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.

Eager to learn more about 'For the Records' and it's dynamics--interactivity, audience participation, multiple threads--and where the gaming elements intersect with the other elements.  All the things that create a rich sense of narrative transportation and multi-sensory experience may go a long way to shift perceptions through empathy.

Manesha's curator insight, February 17, 4:00 PM

Le Transmedia Storytelling représente le fait de raconter une histoire cohérente éclatée sur plusieurs plateformes médiatiques dans le but de créer une expérience globale. L’objectif est de déployer un univers cohérent où chaque élément narratif vient enrichir les autres. Ce procédé permet de multiplier les points d’entrée dans l’univers et ainsi toucher une plus grande audience.

“Transmedia is a word for old people”

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, March 29, 2014 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 M.R.'s curator insight, March 31, 2014 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, 2014 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."
