Must Catch: Immersive theatre company reinterprets Kafka's The Trial for digital age (Wired UK)

Must Catch: Immersive theatre company reinterprets Kafka's The Trial for digital age (Wired UK) | The_storyFormula: story worlds & wearables! | Scoop.it
An immersive theatre company called Retz has reinterpreted two of Franz Kafka's works -- The Trial and In The Penal Colony -- for the internet age in an interactive performance that sees audience members travel around East London.

 

The production is a large-scale interactive story where audience members follow protagonist Joseph K through a series of locations in East London (including Shoreditch Town Hall and the Rose Lipman building) as he comes to terms with his mysterious arrest. Audience members experience the story in a series of one-on-one encounters with some of the 47 cast members and find themselves lured into helping Joseph K. What they say to the actors will be noted, disseminated via the web, and potentially used against them by other cast members at a later moment.

 

Retz founder Felix Mortimer told Wired.co.uk: "The actors and stage manager all use Twitter accounts set to private to quickly communicate pictures and information about audience members to each other and subtly thread it into performance. I suppose it's a database on the fly and a good way to tag and keep track of our audience members and quickly make them feel like they are bleeding digital information -- which is the main thrust of the piece." The team also uses Twilio for making phone calls during the performance..."

Visual.ly’s new Google Analytics tool sends you weekly Web metric reports as infographics

Visual.ly’s new Google Analytics tool sends you weekly Web metric reports as infographics | The_storyFormula: story worlds & wearables! | Scoop.it

"We're big fans of Visual.ly here at TNW, ever since it launched as the home of data visualization and infographics way back in July 2011.

The platform has evolved somewhat since then, launching Visual.ly Create for users to create their own infographics with ease, before going on to roll out a complete redesign with social features last July. And then in October, Visually unveiled a new marketplace to help put its community of infographic designers to work

So, when we got wind of Visual.ly’s latest launch, naturally we were all ears (well, eyes). The Israeli startup has launched a new visual reporting tool designed to bring Google Analytics to your email inbox courtesy of a weekly infographic....

Excellent Post: Five Different Routes to a Web Series | Filmmaker Magazine | The_storyFormula: story worlds & wearables! | Scoop.it

"The web series can take many shapes, from a no-budget serial made in high-school media classes to Joss Whedon’s Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog to  Netflix’s long-format House of Cards. These are just three of probably thousands of web series out there produced, written, and directed specifically for the Internet. But there are other roads to web series. Here are five of them.

 

The Longish Short Film Repurposed into a Web Series

 

Filmmaking partners Jacob Hensberry and Ken Cook had plan for their short film, Planet X, a stylized, modern romantic comedy with sci-fi leanings. “We were going to use the traditional formula of making a short, getting into some festivals, getting some attention and turning it into a feature,” director Hensberry said. But Cook, his writing and producer partner, knew there was a problem. “I immediately knew that we were screwed on the festival front. [Planet X was] too long and it has a cliffhanger ending..."

For those of you who have been following my posts here for the last few months, you may have noticed I've been talking a lot about how technology has transformed the publishing industry, and how transmedia storytelling has broken down the barriers between a story and it's audience.

But I haven't really gone into the specifics about how this can be put into practice.

Transmedia Tuesday: Maybe You Should Drop Out of School - Mindhut - SparkNotes | The_storyFormula: story worlds & wearables! | Scoop.it

Most transmedia stories are more or less fluff. Sure, they engage the reader/viewer/listener in a more challenging and sophisticated way than traditional stories, but in the end, the stories themselves are about ghosts, or aliens, or time-travel, or some other such escapist genre (To be clear, that's big part of why we love them). Every now and then, however, a transmedia story comes along to tackle something bigger, more serious, and more real. One such story is Ed Zed Omega, by Andi McDaniel and Ken Eklund.

Four criteria for evaluating IP and transmedia potential

Four criteria for evaluating IP and transmedia potential | The_storyFormula: story worlds & wearables! | Scoop.it

A quick post on one thing I’ve been looking into lately; with all the rage around multiplatform storytelling, transmedia storytelling etc, many of the examples and projects up right now are ”fresh” transmedia projects, fairly recently developed and released. At the same time, there are countless great narratives already in existence that could work wonderfully if looked at from a transmedia angle.

 

A lot of these will be on display in Cannes the coming days during MIP, but often not even the IP owners will have realized the transmedia potential inherited in their property. Here are four points that matter when it comes to evaluating a TV IP and its transmedia potential:

 

Story

 

There’s no contest here, at least not for me. Story is everything when it comes to transmedia. Is it a compelling and immersive story that has the weight and the bones to stretch to different platforms?...
