Transmedia: A Filmmakers Foe or Ally?

Transmedia: A Filmmakers Foe or Ally? | Transmedia: Storytelling for the Digital Age | Scoop.it

Julian Cheevers:  "There’s increasingly a lot of talk about Transmedia storytelling; the idea of taking pieces of a story and systematically putting them across different media touch points for the purposes of creating a unified and coordinated entertainment experience. But why is Transmedia storytelling important for independent filmmakers in particular?"

The Digital Rocking Chair's insight:

In a sentence ... "Transmedia has an element of marketing to it at times, but when done well it’s simply good storytelling, an extension of the film experience". Do you agree?

The best point touched here, IMO: Greater availability of tools demanding more of artists in order to differentiate their work from their peers'.

This could be a subtle shift in content creation. It might work, it might not, but I think test it. It might work for your company/market and not others..

Love this story of a DIY approach to storytelling. And lo and behold it was heard and received by the Academy! Go indie media go!

Zan Chandler's curator insight, February 25, 2013 10:05 PM

And it actually won the Oscar!

 

While the amount of footage the filmmaker needed to make with his iPhone was small in terms of the overall, I think this sends a number of signals. 1 -  consumer tech is getting closer and closer to industry standards and used in the right way can be effective; and 2 - this is another example of compelling content created with a DIY ethic.

 

I look forward to seeing more examples of where filmmaking can evolve.

Ryan Lewis is one of the co-creators and producers of "Chosen," an original series starring Milo Ventimiglia that airs exclusively in the U.S. on the streaming site Crackle. The show, which is written and directed by Ben Ketai, is a rarity in the digital space outside of Netflix, where comedy and short form still rule the day. "Chosen" is an action series made up of six half-hour episodes that take place at a breakneck pace, with Ventimiglia's character plunged into a mysterious kill-or-be-killed game.
