The Digital Rocking Chair's insight:


Simon Staffans:  "Jeff Gomez of Starlightrunner Entertainment is someone most people in the transmedia field recognize. An evangelist, a creative, a renowned producer – Jeff’s been an inspiration for me and many others over the past years. I’ve been keeping close tabs on his and Starlightrunner’s activities, and entertainment franchises are definitely no longer the only things on their plate. With that in mind, I took the opportunity to talk a bit more in-depth with Jeff about their activities, and about the future of transmedia on the whole" ...

Simon Staffans's curator insight, January 7, 5:53 AM

"I spent my early years in a chaotic environment. I saw the effects of poverty, crime and violence on families, on kids my age. I haven’t forgotten that. It’s still there and not nearly enough is being done about it. Left unchecked, these are what lead to corruption, extremism, organized crime, terrorism and war.

 

My salvation was story: the stories my mom told me at bedtime, the optimistic future of Star Trek, the nobility and perseverance of Frodo Baggins, the true stories of leaders like Gandhi and Martin Luther King, Jr. I found the codes in these stories and was somehow able to transpose them onto the map of my own life. Why can’t this work for other people? Why can’t transmedia be applied toward inspiring, motivating, and activating individuals, communities and even entire nations facing crises?"

 

good in-depth interview with Jeff!

Thinking beyond screens

Thinking beyond screens | Transmedia: Storytelling for the Digital Age | Scoop.it
The Digital Rocking Chair's insight:


Simon Staffans:  "When Latitude released their ”Future of Storytelling II” research report last year, some things stood out as pretty exceptional to me. One of them was that of all the people they’d talked to – mostly tech-savvy persons in Brazil, the US and the UK – a total of 94% said they wanted storytellers to actively move their narratives into the real world as well. I.e., the screen is no longer enough; stories should touch you physically as well, be a part of the world around you."

The Digital Rocking Chair's insight:


Simon Staffans:  "A couple of years ago I wrote that I believe the term ”transmedia” will become utterly redundant in a few years’ time. Looking at how the audience and the audience’s engagement has evolved, how new technological possibilities, startups and solutions enable all kinds of new producers, and how the market has started leaning towards a new economy and a new way of approaching content creation, distribution and monetization… I think we’re getting there, quicker than I thought."
