OK, I can just hear you now… What’s he doing? Seriously? And what is he up to now.?
What’s Transmedia Storytelling?
Think Star Wars.
You can watch the movie (one medium), read a comic book, (second medium) read a hard cover book (#3) watch cartoons of the same story (#4) read fan fiction (#5) listen to a podcast (6) and the list goes on… and on.
One story – different mediums.
I Heard About the Theory
So I took a course (as of this publication date, I’m still taking it)
So What Am I Doing On This Site?
I’m experimenting madly. Naturally. 🙂
You can see the beginning of my storytelling adventure right here
Click the various topics to open up stories, interesting links and more.
I’m at the very beginning of this and not sure how far to push it along. For example, I’m not sure about using video on this site. How “interesting” would it be to watch an author tell/read stories? (Not very interesting in my opinion but…)
I did just (June 7th) open up a podcast account to upload audio to this site and to your podcast app.
So you’ll be able to read and listen to the stories and posts as soon as I get that sorted out.
Understand It’s An Experiment
And as with any experiment, there will be some good points and not-so-good points.
And I’ll look forward to hearing from you about which is which.
