Luca Brigada's curator insight, March 19, 2013 6:30 PM

The production that the Secret Cinema crew puts on is a true transmedia experience in the fullest sense of the definition from Henry Jenkins. "Transmedia storytelling represents a process where integral elements of a fiction get dispersed systematically across multiple delivery channels for the purpose of creating a unified and coordinated entertainment experience. Ideally, each medium makes its own unique contribution to the unfolding of the story."
