Transmedia Survey

I’m giving a talk next month at ICIDS about transmedia storytelling, including some of the reasons why its been difficult to form consensus around what the term means. And I thought it would be fun to assemble some specific reactions to the term. 

So if you have a few moments, please fill out this (short) survey all about the T-word.  


Hey, look! It’s another Transmedia debate!

Sometime yesterday, my feed starting being deluged with links to essays about transmedia. “Wow! Is it 2009 again?,” I thought. Nope, but it turns out that Immerse picked up a blog post Andrea wrote last month and then asked a few people to write their responses.  I haven’t seen so many people discussing their own definitions of transmedia since before we lost Brian Clark

Check out smart people being smart about transmedia:

Part #2 of Who says pictures can’t be giffed, huh? 😉

Given that I’ve been getting some awesome feedback on the Episode 101: Postscript gif set I made, I’ve decided to gif another iconic transmedia moment in the Lizzie Bennet Diaries – the San Francisco tour. The times used were the ones I found on the respective Twitter accounts.

OMG this happened 2 years ago. One of my favourite experiences ever in the world of webseries. So glad to have experienced it “live”.
