Interview: Houston Howard on “City of Refuge” [#Transmedia] | Transmedia: Storytelling for the Digital Age | Scoop.it

Mike Vogel:  "City of Refuge is an ambitious transmedia project about a fictional small town that serves as an alternative to prison, where criminals are reformed and safe from law-enforcement. But if they leave the town, they risk being chased down by bounty hunters. I interviewed producer Houston Howard about City of Refuge."

The Digital Rocking Chair's insight:

An excellent interview with City of Refuge producer, Houston Howard.  It's a great snapshot of the transmedia development process.

James Marshall:  "As the title implies and the author asserts, this is first and foremost a scholarly work that targets the use of transmedia storytelling in higher education. The book delivers on that commitment, and provides much in the way of theory and concept to ignite the reader’s thinking around the topic."

Via Simon Staffans
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!

Vivalist's curator insight, Today, 4:50 PM

Columbia joins the MIT and Duke University in the search for 21st century storytelling. It is interdisciplinary, that's one thing.

 

There are probably a lot of other academic programs in other universities as well. It's exciting to see interdisciplinary programs such as Duke' GreaterThanGames initiative give birth to awesome projects.

If journalists want to raise real awareness of what is going on in the world, they can´t just offer the audience facts and images.  They also have to give possibilities to feel the reality. Nonny de la Peña´s Project Syria is a great example of it.
