...A New Approach

 

The way I write has fundamentally changed. I used to outline or write a treatment — maybe create backstory or generate character notes. From there I'd move into constructing a three-act screenplay. Since I tend to work in the horror genre, I'd often find myself adhering to scripting conventions — scare in the first five pages, introduce all my main characters before page 15 — not to mention a host of other trappings that dictated the way in which I told a story. Convention dictated that authorship was within my hands and the more thought-out and developed the script was, the less likely it would be subject to outside interference. Also, not to mention, the intended experience from an audience perspective was a passive one. They would sit, watch and hopefully enjoy and then maybe tell someone else about it.

 

This is no longer the case. We are now in a time of open creativity when amateurs and professionals are collaborating around media in ways similar to how those in the open-source software movement work together to develop, share and maintain software code. As this emerging participatory culture becomes more common within media it will forever change the relationship between creator and audience. The audience will become collaborators and, ironically, could replace distributors, especially if filmmakers can efficiently cross-pollinate the audiences that they build with other filmmakers, musicians, game designers and/or software developers.

 

The Concept Of Story Architecture

 

What was once a single-format design for me is changing. I now consider my process akin to architecture, where storytelling, technology, gaming, delivery and experience design work together to serve the stories I wish to tell.

 

The process starts with the creation of a storyworld bible, a document that provides an overview of the experience that I wish to create. It shows the relationships between storylines, characters, locations and interactions online and in the real world. Media consumption habits of the audience are considered and there is focus placed on how to build story bridges that provide seamless flow across devices and screens.......

Publishing Digital Book Apps for Kids In the Spotlight with Dan Poynter

Publishing Digital Book Apps for Kids In the Spotlight with Dan Poynter | Young Adult and Children's Stories | Scoop.it

The publishing landscape is changing and many authors have chosen to bring their own work to market as independent publishers.  According to Jim Barnes, of the Independent Publishers Book Awards, there are more than 1.2 million books being independently published each year.  He goes on to say that many authors are realizing that in a fast-changing marketplace, independent publishing offers the flexibility to succeed. Last month I had the opportunity to attend the first Dan Poynter’s Global eBook Awards ceremony in Santa Barbara, California.  Dan Poynter is a pioneer in book writing, producing and marketing and he is very generous with his knowledge which he freely shares with fellow writers about what it takes to be a successful author ...

Nieman Reports | The Future of Storytelling: A Participatory Endeavor

Nieman Reports | The Future of Storytelling: A Participatory Endeavor | Young Adult and Children's Stories | Scoop.it
At the Center for Future Storytelling, researchers envision how technology can give people more control over TV programs they encounter and stories they follow.

 

Gardner: What was discussed at the Story 3.0 gathering?

 

Bove: One topic was a project from my group called “surround vision” in which we are saying “let’s take your high-definition television set and add augmented reality to it.” What that means is you’re watching a debate, a talk show, an entertainment program, a sporting event, and it’s the same thing everybody else can see. So you’d say, “I want to see the audience’s reaction to what Jay [Leno] just said.” On “The Tonight Show” there’s always a camera pointed at the audience, but most of the time the feed doesn’t go out. What if those additional video feeds were available and all I had to do was take my iPhone and hold it up and look around behind me? Or during a debate I could look at the reactions of the other candidates to what the person at the podium just said. I would not then be relying on the producer providing the video to decide which view I ought to see. Or for a sporting event, I may want to look at the other end of the field than what they are showing right now. The field is surrounded by cameras, so video is being shot.

 

We are looking at a variety of content ranging from entertainment to sports to news and public affairs....

50 Shades of Teen Noir: Niall Leonard’s Crusher | Everyday eBook

50 Shades of Teen Noir: Niall Leonard’s Crusher | Everyday eBook | Young Adult and Children's Stories | Scoop.it

Niall Leonard, the husband of Fifty Shades of Grey author E.L. James, pens a thriller for young adults -- welcoming readers into a whole new (and age-appropriate) world. In Crusher, Leonard brings to bear a landscape of heroes who become villains, cops on the take, dangerous damsels in distress and at least one ruthless killer with a heart of gold -- a joyous hearkening to the fiction of Alistair MacLean or Irvine Welsh for the teenage set.
