Great Content Makes for Effective Storytelling

I think that we can all agree that the quality of your content has a huge impact on your audience. Story is the priority, but if your delivery platform is lacking, it’s going to interfere with effectively connecting with the people you’re trying to reach. I just wanted to take a minute to recommend...

It seems pretty cool, and for those looking for ongo...

Agree, James. It's an interesting platform. Built with all the right intentions.

It's fantastic what Joseph Gorden-Levitt has created here.

I've been a hit recorder for a few years now. It's actually what helped me get back into writing after I'd given it up for a few years. When you're writing a script it can be difficult because you go...

The Three Little Pigs as a Transmedia Project

The Three Little Pigs is still the simplest example of how transmedia works. An story can become a transmedia project with just a little creativity and imagination. http://transmedia-talk.blogspot.ca/2016/04/the-three-little-pigs.html...

Very helpful post, Debbie. I get emails all the time with people asking about transmedia. This should offer many some clear insights.

Thanks, RB. :)

Storycode- Enhancing our ability to collaborate and create.

As I’ve mentioned before, we often think of transmedia storytelling as a fairly new concept, but the reality is that we’ve been using a variety of available platforms for branding and story for a very long time… it’s the advent of social media and the proliferation of communicative avenues through w...

Hey 32-ers, taking up the man's challenge in posting content daily for the month of April. I'll be in various lounges, but predominantly in the screenwriting one. Here we go. Transmedia.

Glad it was a decent enough read / suggestion, James. Definitely get in touch with Rob or follow him. The graphic novel cries out for transmedia assistance.

T is for Transmedia

What I found particularly compelling about this report is it targets transmedia use between the ages of 5-11, and that it assert: Transmedia isn't really a new concept (it really isn't), but how we're THINKING about it is new and compelling. http://www.annenberglab.com/projects/t-transmedia Thoughts...

Twitter Amplifies Voices and Brings People Together

When it's used right, Twitter can be a Transmedia Producer's best friend. With the right hashtag, the right conversation, you can attract a little milkshake to the yard. Twitter is a community of people more than a "social media" platform. http://transmedia-talk.blogspot.ca/2016/03/twitter-amplifies...

If Big Media wants to thrive in the digital era, it needs to remember its past and move beyond its present.

Every few decades, the media industry experiences a generational shift in infrastructure. We’re in the midst of one right now – only there’s a key difference: this shift isn’t about physical transmission assets or distribution bandwidth, it’s about attention. Thanks to Krishna Stott of Bellyfeel for...

Big Media is failing, as the spread of attention is already a massive problem for creatives to monetize their work, and for so many platforms to survive to maturity. Time will tell... very soon.

I had thought of similar ideas for my own project (and am actually using some of them at the moment), so it's great to see how it could be applied to a work like this.
