Прикольно, для того, чтобы открыть на iPad новый кусочек истории, читателю надо физически оказаться в том или ином месте. Интересно, что же это за история должна быть такая, чтобы так напрягаться...

Mattia Nicoletti's curator insight, January 19, 2013 12:15 AM

Spreadable media is ispirational for the next tv. It's about spreading contents through media. It's about web 1.0 and 2.0. It's about retro culture. 

 

In this interesting interview what comes out is that storytelling and simplicity is a winner in a spreadable world.

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.

How Punchdrunk Theatre Reels ‘em In With Immersive Storytelling

How Punchdrunk Theatre Reels ‘em In With Immersive Storytelling | Transmedia: Storytelling for the Digital Age | Scoop.it
When London’s Punchdrunk Theatre Company opened Sleep No More in March 2011 in an abandoned warehouse block in New York, few imagined it would still be running a year later...


Frank Rose: "People have always wanted to immerse themselves in stories, and digital media have given them any number of ways to do so, from Grand Theft Auto and L.A. Noire to alternate-reality games like Why So Serious?, which drew more than 10 million people into the saga of The Dark Knight before the movie opened. But the desire for immersion has spilled over into the purely analog world as well, as Sleep No More attests."

Why Transmedia Is like a Walk in Patagonia

Why Transmedia Is like a Walk in Patagonia | Transmedia: Storytelling for the Digital Age | Scoop.it

An idea is a fragile thing. And at this point, the idea that we're on the cusp of a new form of storytelling seems to have reached that weird place where much of the world still hasn't accepted it but many of those who have are too busy squabbling over the details to actually focus on doing it.
