Mike Jones says: "In a multiplatform world a Writer cannot be defined by a Medium". I also agree with his comments that in order to write, you have to be able to talk!


Those who write for Young Adults should find this of interest.

Mike Jones:  "Long-standing tenets of narrative still hold, but if we’re going to live and work in a multiplatform world - where audiences are spread across many narrative forms, not conglomerated together around a dominant - then Writers may need to rethink their processes and even the definition of what they are and what they do..."

James Coombes's curator insight, March 24, 2015 12:08 PM

"Technology has never changed what a Story is or what audiences expect of it. The commonality of Story between a stageplay, a novel, a film and a video game is much stronger than anything technology can throw at it."

Mike Vogel:  "Here’s a dilemma every transmedia producer faces… You discover a new storytelling platform–maybe you get in to their invite-only beta–and you create a story that uses the strengths of that platform. The platform gives you a powerful new way to express yourself interactively, but then something happens. Maybe the startup runs out of funding, gets acquired, or changes their business model. Suddenly the DNA of your story is no longer available to you. Your story can no longer be told."

Simon Staffans:  "A couple of years ago I wrote a post on transmedia, examining a comparison that Jeff Gomez often sports; the one of likening transmedia to a symphony orchester, where you have a great number of different instruments – or media platforms – that need to be conducted in precisely the right way in order for them to create the harmonies that will make people sit up, take notice and flock to the content."

Yes, please explain, Mr. Pratten

Brad Tollefson's curator insight, July 9, 2015 12:38 AM

The three Cs are:

Characters – the importance of storyConvenience – the importance of getting the right content to the right people at the right timeCommunity – the importance of connecting fans and rewarding them.

At the intersections we see the actions and functions we must support:

Characters+Convenience – the personalization of the story experience for each person based on their relationship to the worldConvenience+Community – the continued “personalization” but in a broader sense as applied to audience segments. For example an audience team collaborates to unlock content that only they can see. Also at this intersection is the ability to share content and refer friends to the worldCommunity+Characters – this is the relationship between the community and the world. Creators should provide opportunities to strengthen the relationship through procedures and technology to allow fan contributions, character interactions and such like.

LucaVanin - It can have the same connotation of untruth in the west; just depends on context (and who's paying!) In Entertainment, of course, no one worries about superficial truth. Even (especially?) in Reality TV. What matters is the universal truth that stories can deliver. That is the real litmus test of truth.

Seven Myths About Transmedia Storytelling Debunked | Fast Company

Seven Myths About Transmedia Storytelling Debunked | Fast Company | Young Adult and Children's Stories | Scoop.it

Henry Jenkins-Over the past few years, transmedia storytelling has become a hot buzzword in Hollywood and Madison Avenue alike--"the next big thing" or "the last big thing" depending on whom you ask.

 

Transmedia storytelling is cool.  But what is it really?  As the articles I've curated by Mike Jones say, there's a lot of hype out there about transmedia storytelling and we need voices to bring clarity to all the hoopla.  This article also helps us cut through all the noise to get at what's happening with storytelling as it spreads across different media.

 

Why do I like transmedia storytelling?  Because it allows storytellers to share backstories and stories from different points of view in ways that can be simultaneous. That's fun!

 

This article again brings a lot of clarity to people interested in transmedia storytelling. What has this got to do with business?  Well, even small business can start sharing different aspects of their core stories in different media in various marketing channels.  It's the wave of the future, so let's get our creative juices flowing and start figuring this out now.
