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...

That last 2% takes a tremendous amount of time and resources just to get that to a level that you are satisfied with. We saw it on VGHS for all three seasons. It’s very easy to look at that and say it’s not worth it, but in the end, it is absolutely worth it....hmmmm.

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.
