Transmedia the way forward for social distance art forms!

Staying in has been the new going out for a long time now, so instead of "being out in the field" I've concentrated more on social distance projects that were previously on a back burner.

Hey, Debbie! You may have to walk me through this - I see "Transmedia 1940's" but I'm not sure what's going here. What Transmedia art form have you been focusing on?

Hi it’s a sample from look book of upcoming novella, film, interactive website (separate adult/child content,) comic, fantasy, blog, podcast. Started original after Transmedia London Film School a few years ago and during lockdown had more time to devote cos my forcibly cancelled work is NON social distance. Recent Houston Howard zooms took me to this further level of “Ghost Fantasy”. Originally my idea was only Vintage Noir but Transmedia is undergoing an even greater Alinea shift. Different stories of characters/theme on multiple platforms is slowly trending to be also told in different genres. HH QUOTE “Make your story really stinking big.” Yeah sorry thread photo may seem a tad ambiguous if don’t know whats in my head, thanks for pointing it out @Karen.

PS Let me know of any outstanding questions @Karen. I studied this topic in depth at a couple of film schools and later zoom only with HH (cos of The Mundane Apocalypse.) I hope to meet HH in person later on this year but not made a definite date yet cos every time I made arrangements to go USA it was cancelled, the latest reason being third lockdown. I could talk for hours about Transmedia but will try to keep it short, think of any project as a Russian doll, grow shoots off main story for minor characters. In my upcoming Transmedia, I've done "mini story spin offs" from the main original idea. Being "Vintage" I keep props and clothes as original as possible, including taking photos from museums, having hand made patterns cut and then costumes hand sewn. The hard boiled cop was a body double in original Matrix. Ha ha can't afford KR.
