The Power of Transmedia Experiences

The Power of Transmedia Experiences | Transmedia: Storytelling for the Digital Age | Scoop.it
Imagine entering a room for the first time. If you're like me, you probably look around, take the scene in, and combine all of the different individual elements into one seamless picture of the world you've entered. None of those elements contain the complete story of the room—rather, the combination, arrangement and directed narratives within each one aggregate into a deep, holistic view of the environment. The whole is greater than the parts.

An idea is a fragile thing. And at this point, the idea that we're on the cusp of a new form of storytelling seems to have reached that weird place where much of the world still hasn't accepted it but many of those who have are too busy squabbling over the details to actually focus on doing it.
