Transmedia in 2015

I’ve been eagerly studying, creating, curating and producing in the transmedia vein for the past few years, ever since the cross-media me saw the light of transmedia storytelling in a conference room in Cardiff in the summer of 2010. I’ve taken part of all the different discussions on what transmedia really is and what it’s…Read more Transmedia in 2015

Transmedia – global and personal

A little less than a week ago I published the annual-wrap-up and looking-ahead-to-next-year publication "One Year In Now Media Vol IV".

First, a full disclaimer. I’m writing this post not so much for you, dear reader, as I’m doing it for myself. Let me explain. As I’m increasingly working with people who have no or little experience of transmedia (or even cross media or any of the theories or practices behind multiplatform storytelling), I find myself…Read more Taking The First Steps in Transmedia

MIPJunior, MIPCOM and Transmedia Living Lab – a travel log

I’ve spent some time traveling around Europe the past couple of weeks, attending first the bustling MIPJunior and MIPCOM on the Croisette in Cannes, then swiftly flying over to Madrid to speak at Fundacion Telefonica’s event Transmedia Living Lab.

Possibly impossible – the challenging art of looking past what is possible to what is probable

Bringing convergence to the people

I’ve pitched enough ideas and projects and tenders to enough possible buyers and collaborators and clients to know that one of the most important things to do is to NOT confuse them. As one of the hardest working sellers I know use to say – selling IP to someone as reluctant as your average media…Read more Bringing convergence to the people

Story propagation – what creators can learn from marketing

I’m a great believer in learning from trades other than your own. Never has this been more important than now, when a content creator would need to be a great storyteller to have a story to gather an audience around, a good programmer to be able to augment the story with tech that enhances the…Read more Story propagation – what creators can learn from marketing

The art of limiting

File this brief post under ”basic things that are really good to keep in mind at all times”. When it comes to cross media creation and transmedia storytelling development, the sky is the limit. You could make a good case for almost any media platform to be included. You could develop strategies for all existing…Read more The art of limiting
