Interessante modello da sperimentare!

Hugely important trend and this is a good way to parse it up so it is understandable.
Jim Stewartson: "Friends, it’s time to get serious. The ongoing debate between (intelligent, well-meaning) people about what “transmedia” means and even whether defining the word matters at all, is killing our common cause."
More on the "T-word" ....
Mattia Nicoletti: "Some days ago a friend of mine, owner of music bar close to my house, decided to plan a Funky Night with a Dj in 15 days. From that idea I started thinking what I would have done to transform it into a transmedia experience."
Transmedia marketing or party planning with social media? Either way, this is a useful article :)
Simon Staffans: "A couple of years ago I wrote a post on transmedia, examining a comparison that Jeff Gomez often sports; the one of likening transmedia to a symphony orchester, where you have a great number of different instruments – or media platforms – that need to be conducted in precisely the right way in order for them to create the harmonies that will make people sit up, take notice and flock to the content."
Funny but true !
My transmedia story, Kiss Kill (Really Blue Books 2012) is definitely singer/songwriter with a small acapella group.
Macaulay New Media Lab: "The more I engage with this fledgling series, the more I find out about the qualities of a good transmedia story. It isn’t enough to merely adapt a story for screen and print, there needs to be a compelling reason for it to bridge multiple mediums" ...
An interesting, but to-the-point, analogy ....
Comparing storytellers to drug dealers is certainly an attention grabber.

How to "completely immerse your audience into the world of the movie" ...
La maggior parte del l'idea alla base di Secret Cinema, è sorprendentemente semplice: immergere completamente il pubblico nel mondo del film, entrare in contatto con la storia in un modo più profondo.
The production that the Secret Cinema crew puts on is a true transmedia experience in the fullest sense of the definition from Henry Jenkins. "Transmedia storytelling represents a process where integral elements of a fiction get dispersed systematically across multiple delivery channels for the purpose of creating a unified and coordinated entertainment experience. Ideally, each medium makes its own unique contribution to the unfolding of the story."
Simon Staffans: 'I was quite amazed and fairly impressed by the quotes from Game of Throne’s director David Petrarca at the Perth Writers’ Festival regarding the effects piracy have had on the tv series. Game of Thrones is by far the most pirated show on Earth at the moment, but David shrugs it off, since the show thrives on ”cultural buzz”.'
And, you should also read Simon's follow up post: Substituting piracy for exchange of favors?
De makers van Game of Thrones beschouwen het feit dat de serie tot de meest 'illegaal' gedownloade ter wereld behoort als een gegeven. Waar ze eigenlijk ook veel voordelen in zien.

Brooke Thompson: "It’s that time of year again… the time when we shake our collective heads and try to have some magical moment where we suddenly all understand what transmedia means. Scratch that. We all understand what transmedia means just fine. This is the time of year when we try to agree on what it means… and, in so doing, prove that the word has meaning and that we understand it more than they do."
A couple more interesting posts this week about the use of the word "transmedia" ... the second post is here.

A look at Latitude's 4 I's of Storytelling. It's not just about going deeper into a storyworld, it's also about bringing the world of the story out.
It is not just for multi-media projects. Especially in business, audiences are no longer one-dimensional.

Mike Vogel: "Much of the talk about Wreck-It Ralph this week will be about the fact that it comes out in Digital HD on February 12th–almost a month ahead of the DVD release. I’m all for anything that makes DVDs less relevant, but I think the transmedia strategy behind Wreck-It Ralph is more innovative than releasing a movie digitally."
Mike Vogel ponders the difference between transmedia and marketing when it comes to Wreck-It Ralph.
