The Fanthropology of Theatrics

The Fanthropology of Theatrics | Transmedia: Storytelling for the Digital Age | Scoop.it

Nick DeMartino:  "The session was called "Unlock the Power of Fans" at Transmedia Los Angeles’ monthly meetup earlier this week, but I’ll remember it as the Fanthropology of Theatrics, because I learned so much about the way audiences are using the new collaborative storytelling platform that I was there to represent."

The Digital Rocking Chair's insight:

Nick DeMartino takes us through Theatrics, the storytelling tool behind Beckinfield, Welcome To Sanditon, and Psych's The S#cial Sector.

Andrea Deydén's curator insight, September 20, 2013 5:54 PM

La idea del "cambio ilusorio" de Stan Lee me sorprendió muchísimo. Lo demás fue medio "meh" porque, aunque tiene un punto en eso de los errores de narración, hay que ver que el público meta de los cómics (en especial los de antes) eran hombres adolescentes. Violencia + personajes femeninos de apoyo eran un home hit.

Dorothea Martin's curator insight, May 20, 2013 3:30 AM

Absolute Leseempfehlung! 

Das Phänomen des "Binge-watching"s (Komakucken?!) und "Hyperserien"


“I’ve always said that I don’t see my show as serialized so much as hyperserialized,” explains Vince Gilligan, creator of AMC’s Breaking Bad. “That is something that, honestly, I wouldn’t have been allowed to do 10 or 15 years ago.”

Während Serien wie Sopranos, The Wire oder Deadwood zuerst ihre Charaktere entwickelten und die Handlung erst an zweiter Stelle kam, entwerfen heutige "Hyperserien" Tableaus, die von einer zentralen Frage vorwärts getrieben werden - und noch größeres Suchtpotenzial haben:


"And that’s ultimately the biggest difference between the Hyperserials and the legendary shows that spawned them: a purer, more intense focus on one linear, series-long plotline. Hyperserials tend to do away with recaps, teasers, and exposition of any kind. They make even less sense when viewed out of order"

Rogério Rocha's curator insight, May 20, 2013 7:23 AM

IN A certain sense, all television is addictive. This should be pretty obvious, given that Americans watch more than five hours a day, on average. At that rate, a person who lives to the age of 80 will spend 21 percent of his or her adult life—the equivalent of 4,175 days, or nearly 13 years—in front of the tube.
