Transmedia Storytelling | Pass It On | #transmediascoop | Scoop.it

Transmedia storytelling, like the name suggests, describes a method of using multiple media (books, videos, web, etc.) to tell a story.

Transmedia is not new, but it is growing in popularity, and here are a couple of transmedia stories that I’ve enjoyed and am currently tracking.

Why Transmedia is Like the Big Red Squid

Why Transmedia is Like the Big Red Squid | #transmediascoop | Scoop.it
I am a little obsessed with the Big Red Squid, a.k.a. Humbolt Squid or the Kraken. I even named my company after it - Red Squid Lab. I am also a little obsessed with transmedia storytelling. I think it is a fascinating way to tell stories.

Five transmedia projects – autumn 2012 | #transmediascoop | Scoop.it

All of a sudden, it’s autumn again and we’re coming to the home stretch of the year. Fear not, even though the days grow shorter and the weather colder (unless you’re reading this down under, in which case I envy you a little bit) it looks like we’ll have plenty to take part of and be excited about in the realm of transmedia. Here are five projects that in one way or another have caught my eye during the past weeks.

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.

New Media M.A. Research Blog | Media Studies, University of Amsterdam | Transmedia in the Netherlands | #transmediascoop | Scoop.it

Since November 2011 I work as an editor for Virtueel Platform, the knowledge institute for digital culture in the Netherlands. I write about Best Practices; good examples of Dutch digital culture. The projects vary from interactive installations, games, apps, media art and digital archives, to theater productions, music instruments and exhibitions.

Every year we choose a couple of topics that we focus on. One of the topics of 2012 is transmedia, and how digital techniques are changing the way we tell stories. Last summer I did research on how transmedia is emerging in the Netherlands and what struggles there are in that field.
