Toy makers use transmedia storytelling to drive sales | Goose

Toy makers use transmedia storytelling to drive sales | Goose | #transmediascoop | Scoop.it
Ever since the original Star Wars films made more money from toy merchandising than from ticket sales, Hollywood and toy makers have recognized the power of linking toys to popular films.

An engaging story-line proved so effective at driving sales that toy giants like Hasbro and others started producing children’s television programming based around popular toy lines in the 1980s and 1990s.

Remember those cartoon classics like G.I. Joe, Transformers, My Little Pony, Conan the Barbarian and The Tick? They were all produced by Sunbow Entertainment, an animation studio run by a Hasbro-funded advertising agency from New York.

Simon Staffans's insight:

"I spent my early years in a chaotic environment. I saw the effects of poverty, crime and violence on families, on kids my age. I haven’t forgotten that. It’s still there and not nearly enough is being done about it. Left unchecked, these are what lead to corruption, extremism, organized crime, terrorism and war.

 

My salvation was story: the stories my mom told me at bedtime, the optimistic future of Star Trek, the nobility and perseverance of Frodo Baggins, the true stories of leaders like Gandhi and Martin Luther King, Jr. I found the codes in these stories and was somehow able to transpose them onto the map of my own life. Why can’t this work for other people? Why can’t transmedia be applied toward inspiring, motivating, and activating individuals, communities and even entire nations facing crises?"

 

good in-depth interview with Jeff!

Simon Staffans:  "Jeff Gomez of Starlightrunner Entertainment is someone most people in the transmedia field recognize. An evangelist, a creative, a renowned producer – Jeff’s been an inspiration for me and many others over the past years. I’ve been keeping close tabs on his and Starlightrunner’s activities, and entertainment franchises are definitely no longer the only things on their plate. With that in mind, I took the opportunity to talk a bit more in-depth with Jeff about their activities, and about the future of transmedia on the whole" ...
