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....

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.
