Transmedia is a weird term. It's also a new world that incorporates elements of traditional film-making, digital assets, photography, architectural drawings, you name it: all in service to story. It's fun but it
takes a whip to control all those elements into something that translates into more than the sum of its parts.

Chuck Wendig: "I met Andrea Phillips one night at one of our local “Cult of Transmedia” meetings, which takes place across a blog, a smartphone, a movie screen, a walking tour of NYC, and a Denny’s diner menu downloaded into the brain of Abraham Lincoln. She is, quite plainly, a transmedia proselyte and guru all at the same time, and you must heed her words as a storyteller unless I break all the bones in your feet."
Peter Gutierrez: "You might recall that [Andy] Plemmons works with classroom teachers to help students create transmedia experiences around specific events and curricular topics. Well, he does a lot more than that, too, which is why it’s really been my pleasure to learn of his work" ...
