Ricky Gervais is a walking, talking transmedia project when he morphs into David Brent. http://transmedia-talk.blogspot.ca/2016/11/ricky-gervais-character-david......

It all started back at The Office. David Brent was always that character who is accidentally offensive, even though he's trying so hard to be politically correct. Brent is no longer the manager, but n…

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!

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

Thanks for posting! Transmedia is very exciting. A chance to encapsulate additional depth marketing and audience to projects is very tempting. It does mean we'll need to expand our use of staff and freelancers so we are looking for it to be profitable and just not trendy.

James Grant Goldin

Very interesting -- although I'm not sure # 5 is always the case. The Disney, DC and Marvel universes, for example, are currently being shepherded onto various platforms by a handful of people, but th...
