Recipes for Transmedia Storytelling
This is a research document about transmedia storytelling, made by students of the Utrecht School of the Arts in assignment for the theatre company Tryater.
Along with our own work, we’ve also examined transmedial work made by others, in order to get a better view on what has already been done in this line of work. But because we, for example, can’t put video inside this book, we’ve also made a website where we’ve documented our research and our concepts: transmediarecipes.wordpress.com
Defining transmedia: “The technique of telling a single story or story experience across multiple platforms and formats using current digital technologies, and is not to be confused with traditional cross-platform media franchises, sequels or adaptations”. The concepts, design choices and work process are explained in depth in this book. What can we learn from these ideas for learning design?
