Future of Storytelling - 158 early adopters request formats for the future

1. How are audiences’ expectations around storytelling evolving as media experiences become more multiplatform, more customizable, and more participatory?
2. How can content creators and technologists make stories come alive, by allowing audiences to delve deeper into them or by bringing them out into the real world?
3. What are some best practices and new opportunities for the future of storytelling?

 

"Latitude conducted in-depth interviews with pioneers in the media space to discuss specific challenges and innovations, followed by an online survey1 amongst 158 early adopters focused on generating new possibilities for interacting with stories. Participants were asked to play the role of producer, choosing a narrative (a book, movie, plot-driven video game, etc.) that they know well, and re-inventing the way that audiences might experience that story. Some of the ideas that participants suggested are possible today, even if they don’t exist yet—while others require technologies that are still several years coming."

It is a lot more than media-shifting. Transmedia Storytelling Emerges

It is a lot more than media-shifting. Transmedia Storytelling Emerges | Young Adult and Children's Stories | Scoop.it
Content - As various technology platforms (e.g., social media, apps, tablets, smartphones, and TV) evolve to become more integrated with one another, more customizable, and more participatory, so are people's expectations around ...

"So far, one of the biggest insights for us is that the emergence of new technologies means there's a largely untapped opportunity to allow people to tie stories directly into their own lives—bringing narratives 'out of the screen,' so to speak, often through meaningful connections with characters," said Neela Sakaria, EVP and managing director at Latitude.

"We've distilled our findings down into a few key principles, and our hope is that content creators begin to embrace the idea that the desire for interesting cross-platform experiences isn't as niche as some might think."

"Innovative storytelling isn't just for fantasy fiction, and there are exciting new opportunities for news creators and even retailers to use storytelling principles to engage people more deeply," said Sakaria.

About the data: Study participants were age 12-65, 60% male and 40% female, residing in the US (78%) and elsewhere, including Australia, Germany, Japan, Singapore, Turkey, and the UK. More than three-quarters owned and regularly used a smartphone, and 50% were tablet owners (44% owned both).

The Hunger - An Immersive Theatre Experience - The Arts Scene

The Hunger - An Immersive Theatre Experience - The Arts Scene | Young Adult and Children's Stories | Scoop.it

The story of Hansel and Gretel is one that we all have heard at somepoint in our lives. This iconic fairy-tale of german origin was first published in 1812 and has been read to children for decades. Two siblings, who find themselves far from home, out wit a cannibalistic witch who lures them into her home with sweets & dreams. Its very simple to summarize this epic tale having heard it many times. However; what if this story was looked at from a different perspective? From a deeper, more mature, more thought-provoking perspective?

 

The Hunger is a project by Uncanny House, a collective of artists, and is directed by Margaret Krawecka & choreographed by Malgorzata Nowacka. It is an adaptation of Hansel & Gretel into a unique theatrical experience. It uses one key element of the original story – the act of luring – as a means to discuss a common topic of the modern day: mass consumption. It wishes to explore – with the help of video projections, sound & movement – the overwhelming affects that the media has to make us consume more and more what seems to be an infinite choice of things.The original story wasn’t soft & cuddly. The talk of cannibalism & burning alive a witch are all mature themes. The Hunger taps into the mature theme of the original, tying in the political discussion of mass consumption...

Turnstyle » BEST OF: The Emerging World of Transmedia

Turnstyle » BEST OF: The Emerging World of Transmedia | Young Adult and Children's Stories | Scoop.it

POSTED BY NOAH J NELSON ON JULY 2, 2012

 

We’re taking a little well earned R&R this week, but we’re still thinking about you, loyal reader. So we’ve gathered some of our favorite posts from the past year into these handy-dandy Best of Turnstyle News pages. One for every day this week.

 

Transmedia. A word both loved and loathed by Hollywood executives and Madison Avenue marketers. The art and science, if you will, of making all our disparate media technologies work together to articulate an over-arching vision. Well, when it’s done right at any rate.

 

What excites us most about transmedia here at Turnstyle is that it is a new frontier. A still uncharted territory that is constantly evolving in practice, content and theory. Even the definition is constantly morphing. Yet that is probably the least interesting thing about transmedia. It’s the work and the people who are doing it that are the most exciting. Here’s some of the highlights from the year so far:

 

New Media Breaks Through: Fourth Wall Studio Launches RIDES– The Culver City based Fourth Wall Studios is on the cutting edge of transmedia. This report, which was turned into a Marketplace piece, peeks behind the curtain of the studio to show how the creators of the Alternate Reality Game genre are looking to use their storytelling mojo to reach a broader audience...

What a Marvellous, Brave Post. Stories We Tell: A post by Sarah Polley | NFB.ca blog | Young Adult and Children's Stories | Scoop.it
Conversations about documentary, animation and film culture...

 

Today in Venice my latest film, Stories We Tell, will be screening for the first time. Until now, thanks to the extraordinary decency of many people – including some journalists who have known the story for years and kept it secret – I have been able to keep its contents under wraps.

 

Knowing that people will now write about the film itself as well as the story it is based on, I’d like to explain a bit of the process that lead to the making of the film and why I’d like the film to speak for itself. I realize that I’m not nearly accomplished enough to write this kind of blog without apology. The world is not waiting for my next film! But because I am hoping to not do any press or interviews about the film for its festival life, I do feel I owe an explanation to the journalists who have helped me keep this secret and been respectful of my process for some time....
