Eye On the Ball: Transmedia

Eye On the Ball: Transmedia | #transmediascoop | Scoop.it

A few years back still photo cameras and HD video cameras converged, which was and still is a big deal. The other convergence, which doesn’t get as much hype is the convergence of video, still photos, text and audio into one form. One term for this is transmedia and it looks like a zeitgeist to me. From the creative/creator point of view, this new form (or is it formless?) is nuts because 1. it’s undefined and 2. you have to be good at more than one thing to really take advantage of it’s potential.

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.

The latest StoryCode event had some good advice and some good links to follow up. A couple of things were missing though, if I look at it from my angle. The following couple of things need, in my book, to be taken into consideration if you want to raise funding for a transmedia project.

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.

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".

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.
