Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious: Ten Advice for Transmedia Storytellers

Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious: Ten Advice for Transmedia Storytellers | #transmediascoop | Scoop.it

Disclosure – the following post is based on a brilliant list about creative photography that Chase Jarvis put up in October, which in turn was inspired by a post by Guy Kawasaki entitled ”What I learned from Steve Jobs”. What I’ve done is port the ten points Chase made to the field of transmedia, as I think they are all pretty crucial points for any creative industry – not least transmedia.

This week, I am going to be sharing a series of five guest blog posts by Brian Clark which are based on a lecture which he gave to the students in the Transmedia Entertainment class I have been teaching in the USC Cinema School. If you follow transmedia closely, you probably already know who Clark is. If you don't, check out some of his astute contributions to this panel from the 2009 Futures of Entertainment conference at MIT.

Silverstring Media » Thoughts from Conferences | #transmediascoop | Scoop.it

In the last two weeks, I attended as many transmedia conferences: Merging Media in Vancouver, and StoryWorld in San Francisco. My head is still reeling from the experience, which I can only describe as “awesome” in every sense of the word.
At both events, I have to say that while many of the panels and speeches were good, and some were very useful (while others were not), it was the people that made each conference easily worth the cost of attending.

Confessions of an Aca/Fan: Archives: Brian Clark on Transmedia Business Models (Part Three) | #transmediascoop | Scoop.it

In the prior two installments, we looked at what might drive the next wave of innovation in storytelling and dissected the patronage business model that dominates the transmedia space today. In this installment and the next, I want to dive deeper into ten different alternative business models that we know work from other media movements in the hopes that they provide some inspiration to other entrepreneurial storytellers. The first handful treats funding and sustainability as the primary challenges: if you don't have access to millions of dollars, just how much capital do you really need? Do you need any at all?

The magic of transmedia storytelling « Creative Supernova | #transmediascoop | Scoop.it

Transmedia marketing is a creative and innovative approach to the way brands reach out to their loyal community of followers.

In essence, it’s the ability to have a number of conversations using a range of different platforms. A key example that a lot of agencies have adopted in recent years is using transmedia marketing for new films that have been released to the public.

So, an almost overwhelming week at Storyworld in San Francisco is over, jet lag is slowly fading, the heaps of work await and it’s time to take stock of what was learned during the conference. From my POV, as a creator and developer of tv formats – multiplatform, cross media, transmedia ones – here are a couple of points:

Pervasive Gaming and Best Practices at StoryWorld | THE LAST WEBLOG

I was at the StoryWorld conference in San Francisco earlier this week. It’s great to see the beginnings of a cohesive community and body of thought emerge around transmedia and evolving narrative — it reminds me of the early days of the community coming together around virtual worlds, and what fun it was to chronicle that.

GAME DESIGN AS NARRATIVE ARCHITECTURE By Henry Jenkins

The relationship between games and story remains a divisive question among game fans, designers, and scholars alike. At a recent academic Games Studies conference, for example, a blood feud threatened to erupt between the self-proclaimed Ludologists, who wanted to see the focus shift onto the mechanics of game play, and the Narratologists, who were interested in studying games alongside other storytelling media.(1) Consider some recent statements made on this issue:

Silverstring Media » Creative Voice: David Varela | #transmediascoop | Scoop.it

This week, we are launching a weekly interview feature called Creative Voice, in which we talk to various transmedia creators doing cool stuff out there. Each of our experiences offers a lot to learn, and we hope to share that as well as some cool projects that are our there — or need support.
We launch this feature by talking to David Varela. I met David at ARGFest in August; he is both a great wit and a great guy — and apparently a great writer. Support the project he’s working on at Clockwork Watch.
