Nick DeMartino: "I choose to think of the Story World Conference as a bellwether for the health of the transmedia community. What did #SWC12 tell us? Here are my thoughts a couple of weeks after the conference, held over three days in mid-October in Los Angeles" ...
Peter Gutierrez: "Although DeMartino is not himself an academic, he’s a top consultant specializing in digital production/distribution (which includes transmedia, naturally), and has clearly devoted a lot of time to considering transmedia’s broader ramifications… especially those that relate to the K-12 world."
A website that presents an ongoing sci-fi series about the town in a format unlike any TV you've ever seen...

Perhaps, that is changing, given the blur between content, technology, social, and audience"...
The famous Harry Potter sorting hat. It’s a fitting metaphor for this presentation, as I sort through the emerging history of transmedia storytelling.
If nothing else, last week's Story World Conference in San Francisco affirmed the reality of a new creative movement devoted to transmedia storytelling.
Tracking transmedia developments as they unfold will be complicated, in part because this new entertainment format covers so much ground.
“Isaac Newton didn't discover gravity, he just named it,” one TV writer-producer quipped during a recent conversation about “transmedia.”
