Luca Brigada's curator insight, March 14, 2013 4:39 AM

An interesting article by James Carter is a dramatist, experience designer and producer about what is storytelling and its value:

 

"Transmedia is the art of sharing a narrative over multiple media platforms (print, online, stage, film, social networks), where unique content is delivered through each platform. For example, Fringe, the hit television show, used transmedia to expand its storyworld and reward its biggest fans. [...]"

Is This Transmedia? Wreck-It Ralph

Is This Transmedia? Wreck-It Ralph | Transmedia: Storytelling for the Digital Age | Scoop.it

Mike Vogel:  "Much of the talk about Wreck-It Ralph this week will be about the fact that it comes out in Digital HD  on February 12th–almost a month ahead of the DVD release. I’m all for anything that makes DVDs less relevant, but I think the transmedia strategy behind Wreck-It Ralph is more innovative than releasing a movie digitally."

The Digital Rocking Chair's insight:

Mike Vogel ponders the difference between transmedia and marketing when it comes to Wreck-It Ralph.


Update:  For more on how this applies to indie filmmakers, check out Randy Finch’s Disney's Marketing for Wreck-It Ralph Employs Transmedia Storytelling: A Case Study in Expanding a Film's Storyworld Across Multiple Platforms.
