Transmedia Podcast – Untitled Murder Project

robert | October 29, 2013  ‐  No Comments

murderprojectA very interesting interactive video/webseries project from Alonso Mayo. Not transmedia but an interesting look at alternative story structures.

What drew my attention was the story structure and the navigation system – it’s very engaging and allows the audience to explore the story and character threads as their interest takes them.

Transmedia en Latinoamérica

Belen Santa-Olalla | October 23, 2013  ‐  No Comments

El fenómeno de la comunicación transmedia se expande con ganas por territorios hispanohablantes. Especialmente en Latinoamérica este tipo de narrativas participativas empiezan a resonar con bastante fuerza, ya que el carácter social de su gente hace posible que los universos narrativos sean habitados y enriquecidos por una gran multitud de participantes. En esta entrevista en Iberoamérica Televisión en el programa Confirmado, estuvimos charlando del concepto de transmedia, sus caracteristicas, su difusión y hacia dónde se encamina.

Moving the audience from moment to moment

robert | October 19, 2013  ‐  No Comments

Transmedia storytelling is taking the audience on an emotional journey that goes from moment to moment.

Our lives are a continuous stream of time & events. What the storyteller tries to do is join that stream and create a moment: a special event that means something. This special event stands out from all the other events because it delights, it enthralls… it engages and this is a moment.

When we approach the design of our experiences in this way it leads to an alternative way of drawing the “user journey”. Rather than presenting rows of platforms and zigzagging lines representing the audience crossing between platforms, we start with rows of audience types – keeping the audience constant and showing the platforms they encounter on their journey.  The connecting lines now show how the platforms connect to each other to create an integrated experience.

The diagram below is a partial screen shot from Conducttr to illustrate the point. In this project, parents and children are working collaboratively and you can see the middle row are the shared moments.
