SXSW 2015 Re-Cap: “Game of Thrones” – Creating Immersive Entertainment

SXSW 2015 Re-Cap: “Game of Thrones” – Creating Immersive Entertainment | Transmedia: Storytelling for the Digital Age | Scoop.it
The Digital Rocking Chair's insight:


Christine Weitbrecht:  "Game of Thrones is unlike many others series in that it is on-air only for a few weeks each year, meaning that the show’s producers face a very particular dilemma: Keep fan passion and interest going for the rest of the year when other shows and content are competing for the fans’ attention."

Kajsa Hartig's curator insight, May 28, 2:36 PM

"...the producer’s creativity allowed them to run a campaign that was relatively simple in design, yet still brought about meaningful interactions even for the most involved super-fans;  interactions, that let fans live through important and magical experiences straight from the world of Game of Thrones.

Thoughts on the T – SXSW 2014 Re-Cap | Transmedia: Storytelling for the Digital Age | Scoop.it
The Digital Rocking Chair's insight:


Christine Weitbrecht:  "I just got back from my very first SXSW conference in Austin, Texas, and it was simply amazing and invigorating. SXSW vibrated with great minds, great talents, great projects, and great conversations. This conference is where the good stuff happens, and where people do and think cutting-edge. If you’re interested in social and/or digital media, this is the conference you should attend. It’s not cheap, but it is absolutely worth its money!"

The Changing Role of the Medium / Transmedia Really is a Misconception

The Changing Role of the Medium / Transmedia Really is a Misconception | Transmedia: Storytelling for the Digital Age | Scoop.it

Christine Weitbrecht: "The Internet allows us to access any type of medium and any type of content – be it legally or illegally – at any point in time; our media devices are merging into one, so that we no longer have to literally put down our book in order to start a computer game; and to top it all off, the tools of media creation and production not only become increasingly easy to use, but also a lot more affordable" ...
