Transmedia: between augmented storytelling and immersive practices

Transmedia: between augmented storytelling and immersive practices | Young Adult and Children's Stories | Scoop.it
INA Global, the Revue of Creative Industries and Media...

 

The cultural industries, especially the audiovisual sectors (television and cinema, among others), have been going through deep changes related to the convergence of technologies, and with what Henry Jenkins calls “Convergence Culture”. These two movements have helped bring about the emergence of new production strategies: cross-media, transmedia storytelling (Henry Jenkins), deep media (Franck Rose), and media mix (Mizuko Ito) have gradually been making their appearance in the audiovisual landscape since the 1990s.

 

Behind these fashionable words are narrative and economic realities and a wish, on the part of the production industry, to put in place competitive creative strategies. For the audience, especially fans, there is a desire to immerse themselves in the discovery of storytelling worlds, just as there is a desire to hijack them and make them their own.

 

This article aims to scrutinize the phenomenon of transmedia storytelling in order to explain the mechanisms and the challenges for the cultural industries, in particular film and television. In the first instance, we will give a panorama of the definitions covered by the term. We will then look at how production strategies help bring about the creation of narrative worlds and of augmented storytelling. We will finish by explaining how alternate reality games (ARG) are examples – both immersive and hybrid – of transmedia creation....

How do you decide which apps to purchase? With limited time and budgets, many youth librarians are looking to app review sites and other sources to help them decide which apps are worth giving a try and possibly adding to professional or personal collections. It can be hard to narrow down the choices in various categories and decide which app is best. And as the industry continues to grow, we will continue to see new review sites popping up and others fading out. More and more, app recommendations and information are services that parents, students, and kids are looking to librarians to provide.
