Alvaro Liuzzi reminds transmedia-storytellers to think it through the user.
Five times I: Immersion. Users want to enter more deeply into a story and learn more about the story world.Interactivity. Users want to be able to change or influence story elements and interact with other users involved in a global narrative.Integration. The story should be cohesive across various platforms and have some sort of interface with the real world.Impact. The story should inspire the user to act in the real world.

International advocacy campaigns are engaging multiplatform campaigns that can benefit  from co-creation and co-option of shared values through transmedia engagement techniques. James Pamment describes a case study of the Campaign to End Sexual Violence in Conflict.

 

"Audience participation encourages a playful appropriation of assets that enriches the diegetic world with new stories and perspectives, and ultimately strengthens the symbolic universe, its associated brands and the relationship between the owner of the assets and the audience."
