Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious: Closed or open participation in transmedia? | #transmediascoop | Scoop.it

Transmedia is many times (and in my opinion most often should be) inclusive of the audience and encouraging audience participation in one way or another (just googling ”audience participation in transmedia” yields 80k+ hits, for instance). But then, opinions start to differ, especially regarding the level and the way and the openness of the participation.

Extending stories over various platforms isn’t a new concept, as we noted in our 2011 trend report Transmedia Rising. But transmedia is becoming more pervasive as content creators find new ways to extend their properties and as consumer attention toggles between screens and devices.

transmedia - Boing Boing | #transmediascoop | Scoop.it

I watched this for about 40 minutes this morning and was really struck by how tight the production was, funny, well-written, well-acted, thoughtfully composed, with clever use of the "transmedia" elements. This is damned good stuff.

Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious: Trust in Transmedia

Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious: Trust in Transmedia | #transmediascoop | Scoop.it

How can I as a creator achieve the level of trust that will not only make people want to watch and take part of my new content, but also advocate the content onwards to their friends and acquaintances? And as, for instance, participation and co-creation – User Contributed Content – implies that people have a great deal of trust in me as a creator and provider to a) offer them the experience they assume that they will get and b) take care of whatever it is that they have created, in the best way possible, that trust needs to be earned.

I have written from time to time here about my travels to Brazil and my wonderful engagement with the people who are shaping the creative industries down there. It is a country which has embraced my ideas with a passion that I have seen few other places, and in return, I have fallen in love with their culture, their people, their landscape, and their media.
