Neil Gaiman’s Hansel & Gretel has an unexpected inspiration

Neil Gaiman’s Hansel & Gretel has an unexpected inspiration | Young Adult and Children's Stories | Scoop.it
Neil Gaiman writes stunningly original stories that can make the skin crawl and the teeth chatter. But his latest work might sound familiar: it’s an adaptation of the Brothers Grimm breadcrumb dropper, Hansel & Gretel.


A collaboration between author Neil Gaiman and illustrator Lorenzo Mattotti for Toon Books, Hansel & Gretel is a swirl of inky lines with our hero and heroine always at a distance, as lost in the chaos of the images as they are in the forest. The setting here is no fairy tale — Gaiman sets his retelling of the story in a war zone. This decision was inspired after visits to two refugee camps in Jordan where Syrian refugees are building their lives as their country continues to fall apart. (Watch: Melissa Fleming: Let’s help refugees thrive, not just survive.)

3. Creating an integrated whole?

I also found that many of the projects still conceived transmedia in terms of the material to which you could give access to an audience—photos, sound bites, side narratives and so on.  Everyone talks of creating an integrated whole but it is not truly that in its heart.  There is still the strong impulse that documentarians have: “I have all this material that won’t fit in a film and wouldn’t it be wonderful to use.” The projects are more sophisticated in their use of the material but there is still a ways to go to live fully within the form itself....

'When the first Hunger Games film decided to cast black actors in the roles of Cinna and Rue, many fans of Collins’s book (who had imagined the characters differently despite the novel’s clear description of their “dark brown” skin color) were upset, but they still went to see the film in droves. In the sequel, Jeffrey Wright was cast as Beetee, who is in fact described as having “ashen” skin by Collins...'

This is no (r)evolution

"Each day there are more of us interactive storytellers. Because we enjoy the freedom of creating with fewer boundaries, because we could not take another “lean-back” century or because it is just that thing to explore right now. But it would be a great loss to engage in the craft of telling interactive stories without knowing where we come from. So there is, a bit of background "

and coordinated entertainment experience. Ideally, each medium makes it own unique contribution to the unfolding of the story.”

In transmedia storytelling, narrative is central to the story, which is told across multiple platforms, and may include sound, images, text, movie and gaming elements. The best part about it is that each of those elements plays an integral part of the narrative. And without experiencing all of those elements, you miss the full story. That’s what makes transmedia storytelling a powerful tool for 21st century literacy and learning.
