Robert Pratten:  "Transmedia storytellers will often include live events and real world actions in their experiences. As a company that wants to blur the boundary between fiction and reality, we  [Transmedia Storyteller] spend a lot of time thinking how creators should tackle this."

Debbie Elicksen 's curator insight, June 19, 2014 11:22 PM

The story should really be the focus in the middle, then it branches out into sub-stories -- that both stand alone and also pull more depth into the main story at the same time.

Creating transmedia games and stories at state museums

 

"Transmedia Indiana was a big proof of concept idea, one meant to show what can be built with a willing partner, experienced designers, a clear direction, and an interdisciplinary team.

 

This is a giant project, one that illustrates a variety of threads that can be pulled to create smaller versions of digital, experiential stories."

...and hear we go again, something I said a while ago: why are we calling it so many buzzwords when in realities it multimedia, at least that's where is started and in that it defines it more completely on so many levels!

Cheryl Frose's curator insight, June 12, 2014 6:03 PM

Transmedia, a broad descriptive word that literally translated means “across media” and encompasses many strategies that transverse industries, is generally regarded as the use of multiple media platforms to tell a story or story experience. Though the word “transmedia” is thought to have entertainment franchise origins, its adaptation for education purposes is both valuable and becoming more and more common. While teachers like Sansing are using coding and programming in their language arts instruction, others are taking advantage of increasingly sophisticated apps and interactive media for classroom use.

David Collet's curator insight, June 12, 2014 9:28 PM

I guess this another favorite topic for me. Imagine using transmedia to teach maths and include cross over language components. After all maths has a language of its own.

Dr. Pamela Rutledge's curator insight, June 18, 2014 12:15 PM

Transmedia approaches encourage (or even force) people to actively acknowledge and design for a fluid and multi-dimensional, rather than linear, media environment.  For the human brain, stories are not constrained by what's on the page. Transmedia begins to replicate how we think and encourages producers to innovate in each platform to create multiple touchpoints that facilitate our natural ability to imagine, project, expand and experience.

"I’ve written elsewhere that we’re living through a Cambrian Explosion in the ecology of media. Suddenly — if you think about the last few decades as a fragment of the timeline that stretches back to before cave painting — we can tell stories in so many media forms and on so many media channels that it would make Richard Wagner jealous enough to steal a magic ring. We can make our kunstwerk more gesamt than ever before."

a great strategic move: 2nd tier heroes who won't make it to big screen deployed for TV shows. Spinning an old asset is always one of the best marketing decisions you can make.

Henrik Safegaard - Cloneartist's curator insight, November 9, 2013 5:36 PM

Disney/Marvel has inked a rather epic deal with Netflix: four series with 13 episodes each, all leading up to a final team-up miniseries. The subjects of those series: Daredevil, Luke Cage, Iron Fist and Jessica Jones. And if that wasn’t a sweet enough deal for fans, the deal is also part of a broader arrangement between the two that grants Netflix exclusive, first-run subscription rights to Disney and Marvel films - See more at: http://www.thenerdmachine.com/marvel-at-netflix-intersecting-comics-and-transmedia/#sthash.VrVc0Tpb.dpuf

How to Slice the Transmedia Narrative Arc

How to Slice the Transmedia Narrative Arc | The_storyFormula: story worlds & wearables! | Scoop.it

“If you’re pitching an idea to Hollywood execs today, you’d better not go in with a script,” says Steve. “You need a transmedia solution. The script is just item four or five on the list. You’re not a writer anymore, you’re a transmedia producer.”

Ezri Carlebach:  '“It’s storytelling, Jim, but not as we know it,” as Spock famously didn’t say. The crew of the Enterprise – Kirk and Spock in particular – blazed a trail for a new kind of storytelling on television and then, in the hands of their, shall we say, ardent fans, went even further by appearing in an entirely new form, which laid the groundwork for today’s transmedia storytelling.'

Michelle Gilstrap's curator insight, July 22, 2013 11:39 AM

Transmedia is more than just having a script,it is all media now and your fans will tell you what they want if you don't provide for them.

With media becoming pervasive and every one of us capable of making some degree of noise, how do you cut through a 'chaotic storm of omni-casting for many' to reach your target audience?

US based transmedia luminary Jeff Gomez, who has worked on 'blockbuster universes' such as Pirates of the Caribbean, Halo and Avatar, shares some of his expertise with Fiona Milburn.

Jeff Gomez is always very generous with his expertise and this week he agreed to answer some questions on how smaller content producers can utilise transmedia storytelling techniques in their own work.
