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...

The Art and Science of Web Storytelling

The Art and Science of Web Storytelling | Transmedia Seattle | Scoop.it
Storytelling is one of the oldest (and most effective) forms of communication. Since the advent of language after signs, storytelling became a part of cultural rituals all around the world. In the olden days, every village and town had its own storytellers who used to entertain the locals with their stories every evening. All they needed to conjure up a story was an idea, a gossip, or a stimulus of any kind, and their imaginations did the rest. The art of storytelling has evolved through the ages, but the basics remain the same. Even today, gossips and rumors lead to the publication of featured lifestyle magazines.

What is Story Theory? How to Use It to Create Awesome Brand Affinity

Presentation given to University of Chicago Alums re: Story Theory and its Application To Marketing

Brad Tollefson's insight:

Karen Dietz's curator insight, November 25, 2014 2:48 PM

Here's a great piece colleague Jim Signorelli put together about how story theory works better as an approach in branding than giving a list of essential story elements or simple story structures.


Right on Jim! It won't take readers long to go through this SlideShare piece and reap the benefits. Of course I love Doug Lipmans story dynamics chart on slide 18, the Identification Filter (oops Jim, there's a typo here!) on slide 20, and the motive chart on slide 27.


The definition of story beginning on slide 37 is OK and goes beyond what most people produce. I'm biased though. I like what Peggy Van Pelt from Disney and I came up with oh so many moons ago -- "a story is an act of communication providing packets of sensory material and an emotional narrative arc allowing listeners to quickly and easily internalize it, understand it, and create meaning from it."


I like this definition because it focuses not on what a story is, but on what it does. What's the lesson here? There is no 1 right definition. Be aware of the variety of existing story definitions and use the one that fits your objectives at that particular time.


OK -- enough said. Enjoy the insights in Jim's post and keep the light for storytelling well lit and tended!
