Muy interesante.
Joseph McCaleb's curator insight, October 13, 2013 8:00 AM

In my Good Stories class, I (Joseph) push for participatory engagement in at least two ways: 1) include multiple versions of the story, & 2) work on multiple levels of explanation: archetypal, local, personal, & particular (to adapt slightly the terms explicated by Bryan Boyd in Origin of Stories). We construct digital media projects that require authentic images, meaning ones the producer "owns" instead of grabbing from Google. The discourses often take points of resonance and venture more into explorations, amplifications, & imaginations rather than traditional narratives.

The Dawn of Modern Transmedia Storytelling: Star Wars

The Dawn of Modern Transmedia Storytelling: Star Wars | Writing in a Digital Age | Scoop.it

Jason Hamilton:  "It's impossible to track down exactly when transmedia began to take effect as a major form of storytelling. As with any movement, it built up bit by bit, and is still gaining momentum. However, almost anyone with any knowledge in the area would agree that one of the biggest early influences was the film Star Wars and the pop culture phenomenon it started."
