Is Ford becoming a Transmedia Production Company?

Is Ford becoming a Transmedia Production Company? | #transmediascoop | Scoop.it

Ford Motor Company has been quietly stepping into the transmedia arena as a producer, beginning in 2009 with the “Fiesta Moment” social media campaign, where 100 Ford Fiesta vehicles were given to non-professional spokespeople or marketers to use, drive and then comment on via Twitter and other social media outlets.

A Look At The World of the Clockwork Watch

A Look At The World of the Clockwork Watch | #transmediascoop | Scoop.it

Possibly the greatest thing about the steampunk genre and aesthetic is that it pulls you in and almost forces you to interact and create. Exquisite craftsmanship or an outlandish device will catch your eye and often inspire you to put your own distinct spin on an idea. The Clockwork Watch does exactly this and to such a degree that seems insulting to simply be called "immersive".

Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious: Transmedia and fiction in television | #transmediascoop | Scoop.it

I read an interesting article on the success story of Game of Thrones a couple of days ago, over at Lost Remote. GoT has been one of the transmedia marketing success stories I’ve pointed to in talks and articles over the past year, what with their ”Smells of Westeros” and ”Food of Westeros” campaigns.

Transmedia navigation and schools | informationliteracy

Transmedia, however, is a paradigm shift for me and, I think, for my school. Teachers like to use tools to implement their content, they don’t really encourage students to consume and hunt for data across platforms. Nor would they encourage students to create a transmedia story as I think I understand it.

Modern Storytelling: Enhanced or Spawned by Technology? | What Would The Internet Do? | #transmediascoop | Scoop.it

This panel-style blog post was spawned by my recent interest in the game Zombies, Run! As someone who is passionate about the Zombie genre, but not at all passionate about exercise, I was excited to find a fusion of mobile technology, storytelling, and real-world activity that would help gamify my healthy habits.

Maximum PC | The Game Boy: Why Transmedia Gaming's Totally Missing The Point - Page 1 | #transmediascoop | Scoop.it

Today, though, transmedia finds itself charmed out of its cramped niche jar by a robotic melody made up entirely of buzzwords. Brand synchronicity. Facebook integration. IOS F2P FPS GPS. Many of these social extensions claim to be “casual” experiences to help ease in new players as well, but – as soon as they start hurling “unlock items in the PC/console game,” “download the app,” and “pester all your friends to procede more quickly” at folks who haven't touched a game since Tetris – the whole notion of simplicity explodes into a dusty haze of confusion.

How does a Transmedia Producer make money?

It’s a simple question, and one that drives a surprising number of people to this blog. Accordingly, I’m going to outline in basic terms the way that a Transmedia Producer can make a living, and the contractual possibilities that might lead to considerable growth in the future. As ever with articles in which I discuss legal relationships, I suggest hiring an experienced lawyer to work out the terms of your deals.

Transmedia Hollywood 3: Rethinking Creative Relations

Transmedia Hollywood 3: Rethinking Creative Relations | #transmediascoop | Scoop.it

Transmedia Hollywood 3 just passed on Friday and like the two years previous, aimed to work out some of the prospects of the futures of entertainment. While many were looking for a singular vision of the future the general consensus from all four panels was that a unified business model to deal with the future of entertainment in a transmedia world is not probable. We are still in a stage where the successes in a contemporary entertainment world are happy accidents heavily contextualized in their own circumstances, only to be unsuccessfully copied by other stories.
