Trending: Transmedia

It’s a nice reminder that transmedia is not only a surging trend but has a history, global reach, and diverse range of perspectives, purposes, and forms

Confessions of an Aca/Fan: Archives: Inventing the Digital Medium: An Interview with Janet Murray (Part One)

Confessions of an Aca/Fan: Archives: Inventing the Digital Medium: An Interview with Janet Murray (Part One) | #transmediascoop | Scoop.it

first met Janet Murray when I arrived at MIT almost 25 years ago. At the time, she was working on her book, Hamlet on the Holodeck: The Future of Narrative in Cyberspace, while I was working on Textual Poachers: Television Fans and Participatory Culture. Murray, along with the members of the Narrative Intelligence Reading Group, was an early guide for me to the emerging realm of digital culture and helped to shape my thinking in ways that I will never be able to fully acknowledge.

Principles of Social Interaction Design | Johnny Holland | #transmediascoop | Scoop.it

Imperfect and unfinished as any project on contemporary products will be, my Principles of Social Interaction Design is now available for free download. This project has taken a couple of years, and in places bears the marks of a theory worked out over time. Some of my core concepts appeared in my blog posts first. These include the idea of frames — for both conceptualizing interactions, as well as for design thinking. Concepts of mediation, of symbolic tokens, of realtime streams may also be familiar from topics I have blogged about over the years. I have developed these into simple logics.

Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious: What do you want transmedia to do for you? | #transmediascoop | Scoop.it

Transmedia is a buzzword to many. For others, it’s a word that promises gateways into new experiences. For yet others, it’s a term that is filled with challenges and possibilities on a storytelling and creative level. It all comes down to one simple question: what do you want transmedia to do for you?

Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious: The Future of Transmedia | #transmediascoop | Scoop.it

Transmedia is not ”there” yet, wherever we envisage ”there” to be. We have experimental projects, we have big-budget marketing campaigns, we have art projects, we have crowdfunded projects and any mix between these. Very few of these will have a significant impact on other transmedia projects, as all new projects need to be handled from the ground up as unique challenges.

Simon Staffans: Why Transmedia is a no-brainer for TV | #transmediascoop | Scoop.it

There’s no denying it. The audience has moved on. It’s no longer a question of whether a show should be developed for second screen action, for interactivity and for a socially connected, proactive audience. It doesn’t matter whether anything in television is developed with this in mind or not, it’s happening anyway.
