Kevin Hodgson: "In simple terms, I like to think of transmedia as storytelling with few if any boundaries, and as we continue to explore digital writing this month and beyond, this idea of taking a story for a walk across platforms seems to be right in tune with the possibilities of writing in a digital age" ...
Megan Willett: "Of course sex appeal has something to do with it, but there are plenty of sexy Instagram accounts that don't have nearly as many followers. So how did Victoria's Secret get so popular?"
Rhys Cooper: "The never-ending argument over what video games are designed for rages on. Should they just be fun, a piece of art, a fantastic story-telling experience or a combination of all three? Most would argue the latter, but for the moment I will focus on the narrative strategies in games and a particular bug-bear of mine" ...
Winston Cook-Wilson: "Over the past couple of days -- as you probably already know -- the near-150-entry tale of trapping, tricking, and Florida motel skullduggery tweeted by the account @_zolarmoon has taken off in an unprecedented way -- possibly, more than its author wants."
Simon Staffans: "Last week I had the pleasure of talking at the Documentary Campus Masterschool in Cologne. I’d been asked to speak about things transmedia (which is a term I still find myself using, not for pitching but definitely in my own development work) and multiplatform, and how to use these methods and ways of thinking to engage with an audience in a fruitful way."
Michelle Herbison: "Content-led storytelling on transmedia platforms coming from an agile, always-on approach – these are the new ways of successful marketing, says scholar and consultant Mohanbir Sawhney."
Henry Oliver: "Clicks. Views. Engagement. Eyeballs. Every news outlet is trying to find new ways to get and keep your valuable attention. And the latest weapon news outlets are trying to get you to watch, read, and listen to them rather than anyone else is telling stories in virtual reality."
Bryant Francis: "For better and for worse, Halo 5 is the first Halo game to acknowledge those small ways of looking at the Halo universe. It's loaded with meaningful plot points and character beats extracted from context so far away you literally have to spend additional money elsewhere to understand it. This may be the insurmountable challenge that "transmedia" stories like Halo will face in going mainstream. But as someone who already bought in, it's rewarding to play a Halo game that in brief moments, celebrates the small ways of looking at its big galactic war."
Eric Buchman: "Are we really experiencing a so-called ‘TV bubble?’ Is it possible there’s an unsustainable amount of really great TV? This week we examine the issue, or perhaps more accurately, the lack thereof."
Anne Zeiser: "Just as Disney and Lucasfilm have orchestrated it, you must go see Star Wars: The Force Awakens to untangle all of its mysteries. But in the meantime, you can scour Star Wars-themed products on grocery shelves and retail stores to look for more clues."
Sherry Tucci: "Meet Regina, an outgoing Polish girl who loves the color pink. Instagram tells the story of her life, from romance to parties to family time, like any young adult. But there is a catch—Regina isn't real."
