Tell me a story: augmented reality technology in museums. The Night at the Museum is a children's picture book by Milan Trenc – later, a Hollywood blockbuster – that told the story of a New York museum nightwatchman discovering, to his horror, that at night the building's exhibits came to life.

Tell me a story: augmented reality technology in museums

The basic premise of the story, however far-fetched, is that this dusty museum suddenly became even more interesting if the exhibits were telling their own story, although it did still involve being chased by a Tyrannosaurus Rex. Museums around the world today face the challenge of increasing and maintaining visitor numbers, especially with younger audiences. A fall in visitors is seen by most as a negative outcome, both financially and in terms of wider social and educational impact. Technology and The Evolution of Storytelling — ART & SCIENCE.

It is such an exciting time to be a filmmaker.

Technology and The Evolution of Storytelling — ART & SCIENCE

I do not believe the notion that the cinema is dying or dead because it’s amazing what technology can do to the cinematic storytelling. What’s great about film is it constantly reinvents itself. It started as a sheer novelty, those images moving on the screen.

The Future of the Past. Visiting Belgium to talk at Leuven last month, I managed to fall (on a piece of water melon!)

The Future of the Past

And broke my leg very badly, so I'm going to be laid up until the beginning of June. I'm trying to get myself geared up to working remotely, but it is amazing how long everyday things take on crutches. Among the many exciting events I will miss as a result of my accident was a round table organised last night (20 March 2012) at the Institute of Historical Research on ''The Future of the Past'.

Other participants in the round table were Melissa Terras from UCL, Adam Farquahar from the British Library and (kindly standing in for me at very short notice) Torsten Reimer from JISC. Lorna Hughes from the University of Wales also acted as respondent. I sent along the piece I might have contributed, which Tim Hitchcock read out much more impressively than I could have managed. 2012.

Intro from Jay Allison: Brian Storm - the founder and executive producer of the innovative, multimedia production studio MediaStorm - talks about "quality" on the web as the main driver of traffic (besides gossip or sensationalism, or being really funny).

Brian Storm

In an attempt to diagnose the elements of quality, he's prepared a fascinating Transom Manifesto, comparing three versions of the same story about a New York City Seltzer Man - one for radio, one for TV, and one by MediaStorm. He takes the time to disassemble the stories and break down the beats. This is a great multimedia storytelling exercise, highly recommended.

Likewise traditional storytelling. Human beings have been telling stories around campfires since the first cavewoman struck a flint against another flint and noticed that an interesting spark flew off. Stories aren't going anywhere and nor is the visceral, inexplicable, bone-deep shivery delight of a good tale well told. What happens, however, is that new technologies give creative people new ideas. Art and science (or technology) are often imagined to be totally separate – but this is not, and never has been, true. This is where we are now with storytelling: interesting developments are happening. I write serious literary novels – and I write videogames.
