The Digital Rocking Chair's curator insight, February 3, 1:23 PM


Mike Vogel:  "Here’s a dilemma every transmedia producer faces… You discover a new storytelling platform–maybe you get in to their invite-only beta–and you create a story that uses the strengths of that platform. The platform gives you a powerful new way to express yourself interactively, but then something happens. Maybe the startup runs out of funding, gets acquired, or changes their business model. Suddenly the DNA of your story is no longer available to you. Your story can no longer be told."

Really helpful checklist for the novelist (or screenwriter or playwright). 

Henrik Safegaard - Cloneartist's curator insight, August 4, 2013 3:21 AM
1. Not thinking about basic infrastructure.

How do they eat? What do they eat? Who takes away the garbage? Who deals with their bodily wastes? How do they get around? What do the majority of people do to survive? You're not just constructing a society, you're creating an economy. People don't oppress each other for fun — usually, systems of hierarchy and oppression have an economic component to them. Maybe you need a lot of peasants to grow labor-intensive crops, or maybe you need lots of cannon fodder in your space war. Maybe your only source of protein is a weird fungus that needs to be tended by specially trained people. Maybe everybody's eating algae. In any case, there's nothing worse than a fictional world where there are elaborate social structures, which seem completely separated from the realities of food, shelter and clothing.

Having worked on an even smaller RPG project, I've had to build out and consider all aspects of our world both visually and wrt narrative. Responding to situations required designing the society mindset. Without that mindset, we wouldn't have known how to visually represent our world economically, socially aesthetically and politically.

On the loss of control over the narrative. New roles on the interactive documentary (I) | Wolf and Dulci Hour Links | Scoop.it

The intrinsic nature of the conventional documentary has experienced major changes since the advent of this new type of documentary, as a result of today’s new technological landscape.

Jonathan Gottschall:  'In his 1897 book What is Art? the great Russian novelist Leo Tolstoy defined art as “an infection.” Good art, Tolstoy wrote, infects the audience with the storyteller’s emotion and ideas.'

Henrik Safegaard - Cloneartist's curator insight, October 22, 2013 1:52 AM

Jonathan Gottschall is the author The Storytelling Animal: How Stories Make Us Human, published by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt. His work has been featured in the New York Times Magazine, Scientific American, and the Chronicle of Higher Education, among others.

Strange to tell Joseph Campbell's Hero With A Thousand Faces with Lego characters but it flies by faster chan Campbell.
Martin (Marty) Smith's curator insight, January 7, 2013 8:55 PM

Could this 65 slide deck have saved me plowing through Joseph Campbell's Hero With A Thosand Faces? Not really, but its fun and flies by providing ADD insight into the basis of all stories.
