Smith “(James Cameron) gets a lot of points for being a techno-brat, but he is a very emotional storyteller.”Steven Speilberg “James Cameron has made the two biggest movies ever made, and say what you will about his dialogue or his characterizations, but every single one of his movies obviously have resonated with a HUGE audience across the world. They all back up the eye-melting spectacle on display with an emotional story, and that is absolutely no accident.”Nate Newton “Cameron has long claimed that Titanic was at its core a love story.

Every Platform Tells a Story: Transmedia has the power to make any topic more vivid and personal

Barrow Elementary in Athens, GA, was asked to help create a set of interdisciplinary lessons for fifth graders to learn about September 11, 2001, he naturally took a transmedia approach. Plemmons remembers turning to TV, radio, and the Web to try to find out what was going on that day. Later, he sought magazines and newspapers, and eventually history books as he tried to process the magnitude—and meaning—of the worst terrorist attacks on American soil. When it came to teaching his young students, some of whom weren’t even born at the time of the tragedy, Plemmons knew the impact of 9/11 couldn’t be captured by a single account—or even a single medium.

They read how children and others experienced that painful day, and, at key points along the way, they contributed their own writings and drawings to create a complete story about the events, Plemmons explains.

Teaching Transmedia with Comics: A Conversation with Tyler Weaver. {*style:<b> </b>*} When I first heard about Tyler Weaver’s book that places comics squarely at the center of transmedia, I thought it was too good to be true (I’ve long argued for giving comics a more central role in all discussions of media). Then I got the book and found out it was even better than that. Making connections across multiple forms of pop culture–like this blog, only more authoritatively–Weaver has produced a work that I strongly believe should be in all secondary schools and certainly all libraries. As a reference work on media/transmedia both aesthetically and historically, as a how-to for student media-makers, or simply on the professional development shelf, so that teachers and librarians can mine it for ideas, it’s a text that can fill many needs at once.

6 lessons on how to produce a transmedia experience

In most cases, projects require the collaboration of people with very different skill sets and specific expertise. Sometimes, those people also don’t come from the same background and are not necessarily used to collaborate with each other. As a result, the producer of such projects is left with the task of having to orchestrate very complex projects and hybrid teams – more than any other kind of media project. This is why in 2010, the Producer’s Guild of America decided to coin a new job title: the “Transmedia Producer.” This decision had a major impact in that it heavily contributed to the establishement of the term as an industry standard.

How to Analyze Transmedia Narratives? par Renira Gambarato sur Prezi. World Bibles and World Wikis. This is the third in a series of posts regarding shared story world design "globe detail" by Patrick Q (CC BY-NC 2.0) The concept of a world bible is a tried and true practice in many creative areas, especially for serial storytelling like television or large entertainment franchises.

World Bibles and World Wikis

A world bible is an internal document or system for cataloging characters, places, items, etc. for future reference. World bibles help keep some of the minor details in place (e.g., ages and birthplaces of characters) while helping eliminate continuity issues (“Wait, John was living in Washington on his 21st birthday as established in the novel, “First Place.” This fan-written short story has his girlfriend surprising him on his 21st birthday while he was serving abroad in the Peace Corps!”).

What makes the perfect Transmedia Producer?…

Now that transmedia is everywhere and the Producers Guild of America have turned the ‘transmedia producer’ into a bona fide (or at least recognised) professional role one thing that rears it’s cross-media head is, who and where are the best transmedia producers going to come from? I have spent a good part of the last 15 years mentoring & training traditional & non-traditional media types in multiple platform content and now question where the best producers of this multifaceted ‘new’ content will come from – academia, film, book authors, social media consultants, game designers, TV, web developers, radio, advertisers, young, old, not yet born?

Have about 22 draft posts sitting in my WordPress Post box, so a bit of catch-up in next week or two to clear some out! Outside of the talk of what ‘transmedia’ actually is, the next key topic of controversy is how can you make money from it vs spending marketing money ‘on it’ to promote a traditional product/project. The Holy Grail at the moment is can we make the ‘multi platform, transmedia form’ an entertainment or service necessity – something worth users putting hands in pockets for (or clicking that PayPal button) and something worth spending the time and effort immersing yourself in – when there are so many other ‘linear’ fragments to graze on?

Transmedia Project Reference Guide (bible) A Manifesto for Media Education. Educators need to utilise digital writing. About 18 months ago, I began getting a number of Google Alerts about Inanimate Alice, a digital fiction project which uses multi-media to tell a story through sound, image, text and video. Each episode is a self-contained adventure and the story becomes increasingly game-like as it progresses.

The alerts were drawing my attention to the publication online of episode five. And not just one episode five but several versions. Which was interesting. Because I am the author of Inanimate Alice and I'd only produced four episodes. In fact, a teacher in the US had been using the stories with her "hard to reach" class of teenagers who had created their own batch of multimedia episodes and uploaded them to the internet. For me it was a really big moment: to have these students taking a piece of writing by someone else and engaging with it in an entirely new way is a very exciting form of interactivity. I think that stories are a really useful teaching tool, regardless of the subject matter. Spécial transmédia – ressources et hyperliens. Developing a transmedia game at a history museum.
