The Digital Rocking Chair's insight:

 

Christy Admiraal:  "There’s no question that anyone who considers himself or herself part of a fandom will have a different read on a piece of media from someone on the outside—whether it’s due to taking in all supplemental material, shipping a certain pairing, participating in fan theorizing, or some combination thereof—but exactly how does their experience differ from a reader or regular viewer who’s never dived any deeper into non-canonical material?"

Manesha's curator insight, February 17, 4:00 PM

Le Transmedia Storytelling représente le fait de raconter une histoire cohérente éclatée sur plusieurs plateformes médiatiques dans le but de créer une expérience globale. L’objectif est de déployer un univers cohérent où chaque élément narratif vient enrichir les autres. Ce procédé permet de multiplier les points d’entrée dans l’univers et ainsi toucher une plus grande audience.

Telling Stories: Lina Srivastava Talks About Transmedia Activism (Part One) | Transmedia: Storytelling for the Digital Age | Scoop.it
The Digital Rocking Chair's insight:


Henry Jenkins:  "As my student Geoff Long likes to say, transmedia is an adjective, not a noun, and as such, it needs something to modify. Much of the conversation here has centered around transmedia entertainment, transmedia storytelling, or perhaps transmedia branding and transmedia learning. But, when the word transmedia modifies activism or mobilization, there is no more important voice in the world today than Lina Srivastava. In her hands, transmedia becomes a verb — something we do to make a difference in the world."
