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....
