Two Pens's curator insight, May 13, 2013 3:34 PM

Transmedia is a weird term. It's also a new world that incorporates elements of traditional film-making, digital assets, photography, architectural drawings, you name it: all in service to story. It's fun but it 

takes a whip to control all those elements into something that translates into more than the sum of its parts.

Digital comics is a medium that is still finding its footing. 2012 was a banner year, and saw the launch of new and progressive approaches to exploring the seemingly infinite possibilities of the digital canvas. One such launch was Comic Book Think Tank, spearheaded by Ron Perazza and Daniel Govar.

Q&A: Frank Rose on digital storytelling and media immersion

Q&A: Frank Rose on digital storytelling and media immersion | Transmedia: Storytelling for the Digital Age | Scoop.it
Transmedia has become a real buzzword lately, but the problem with that term is that it puts the emphasis on the means - telling stories across various media platforms - rather than on the goal. The goal is immersiveness. Using different media becomes natural when you have a distribution platform - the Internet - that subsumes all media. But that's not the only way to reach the goal.


Frank Rose is the author of The Art of Immersion: How the Digital Generation Is Remaking Hollywood, Madison Avenue, and the Way We Tell Stories and a contributing editor to Wired.
