and business. I will be quoting this article for years to come.

 

I would absolutely recommend this to everyone.

Karen Dietz's curator insight, July 7, 5:18 PM

What a nifty post that zeros in on ways to make our storytelling better -- based on science. 


The author, Ben Parr @benparr, the author of Captivology (oooh, nice new word!) shares with us 7 things to focus on if we want to capture someone's attention. Like:

  • Automaticity
  • Rewards
  • Mystery
  • Acknowledgement


Parr explains what he means by each element. After reading the article, ask yourself questions like,

  1. "How can I bring my mystery into my stories?"
  2. "What are ways I can acknowledge people either in my stories, or with my stories?"
  3. "How can I craft my story so a reward is included?"
  4. "What phrase do I want to repeat to have stick in people's minds?"


You'll think of others, too as you read about all 7 elements. This will be fun to do. Get started right away.

The three Cs are:

At the intersections we see the actions and functions we must support:

Characters+Convenience – the personalization of the story experience for each person based on their relationship to the worldConvenience+Community – the continued “personalization” but in a broader sense as applied to audience segments. For example an audience team collaborates to unlock content that only they can see. Also at this intersection is the ability to share content and refer friends to the worldCommunity+Characters – this is the relationship between the community and the world. Creators should provide opportunities to strengthen the relationship through procedures and technology to allow fan contributions, character interactions and such like.
