  11. 11. Enter Transmedia Storytelling
  12. 12. What is Transmedia? The practice of arching story worlds over various platforms, with each thread tailored to the platform it lives in Extends elements of a primary storyline across multiple spaces to create an interactive, multi-layered fiction greater than the sum of its parts Not about repurposing content from TV to another platform It is about appropriately and organically telling a story across multiple platforms where elements of a story are dispersed systematically, each making their own contribution to the whole storyhttp://dominic1978.com/blog/transmedia-storytelling-visualize/

  16. 16. Transmedia allows brands a larger canvas in which to tell their stories By helping them leverage the best features in each platform to enhance every piece of the experience; giving diversity and richness to the content and characters and helping users get the most out of a great story. http://www.tstoryteller.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/08/franchise-transmedia1.png
  17. 17. Transmedia stories can be built around a brand community that rallies fans around the brand or product story Audi Art Of The Heist AT&T Presents Daybreakhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z5w2CNB9clw http://www.daybreak2012.com/ Audi and AT&T have created Transmedia Alternate Reality Games that activate audiences and creates deeper engagement through participation and co-creation
  18. 18. Transmedia storytelling has also found a niche inHollywood as a means to launch huge blockbuster movies The Dark Knight: Why So Serious Prometheus: Peter Weyland TED Talk 2013 http://vimeo.com/6303664#at=0 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lpYUW0ekPSA
  19. 19. Developing Transmedia Campaigns1. Focus On Telling A Good Story Make sure it is engaging and interactive and allows for audience participation in helping to shape the story Make sure every piece of content can be easily shared
  20. 20. Developing Transmedia Campaigns2. Think About How You Want To Distribute The Story Look at the brand’s owned, earned, shared, and paid media. Based on the media type and time form, think about how you want each platform to participate. For example, the use of blogs to get a more in-depth exploration of the character’s thoughts or a backstory. Twitter allows for real-time updates on what’s going on right now and can be used to report an event, provide reactions, stream conversations between characters, etc. Facebook can act as the central hub and be a permanent record for content and conversations. Other pieces of content can also be distributed on YouTube, LinkedIn, etc.

  22. 22. Developing Transmedia Campaigns3. Make Each Piece And Narrative Easy To Find Make each piece and narrative easy to find relative to the main plot and anchor story Ensure there is a balance of the linear and non-linear experience so that the audience does not get lost or confused Reference project guide: http://www.zenfilms.com/blog/project%20reference %20guide%20%28Bible%29.docx To explore creating an Alternate Reality Game as part of the story, use this reference game scenario: http://www.slideshare.net/dorianrichard/asek-core-arg
