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...

Natan Amos's curator insight, December 13, 2015 11:01 PM

All businesses before they actually become businesses need to ask themselves an important question. That question is who is their main target audience? Once they answer who they are trying to target then they need to know a few things about that specific group of people. That is where this interesting article comes into play.

 

It mentions the different forms of technology each generation uses. That should be looked at by businesses to make sure that they are able to provide information for every device such as apps for the phones and tablets as well as properly functioning websites for the desktops  and laptops. 

 

It also mentions how certain generations are likely to be on the computer at certain times so timing out correctly notifications and emails you want your target audience to see is very important to take into consideration.

What to employ storytelling to engage your audience, then implement these easy to follow story formula ideas.

Dr. Pamela Rutledge's curator insight, August 15, 2015 11:12 AM

Nice example of how visual "packaging" makes something you probably already know fun and interesting. Good thing, too. Storytelling is a critical skill because it is how the brain understands and stores information. And maybe each variation of presentation using image or language lets you hear it a little differently each time. Lurking psychological principles: repetition increases learning; frequency increases liking and personal relevance or salience; image engages instinctive, faster and more emotional processing than text alone.

The three C’s of transmedia storytelling

The three C’s of transmedia storytelling | Transmedia Seattle | Scoop.it

Via The Digital Rocking Chair
Brad Tollefson's insight:

The three Cs are:

Characters – the importance of storyConvenience – the importance of getting the right content to the right people at the right timeCommunity – the importance of connecting fans and rewarding them.

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.
