Gary Hayes's curator insight, February 5, 2013 12:40 PM

Because audience engagement is central to this form of storytelling, make sure whichever platform you're using gets readers to interact in a very simple way. "Interface is king; nothing kills an ambitious multiplatform effort faster than a clunky point of entry," Jessica Clark, AIR media strategist, wrote in a yearly roundup of exemplary transmedia projects.

Cinema and second screen applications: focus on the film App and the Disney Second Screen experience

Cinema and second screen applications: focus on the film App and the Disney Second Screen experience | Young Adult and Children's Stories | Scoop.it

'Offering parallel narrations, scene enrichment and new leisure experiences, the film App and Disney Second Screen are revolutIonising the cinema experience.


In recent years, cinema attendance has been decreasing in mature markets, particularly within the European Union, where attendance fell 4.1% in 2013. In order to combat these falling numbers and to bring young audiences back to cinemas, industry stakeholders are developing with highly creative solutions. One of these approaches, known as second screen applications, has become a popular way of enriching the cinema experience.

 

Since the film App was released in the Netherlands in 2013 as the first second screen experience in cinema, other stakeholders such as Disney have jumped on the bandwagon...'

Jeni Mawter's insight:

Writing for parallel screens is not just relevant for cinema. Writers of all stories for children and young adults should be exploring the idea of writing for multiple screens!

The producers behind 'The Giver' tried to keep film out of teen-romance land

The producers behind 'The Giver' tried to keep film out of teen-romance land | Young Adult and Children's Stories | Scoop.it
The biggest fear for the author who gave us “The Giver” was that her dystopian novel would be reduced to a mushy teen romance on the big screen.

Jeni Mawter's insight:

What would Lois Lowry change in the book The Giver?

 

The character Chief Elder (the face of the orderly dystopian society, played by Meryl Streep in the film) would become more central to the plot.

Extremely interesting discussion by Christy Dena about pervasive games, the fictional world we create overlaps with the player’s world. Dena includes external links to important studies and resources. I did not know what QWOP meant until this post (QWOP is a 2008 ragdoll-based Flash game created by former Cut Copy bassist Bennett Foddy. Players control an athlete named "Qwop" using only the Q, W, O, and P keys)
