My first transmedia documentary. Development | how I stopped worrying and learned to love the crisis

My first transmedia documentary. Development | how I stopped worrying and learned to love the crisis | Transmedia Projects | Scoop.it

Hey transmedia community, it's been a while. I've been busy for the past few months being a dad. I'm back to present you my latest endeavour. I've spent the past 4 years studying transmedia storytelling, and now I feel it's finally time to contribute with what I've learned to the community.

Back in August 2012, while I was still in film school, me and my partner had quite a huge surprise. We found out our family was gonna have an extra member. Since neither of us had finished college nor had a steady job, it came as a big shock. And to make things even more complicated, I had just been granted a full scholarship to study Multimedia Design in South Korea (to visit Korea was an old dream from my hard core gamer teen years). It was an all included deal, flights, housing, food, and extras, quite hard to come by.

I had to make one of my life's most difficult decisions: either stay in Brasil, get a job and probably not have enough time to be a transmedia creator, as I've always dreamed; or go to Korea, save up some cash but miss my baby daughter's first 6 months.

I kissed my darling good bye, packed my bags, and off I went, half way around the world.

It was a lonely, but at the same time very rewarding year. I left Brasil as a film-maker, and came back with the design and coding skills necessary to become an independent transmedia creator.

Not only that, I had the most incredible experiences of my life. Travelling has always been what fed my creativity to tell stories. And during the 5 months of break from Korean University, I had the most incredible journeys.

Like most of you I was born in a globalised society, where democracy isn't really democratic, and the economy has really nothing to do with... well anything to be realistic. But what choice do we have? Communism? This transmedia documentary is just about that. The alternatives that exist in the world, that most of us would judge to be utopian or absurd. I spent a few months with an isolated head-hunting tribe in the Philippines, and with them I learned what democracy and economy are really about. With this documentary I intend to tell my own personal experience of how a corporate trusting capitalist (myself), became a run-away punk inspired by the people of undeveloped nations and some good old anthropology, economic and media research.

Since I came back to Brasil I've been too busy finding a nice place for my family to settle down, but now I think we finally got it right. And for the first time since I'm back, I have 10 days just for myself. The girls went to visit grandma, a few thousand miles away, and I stayed back to finally work. So if you'de like to be part of this journey, please send in your comments and advices thru Scoop.it, Twitter, or in the shared Google Drive folder I posted. Your support, along side some cachaça, will be my fuel for this next week. I'll be posting more in the drive, so please be sure to check it out.

If you'de like to check more about me, please check my half-finished web page: http://luandro.com/en.html

Ps.: The place we found peace is in the middle of noware, so internet access is quite tricky, specially when it's rainy (like now). Sorry in advance for not being able to keep up in real-time. But whenever technology collaborates, I'll keep you posted.

Welcome To Sanditon - crowdsourcing an ending

“Welcome to Sanditon” is a new Web series from Pemberly Digital, the same creators behind “The Lizzie Bennet Diaries.” But where that series of YouTube videos (which ran for 100 episodes) simply retold and updated Austen’s “Pride and Prejudice,” this new series of webisodes will allow viewers to create their own characters to interact with Georgiana “Gigi” Darcy and the other cast members of the show.

Tom Hanks' "Electric City" ARG

Actor, producer Tom Hanks' futuristic, animated series "Electric City" premiered on July 17. Written by Hanks, the series is set in a city situated in a post-apocalyptic world, with socially conscious themes and topics including energy consumption.

 

To create buzz for the debut of the web only series, Yahoo! brought in San Francisco ad agency Pereira & O'Dell and Venice-based production company B-Reel to concept and developed the ARG and blog "Tap Joint" (http://www.tapjoint.com). 

 

The website is a first person view of someone in front of a "tap kit", a similar device to an old Morse code transmitter. Typing certain phrases will yield coded responses or break to a video clip where site visitors learn that the unidentified correspondent on the other end of the telegraph is a member of an underground movement committed to resisting their city's sentinel, the Allied Municipal Patrol. The resistance is hard at work assembling Wave Units—single-channel, one-way broadcasting devices in time for Illumination Day, an annual holiday taking place on March 9th. On this day, visitors who were able to break the code were given an exclusive preview of the show

The Cosmonaut - A transmedia experience

The Cosmonaut - A transmedia experience | Transmedia Projects | Scoop.it

The Cosmonaut is the story of Yulia, Stas and Andrei, three characters surrounded by events that happened over a fifteen-year period: successes and failures, accidents, conspiracies, favoritisms and secret missions. It’s the story of the Space Race… from the Soviet point of view. A love triangle seen from a very personal point of view with an innovative narrative due to it’s transmediatic approach. It was a leap of faith since we innovated so much, not only in the funding and distribution part, but also on the narrative part, breaking the story world in a lot of pieces (the 34 webisodes, the film, the book, the diaries of the cosmonaut, the facebook fiction).

Northwords - Interactive Documentary

The National Parks of northern Canada are too remote for most people to visit, but their majestic landscapes and stories are a great inspiration to artists. From Glenn Gould to the Group of Seven, the notion of the North as an idea and a muse has resonated through our cultural history. Northwords continues that tradition by inviting five noted Canadian authors to add their voices to the continuing story of the north.
