Soundplay: the Meeting of Music and Games | TransChordian | #transmediascoop | Scoop.it

A transmedia campaign is only as good as its co-creators. Many originators—filmmakers, authors, musicians—are excellent at their art form, understanding how to use the medium to its best potential. Instead of forcing them to fumble through new and unknown platforms, it is much better to partner with creators who hold an expertise in those areas. These co-creators can advise and produce excellent extensions, fully utilizing the benefits of other platforms.

Transmedia Storytelling | Pass It On

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. Unlike the traditional method of simply adapting, say, a book into a movie, this type of writing weaves the story among the various media so that each complements, or even relies upon, the others. 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.

How Transmedia Storytelling Could Revolutionize Documentary Filmmaking

How Transmedia Storytelling Could Revolutionize Documentary Filmmaking | #transmediascoop | Scoop.it

An emerging avenue for documentary filmmakers to reach new audiences -- and funds -- is through Transmedia Storytelling. Transmedia Storytelling is the practice of telling a single story with multiple platforms and formats, often using digital tools. Often shortened to simply Transmedia, it can allow documentary filmmakers to not only reach new audiences, but also to create unique educational components to enhance their film's message and provide ways to partner with companies and brands, which can mean welcome financial relief to lighten the burden of the high cost of filmmaking.
