Transmedia

The place to discuss, share content and offer tips and advice to transmedia – the technique of telling a single story or story across multiple platforms including, but not limited to, games, books, events, films and television

So would Losttime comics be consider as Transmedia?

We are telling a stories though video games comicbooks and cartoon and movies...or want to..lol.

Joseph L. Stewart

Yes. I would think so. It seems to be transferrable across the board, and it transcends all genres. Excellent choice of your work to represent this question, btw. :)

A great example of Transmedia Cross Platform story telling was Dark Knight 2008. (Before the film even came out). Not only comics, internet and gaming outlets ....but massive public interactive live p...

Hi Joel - Is there a Facebook page for that group? I'd love to join and/or be on the mailing list, please. I am a native Houstonian based in Los Angeles, but I get back as often as I can and at least during the Christmas holidays every year. Thanks!

Great! More people working!

Radio show content

I've always enjoyed Old Time Radio and I'm building a sound room/recording studio at home. I'm curious if there is any interest in this medium ?

I love old time radio horror shows! The witches tale, the hermits cave, lights out! All of them there's so many! I think they could be a hit again! I would love to try to put an original "old time horror" podcast out there! Other than a script I wouldn't know where to start though.

Debbie Elicksen

A beautiful setting for a podcast.

Eric Gilmartin

Your next move, after recording some material, would be to make that available online. Audio dramas are making a comeback - "Wolf 359", "Limetown" and "Night Vale" are just a few examples of fiction-based pod-casts. Good luck with your new studio!

G.R. Barnett

I thought about doing one for the western I was planning on writing.

Adapting the Screenplay to either Novel or Graphic Novel?

I have two screenplays that I've finished, and I've read an article on "Scriptmags" about adapting your screenplay into an IP (Intellectual Property), in order to increase your chances for a sale. And I've read it somewhere in David Troitter's "Screenwriting Bible", about doing Transmedia and adapti...

How to Pitch a MOW

Hi, all. I pitched a series that does not look like it's going to get picked-up the way I had envisioned it. Instead, I reworked what I had into a screenplay but, since it is based on a TV series, I want to be able to stress that in a pitch session. This is not a pilot (although it could be reworked...

Is this that Dr. Who movie to be made up of scenes filmed by various folk around the country? About a year ago, a group of scatter brains tried to convince me to get involved.

Buying Youtube Subscribers?

I get a ton of spam about offers to sell YouTube Likes, subs, views, etc. for my YouTube channel.
I'm wondering if anyone out there has done this and what their experience has been with it?
Did it work? Did you get scammed? Just curious about peoples' experiences.

K.M. Ecke

Yeah Richard Thrift you're probably right. It's tough though because people want to see subscribers to believe something is worth spending time on in the first place. I think we're all a little shallo...

Case Study: The Guild.

Why was this series successful and others have fallen flat? I put the credit squarely on the writing and character development. What are your thoughts? Also, the "confessional," cuts allows the story to read both as individual episodes or each season as a movie. Dr Horrible's Sing Along Blog shared this motif to great effect.

One of the best resources for transmedia examples

If you haven't been to the UK Bellyfeel site, check out some of the case studies and really great examples of how you can use transmedia for a project.
