The Evolution of Transmedia Storytelling

What’s transmedia storytelling?  In transmedia storytelling, content becomes invasive and fully permeates the audience's lifestyle.  A transmedia project develops storytelling across multiple forms of media in order to have different "entry points" in the story; entry-points with a unique and independent lifespan but with a definite role in the big narrative scheme. Each distinct element makes distinctive contributions to a fan's understanding of the story world; "entry-points" through which consumers can become immersed in a story world. 

The three video’s below are from a recent discussion between Frank Rose, author of "The Art of Immersion" (and a contributing Editor at Wired) and Jeff Gomez, President and CEO of Starlight Runner Entertainment at Ad Age's "Creativity and Technology" (CaT) Conference in NYC June 9th, 2011.
