A look at the world of interactive storytelling, including: tools of the trade; putting a team together; the role of the audience; and finding funding.


Elaine McMillion says "As an interactive storyteller, you need to have an understanding of user experience, design and coding, but most importantly you have to understand what makes a strong narrative."

Mc Million about storytelling: "As an interactive storyteller, you need to have an understanding of user experience, design and coding, but most importantly you have to understand what makes a strong narrative. [...] So while it’s helpful to understand the technology, it’s essential to understand how stories are consumed, generated, shared, repurposed and controlled by online audiences. I think it’s important for an interactive storyteller to give up a level of control and work with your team to discuss the number of ways a story should and could be told. Some stories are best told through video, while others may be more powerful through audio and photos [...]"

What Not To Do In Public Relations

What Not To Do In Public Relations | Transmedia Storytelling for Business | Scoop.it
There are plenty of examples abound on what not to do in public relations. The speed of the Internet can viral an errant post faster than you can delete it.
Debbie Elicksen 's insight:

Most of us are human and we will make a mistake. There are examples of some who publicly published a comment and once it was pushed live, immediately rethought it and deleted it. I know I’ve done it. Depending on how high profile you are, that post could still go viral, but if it was deleted within five minutes or as soon as you could log back in, that shows the insult was not intentional, just a lapse in judgment.

SLJ explores how transmedia storytelling, or telling a story across media platforms, has cracked open possibilities for educators to teach and assess, as well as opportunities for students to learn.
Debbie Elicksen 's insight:

It's an uphill challenge, but every classroom could use transmedia to activate better learning, and maybe keep more kids in schools -- instead of banning networks from the school wifi.

'Gentleman's Guide,' McDonald have magic touch at Tony Awards

'Gentleman's Guide,' McDonald have magic touch at Tony Awards | Transmedia Storytelling for Business | Scoop.it
Broadway's newest darling is a killer of a musical comedy. "A Gentleman's Guide to Love & Murder," the tuneful tale of a dastardly charmer clearing his path to a fortune, was proclaimed the winner of four Tony Awards, including best musical. "The little engine that could, did," summed up producer Joey Parnes. While "Gentleman" was declared top of the musical class, jumping to the head of the line of Broadway's best Sunday night was Audra McDonald, who made Tonys history by becoming the first performer to win Tonys in all four acting categories. The Divine Ms. D won her sixth award, this time as best actress in a play, and found new ways to impress as Billie Holiday in "Lady Day at the Emerson Bar & Grill." She topped a category that included two-time Tony winner and CMU alum Cherry Jones

Debbie Elicksen 's insight:

One of the accounts deleted the photos off their phone, but they were still on the iCloud server. 

 

Agree. Anyone who participates in viewing these photos are advocating the act of cyberbullying in for form of a cyber hack. Shame on you. 

 

Blaming Jennifer Lawrence and the rest for taking the photos is like slut-shaming a rape victim. These people were violated -- and in the worst way. It's like someone breaking into your home or someone stealing your identity. It is wrong. Period.

Transmedia Storytelling & The Rise of The Alternate Reality Game (ARG)

Transmedia Storytelling & The Rise of The Alternate Reality Game (ARG) | Transmedia Storytelling for Business | Scoop.it
Once Upon A Time...I dare any thirty-something to deny at some point in their childhood they didn’t want to be a superhero. Not surprising then that so many people became so enthralled back in 2008
Debbie Elicksen 's insight:

To heck with the 30-something -- those of us who saw the Batman TV series also wanted to be Batman -- or in my case -- Catwoman. :)

 

The Dark Knight is a series we can't get enough of. Sure, the transmedia promotion leading up to it was like an out-of-body experience, but the shows themselves held up their end of the bargain. Especially with Christian Bale's portrayal of Batman, and Heath Ledger's portrayal of the Joker was a role that transcended all roles. If anyone hasn't seen his performance, even if you don't like these types of film, it's one of those can't miss moments.

 

The Dark Knight promotion is the mother of all. It's the candle we all strive to light in our own campaigns.
