Quote "

I'm not a fan of the word "transmedia" but Extension 756 is not only a transmedia project, it has the potential to be transmedia at it's absolute finest. Soderbergh's focus on integrating storytelling into an e-commerce expereince starts with the name of the site itself. "Extension 756" is taken from a line that's spoken by Harrison Ford's character every time he answers the phone in Coppola's still under appreciated masterpiece, The Conversation. 

...But what interests me most about Extension 756 is that Soderbergh has created a personal sandbox that's impossible to create in any other medium. He's given himself a place to experiment with multiple "businesses" at the same time, and have a ton of fun while doing it. When you make a film or write a book you have to write a beginning and an end.

But with Extension 756, Soderbergh can extend his narrative and update the site not only whenever he wants, but also as much or as little as he desires. Because of this, he has given himself a freedom and a control that doesn't exist in most industries, especially studio filmmaking.

Absolute Leseempfehlung! 

Das Phänomen des "Binge-watching"s (Komakucken?!) und "Hyperserien"


“I’ve always said that I don’t see my show as serialized so much as hyperserialized,” explains Vince Gilligan, creator of AMC’s Breaking Bad. “That is something that, honestly, I wouldn’t have been allowed to do 10 or 15 years ago.”

Während Serien wie Sopranos, The Wire oder Deadwood zuerst ihre Charaktere entwickelten und die Handlung erst an zweiter Stelle kam, entwerfen heutige "Hyperserien" Tableaus, die von einer zentralen Frage vorwärts getrieben werden - und noch größeres Suchtpotenzial haben:


"And that’s ultimately the biggest difference between the Hyperserials and the legendary shows that spawned them: a purer, more intense focus on one linear, series-long plotline. Hyperserials tend to do away with recaps, teasers, and exposition of any kind. They make even less sense when viewed out of order"

Rogério Rocha's curator insight, May 20, 2013 7:23 AM

IN A certain sense, all television is addictive. This should be pretty obvious, given that Americans watch more than five hours a day, on average. At that rate, a person who lives to the age of 80 will spend 21 percent of his or her adult life—the equivalent of 4,175 days, or nearly 13 years—in front of the tube.

Quote " Immerse People In The Narrative

The Walking Dead, the famous comic and now TV show, used a polling Web app (AMC’s Story Sync, if you like marketing-speak) to ask viewers questions and show related content as an episode was being broadcast on TV. While the app was simply timed to each scene, it was an experiment in multi-screen storytelling that invited audience participation, not just audience attention. Polling has a gimmicky feel to it, but that probably came about as a result of Hollywood pressure and doesn’t reflect the value of the concept in general.

ARTE France and its associated producers continue to explore web documentary, participatory fiction, online magazine and many other transmedia creative formats. Among these, Type:Rider is an outstanding example – both in its subject matter and its auteurist vision of video game design. 

 

Three gaming experiences are presented to explore the world of typography. First, there is a video game (accessible via web browser, smartphone or tablet) which spans the history of typography, with each level to a different typographical style, from “Gothic” to “Pixel.” 

 

The game is quite easy to play and operate. The player must guide the colon through a given level from start to finish by collecting the asterisks that block the documents posted concerning typography and its history. These documents include accounts of inventors like Gutenberg and famous type designers like Claude Garamond or Étiennne Didot....

Quote "

Whatever TV looks like in the future, it will be built atop three crucial components: content, intelligence and user experience. A fourth element, known as actually making money, hinges heavily on the "intelligence" part — which is to say, data. 

 

Similarly, we may one day see Google Now for TV. That is, anticipatory content recommendations fueled by your viewing history, social connections and insights inferred from a complex tapestry of data points from across services and devices. 

Recommendations are important (indeed, cracking this code certainly helped put Netflix in a position to win with House of Cards), but they're only the beginning of what's possible when television is fueled by very, very big data. As its video efforts ramp up, Google — like Netflix before it — will be able to factor in mountains of user data to determine not just what to recommend, but what content to buy the exclusive rights to, or even produce outright. 

Unlike other Internet TV shows, these new premium productions will sit within the world's biggest repository of online video. Sure, much of it is garbage, but the sheer scale of the material it has on hand increases Google's ability to smartly serve up relevant, worthwhile videos to people who come to check out its new shows. Not to mention how easy it would be to rope YouTube's casual, cat video-watching users into clicking the play button on their next big TV-style program. House of Cats, anyone?"

Eric DeMont's curator insight, June 3, 2013 3:10 PM

Key elements in the video (TV) marketplace of the future include:

-          Content

-          User Experience

-          Intelligence

In application, intelligence leads both content development and user experience in that big data can be mined to understand audience preferences and behaviors and even help predict a video’s (episodic show or movie) success based on an micro analysis of historical content in relation to likes, comments, tweets, plays, replays, etc.  This will help content produces to deliver great content and subsequently user experiences by being able to analyze not only the entire video in aggregate but specific scenes, characters and other content details.  Certainly some companies are better positioned to deliver upon this success  than others and Google, Netflix, Hulu and Microsoft are leading contenders.  I think Disney would also be in the mix as well as other progressive studios.  One thing is for certain, our viewing experiences will change, and likely for the better.

I’ve recently been working more on my own fiction, so I was intrigued to learn about two literary projects that exploit the possibilities of digital publishing. Their strategies can be extrapolated to film and transmedia projects for producers who aren’t interested in writing the next great American novel.

 

The Karada comes from an international team of writers and transmedia artists: the core team includes Carrie Cutforth-Young of Queen Spade Creative in Toronto, Tom Liljeholm of Tea4Two Entertainment in Sweden, and Jim Martin, an independent writer for Heroes and other projects, in Los Angeles. The literary property launched last September and is designed as a prequel to and proof of concept for a television series entitled All Your Fates, plus a graphic novel and other media. Part romance, part thriller, and many parts science-fiction, The Karada‘s story follows one David Blunt as he’s rebuffed by the girl of his dreams but then comes across a way to access various parts of the multiverse. Determined to win her heart in at least one universe, he starts traveling to different dimensions to woo her — but traveling through the multiverse, and meeting different versions of the same people (including yourself), brings its share of dangers as well..."

"Defiance": Wer das Game spielt und die Serie sieht, hat mehr davon | Transmedia + Storyuniverse | Scoop.it
Das Science-Fiction-Abenteuer "Defiance" ist gleichermaßen Computerspiel und Fernsehserie – und das bislang größte Experiment, eine Geschichte transmedial zu erzählen.
Dorothea Martin's insight:

Wie transmedial und interaktiv es dann wirklich wird? Man wird sehen...

 

"Geschehnisse aus dem Spiel können erst recht nicht in die Story eingepflegt werden. "Wir können nur vorausschauend zwei unterschiedliche Versionen einer Binnenhandlung drehen", sagt auch Jeff Pabst. Wenn etwa eine bedeutsame Schlacht im Spiel für eine Fraktion entschieden wird, sollte sich das in der linearen Story widerspiegeln.

Spannend wird es aber erst, wenn bekannte Spielerfiguren oder Insider-Witze der Community in der Serie auftauchen, wenn es einen regelrechten Austausch zwischen den beiden Ebenen gibt. Dafür allerdings muss das Experiment Defiancedie erste Staffel überleben, und das Spiel muss weiterhin gespielt werden."
