Rear Window at Christmas: behind Google's new interactive animated short | Transmedia: Storytelling for the Digital Age | Scoop.it
The Digital Rocking Chair's insight:


Adi Robertson:  "The scene is a snowy apartment building out of the 1950s, rendered in a bright, slightly retro palette. A janitor trudges across the courtyard, then stops, wary. Someone is out there. Someone large, nimble, and wearing a floppy red hat. Then you turn your phone."

"Aardman’s animation, though, had to look good from several different possible camera angles. It couldn’t be linear, and it had to progress at the viewer’s pace. In Special Delivery, some vignettes only begin when you look closely at them, and major story events will wait until you’re paying attention. Instead of a screen, the team had to imagine something more like a stage. They even built a circular cardboard "set" as a storyboard, blocking out the movement of their characters in physical space. 

"You’re giving away the camera to the audience, which is a bit nerve-wracking," says director Tim Ruffle. "After a while, you kind of get the idea that you’re trying to create an experience for people, rather than creating a show."

That’s a sentiment that’s heard more and more often, from directors exploring the nascent field of virtual reality video."


The article mentions the VR limitations and its differences with 360° casual immersion. It also meditates on the line being blurred between motion pictures and video game.

Once again, about creating new career paths and opportunities.

 

This is something that I have noticed several years ago. Most of the new stuff is coming by way of the new media. Newspapers and Magazines are still around but not nearly as relevant.

 

The main message I get from this article is that while the medium may have changed, the message remains the same. Convince your audience of your sincerity in a niche, and you will draw the audience. Draw the audience and you will (eventually) get financial reward.

 

And as an aside, I believe it to be much more difficult to convince a diverse audience of your sincerity if it is not genuine. Because this becomes a universe of niche's, most people devoted to a particular niche can recognize a fake pretty quickly.

Our brain is the original flight simulator.  Nothing is as powerful as the human brains' ability to visualize and imagine and fill in the storyworld of what we hear.  Years of storytellers have taken us on all kinds of journeys, from Lake Wobegon to War of the Worlds.  Very smart to hear that BBC Radio thinks of listeners as 'viewers.'
