Ted Hope: "Filmmakers, Hollywood, The Industry, rarely know whom their audience is. We do it so ass-backwards: we make a movie and we think it is so wonderful that people all over the world will come to see it. Wouldn’t it be a hell of a lot easier ifall we did was take our movies where people are already gathered?"
Molly Ebner: "In a search for similarity, one particular aspect of the human psyche stands out. This is our underlying desire for beauty, which differs from person to person. Regardless, we are all compelled to seek it out in life. And when we find it, a feeling of content resonates within."
Amie Mills: "When we’re talking about transmedia, we’re starting to use terms like story world, where you have many stories told using multiple media forms, across many different channels and platforms … and how that content lives and breathes is uniquely tailored to the platform you’re viewing it on." via Ben Fahy of StopPress
Simon Parkin: "The video game Eve Online is one of Iceland’s biggest exports and has become the world’s largest living work of science fiction. While rival games have come and gone, it has survived – thanks to a unique experiment in democracy."
Henry Jenkins: "Today, I want to highlight yet another effort to encourage civic and political reflections around the superhero genre. In this case, I am focusing on a study and reflection guide recently released by the Fandom Forward Project of the Harry Potter Alliance, to encourage conversations about the representation of gender, disability, and political/civic engagement within the extended Marvel universe."
Nick DeMartino recently moderated 2 music panels at Digital Hollywood: "There were two panels with two discussions (music & YouTube; music and social), but truthfully, this is an ongoing conversation in which music is the canary in the coal mine – trends we see now in music are trends we’ll see throughout the digital media ecosystem."
Aleszu Bajak: 'The story is the foundation to interactive storytelling. There are strict rules to the reporting and news gathering for the story. Distribution, the launch and the publicity that follows, has its own strict set of rules, too. What’s flexible, says [Konstantinos Antonopoulos, senior interactive designer], is the narrative: “This is a space to infuse technology, use good visuals, and transform the story into an experience.”'
Stephen Follows: "Grab a cup of tea – this is a long one. It’s rare for filmmakers to get a candid look at the books of someone else’s film but, thanks to the generosity of Marcus Markou, that’s exactly what you’ll get to read below."
Producer Foundry: "Randy [Hall] and Ben [Yennie] welcome Maya Zuckerman, co-founder of TransmediaSF, to answer the question, "what is transmedia?" and why every filmmaker needs to pay attention to this way of thinking about their projects."
Calum Marsh: "Games structured like prestige TV shows present unique difficulties – having to essentially build different games – but also unique opportunities: ‘It’s really cool to be able to react to what your community likes about it as you’re making it’"
