Connecting: arts audiences online » Blog Archive » Location-based Experiences | Transmedia 4 Kids: Creating Content For Children | Scoop.it
Location-based Experience’ is a fairly loose term that encompasses a whole range of different media forms, whose “digital content adapts to users’ locations as they move through the physical world”. In this sense it it similar to Augmented Reality, as it draws heavily upon the idea that user experience is locative and can be targeted, conformed and enhanced through the ‘personalisation’ of media delivered to that location. However, it has a more general remit, and AR may be seen as a subset of locative experiences.

The Arc of Storytelling : Bobette Buster

In our culture, he who tells the best story wins. Creating great narratives that produce epiphanies involves a particular talent that applies far beyond film and changes the way you write books, marketing copy, funding proposals, research reports, sermons, and so much more. Bobette Buster has built and sustained a long, respected career in the film industry by being the best at finding and developing epiphanies in some of the greatest movies we've all enjoyed.

Connecting: arts audiences online » Blog Archive » Transmedia for Event-based Arts | Transmedia 4 Kids: Creating Content For Children | Scoop.it
If we assume a definition of transmedia involves creating projects that accumulate meaning across distinct media and artforms (see previous article), then event-based arts involve extending the experience beyond the event. Most arts projects – such as performances, installations, and exhibitions – are event-based. So when I consult on these types of projects, we usually work out a plan according to three stages of the audience/user experience: before, during and after the event. This article discusses things to consider when taking this time-based approach to transmedia strategy.

One description of transmedia is to continue a story across media platforms. But if you don’t see yourself working with “stories” or “media platforms”, then you may think it doesn’t apply to you. Transmedia is actually the most recent term to describe a phenomenon that has been emerging in the boardrooms of Hollywood and the forests of Sweden. It has emerged in film, TV, gaming, new media, installations, performance, literature, music, and beyond. So, what is this phenomenon?
