  • 3. Transmedia Playbook TM How to use this Playbook Use this playbook when you’re stuck for ideas. If you want to do something fun but don’t know where to start or if the client puts you on a deadline to propose an experience, use this book as quick reference guide. This book will stimulate ideas and provide structure to your thinking. Each example story has three sections: • Platforms – how this particular example is delivered • Format – the participation tropes and experience characteristics • Story – an example of how the format might be used • Building blocks – the steps used to create the experience. Note that the building blocks relate specifically to implementation in Conducttr but could be used to implement in some other way if you prefer not to use the convenience of Conducttr. To make it even easier, we’ve created template projects for most of the stories here so you can create a new, original project and speed up the implementation by working from one of those public templates. How you can help If you like this playbook and find it helpful, you can help the community of transmedia storytellers by sharing it widely and by sending us your examples for possible inclusion in the next release of this book. If your work is included in the next playbook, we will of course credit you accordingly! Finally, if you’re a Conducttr author, remember that you can even create your own templates too. Introduction The purpose of this book is to stimulate ideas and inspiration. It’s a small catalogue of participatory transmedia storytelling experiences intended to remind, suggest, provoke and inspire creators. What is Transmedia Storytelling? Transmedia storytelling is telling a story across multiple platforms, preferably allowing audience participation, such that each successive platform heightens the audience’ enjoyment. Note the use of “platform” instead of “media”. Video is a media while YouTube is a platform. Text is another media but the platform could be SMS, a book, a blog and so on. With this stricter definition, a multimedia website does not represent transmedia storytelling unless it’s part of some larger, multi-platform experience. Not all multi-platform projects are examples of transmedia storytelling and usually it’s because the same content has been repurposed rather than each platform delivering unique content. What’s a Format? We’ve defined format to mean a combination of experience characteristics and frequently used participation mechanisms (which we’ve called participation tropes). Our definition of transmedia storytelling encompasses many types of projects. It can therefore be useful to think in terms of how the audience experience is shaped such as the use of time, the use of place, whether the experience is intended to be enjoyed alone or with others and so on. Working with these experience characteristics we start to create a format – a certain classification of experience defined by the relationship between the creator and the audience. In addition to the characteristics, we see commonly used mechanisms or ways of interacting with an audience such as a treasure hunt or voting and we refer to these as participation tropes. For example, if you build a twitter experience in which the audience has to make a decision by voting, the experience characteristics would be Scheduled, because you open and close the voting process at a certain period of time and Multiplayer because the audience will work together and vote as a community. In this case, our participation tropes is You Decide which we have created to describe a branching narrative that depends on a community decision.
