What’s In a Website? Designing The Look and Feel of Your Film’s Site | Transmedia: Storytelling for the Digital Age | Scoop.it
The Digital Rocking Chair's insight:


Eric Hynes:  "In 2014, most every filmmaker knows that it’s important to build a website for your project. But how many of us know enough about programming or design to create a site that serves as a fitting representation of the project, let alone one that functions as a tool for both marketing and audience building?"

The Digital Rocking Chair's insight:


Gus Lubin:  "Is 3D movie technology a money-making gimmick or a true innovation? The answer is a little of both. Some movies use the technology to create more wonderfully immersive scenes, but others do little with the technology or even make a movie worse."

This is an unusual one. But I really enjoy reading the works of H.G. Wells and upon viewing this, I felt it kept to the quality of that author.

 

Enjoy.

Henrik Safegaard - Cloneartist's curator insight, March 5, 3:12 AM

A Solitary World — a breathtaking homage to H.G. Wells, with text adapted from five of his most celebrated works: The Time Machine (1895), The Island of Dr. Moreau (1896), The First Men in the Moon (1901), In The Days of the Comet (1906), The World Set Free (1914). Read by Terry Burns and featuring an appropriately haunting score from the young British composer Lennert Busch, the film belongs to — pioneers, perhaps — an emerging creative genre: the cinematic poem.

Roger Ellman's curator insight, March 5, 6:27 AM

OK. So is this Progress?  Are Humans Moving Forward?

Well - art, creativity and idea-innovation are all part of that. So in the loose and all-embracing way we love, the sanswer is yes!

Interesting article. -

 

In the midst of the massive geek Mecca that is San Diego Comic-Con, the big Marvel Studios movie panel had all the theater of a presidential campaign rally. Tom Hiddleston appeared in costume as Loki, the bad guy from Thor, and rallied the crowd in character. Then: so many movie stars, including the full casts of the upcoming Captain America sequel and Guardians of the Galaxy. And just when it seemed like it was over, Joss Whedon, patron saint of nerds, walked out for a Steve Jobsian one-more-thing and introduced the first teaser for The Avengers sequel. Eight thousand fans, some of whom had been waiting in line since the night before, shrieked like their souls were being ripped from their bodies.

The Digital Rocking Chair's insight:

Randy Finch:  "If you're not familiar with the term "transmedia" - or you're skeptical about the existence of a changing paradigm for motion pictures that includes evolving multi-platform techniques for storytelling (including, for example, salting the internet with evidence of a storyworld from which a new film is emerging) - then you're probably not going to appreciate the interview with Jeff Gomez that appeared on July 18th, 2103 in the Business Insider."

I really like the transmedia storytelling idea, but simultaneous transmedia? i'm not so sure...what happens to the unfiltered narration experience? i'm more for the before and after. unless films are actually written with transmedia in mind. simply transmedia-ing existing films won't work. at least not for the core story.

The graphic novel has undergone some permutations since 2009 and will be released ahead of the movie (which comes out in January) but not by much, so many readers will go into the movie cold, knowing not much more than who’s in it and the basic sense for plot that the trailers give.
