Join us in Lausanne and meet and make friends with international transmedia and digital culture powerbrokers! WHAT IS TRANSMEDIA? Transmedia is “the vanguard process of conveying messages, themes or storylines to a mass audience through the artful and well-planned use of multiple media platforms and brand extension that creates intense audience loyalty and long-term engagement, enriches the value of creative content and generates multiple revenue streams.” (Jeff Gomez, 2013) The platforms used by transmedia projects can include: tv, film, books, comics, alternate reality games, video games, real-life events and performances, websites, apps, augmented reality, social media, location based services, computer game mechanics, music, toys and more. Transmedia techniques are used in fields as diverse as television, film, marketing, advertising and public relations, corporate and brand narratives, and in education, activism and geo-political implementations. Put simply – transmedia is the hottest topic in the digital culture, screen, media and entertainment industries right now – and you need to be across it. 16 of the world’s leading transmedia and digital culture experts converge in Lausanne for X Media Lab Switzerland “Transmedia”.
