Hollywood Has a Big Millennial Problem

Hollywood Has a Big Millennial Problem | Transmedia: Storytelling for the Digital Age | Scoop.it
The Digital Rocking Chair's insight:

 

Derek Thompson:  "The problem for Hollywood isn’t that audiences are ignoring sequels. The problem for Hollywood is that audiences are ignoring everything that isn’t a sequel, adaptation, or reboot. The market for films based on stories that aren’t already famous is threadbare. These sort of stories exist in entertainment, but consumers, and particularly young consumers, are looking for them outside of darkened theaters."

Construir y diseñar los personajes mediante informes.  No todo es ficción, en el caso de Inside Out los personajes surgieron de los cerebros pensantes de Pixar, sin embargo, Arlo y Spot tienen tintes de verdad. El storytelling no debe buscar la sencillez, el público - aunque sean pequeños - son capaces de entender complejidades.

Kristin Russell's curator insight, December 10, 2015 2:34 AM

This article gives us seven tips for emotional storytelling through Pixar. Though cartoon movies may not be emotional to all adults they do stir up emotions in some. Emotional appeals are a great way for your audience to connect to you.

Know Your Audience: How Studios Failed at the First Rule of Storytelling in 2015

Know Your Audience: How Studios Failed at the First Rule of Storytelling in 2015 | Transmedia: Storytelling for the Digital Age | Scoop.it
The Digital Rocking Chair's insight:


Alisha Grauso:  "Hollywood studios failed big in 2015 because they didn't follow a defining principle of storytelling: Know Your Audience."

more...
Nathan Schultz's curator insight, November 25, 2015 4:50 PM

 

An entertaining opinion piece, author Alisha Grauso explains that one of the reasons why so many of the movies that were made in 2015 were box office disasters was because filmmakers did not pay enough attention to what audience members wanted to see.  

 

The Steve Jobs movie, for example.  The fact that the movie was released four years after the man's death, thereby missing the "nostalgia window" in which audiences might have cared enough about Jobs to want to see a movie about him, essentially means that the movie was made without audience interests in mind, which should always be the foremost concern when selling any product.

This is my new must read for everyone. Lassiter's insights about computer graphics (CG) transcend his industry. They offer guidance for UX and web designers (any designer really) and businesses alike. His comments on storytelling and emotion connection are the key to success in design and business. I will be quoting this article for years to come.

 

I would absolutely recommend this to everyone.

How ‘Captain America’ is just one piece of Disney’s plan to reinvent entertainment

How ‘Captain America’ is just one piece of Disney’s plan to reinvent entertainment | Transmedia: Storytelling for the Digital Age | Scoop.it
The Digital Rocking Chair's insight:

 

Michael Cavna:  "Disney is thinking so far beyond sequels — first with its Marvel Cinematic Universe, next with its Star Wars galaxies — that it is now fully, successfully engaging viewers across interlocking narratives. Each time a film like “Civil War” can land with audiences — building upon and/or introducing a dozen key characters — the universe can move not just linearly, but also multilaterally."

Pure genius! Most of us are not in the entertainment business. But what does great entertainment and story telling have to do with great marketing. Answer. Everything.

A very smart play from Disney. You can use this strategy in your business. If you are creative and come up with a plan. If you need some ideas just ask.
