TRANSMEDIA

As talked about in the lecture  Henry Jenkins states that, “Transmedia storytelling represents a process where integral elements of a fiction get dispersed systematically across multiple delivery channels  for the purpose of crafting a unified and coordinated entertainment experience. Ideally, each medium makes it own unique contribution to the unfolding of the story”

With our internet driven media world, transmedia through the same universe is a very common thing and something that creates a wider audience who has a more in-depth understanding and appreciation during the universe. As Maude Garrett talks about in her Star Wars 101 video “the stories didn’t stop when the movies did”

  1. Just had a look at Wooieepedia! Had no idea that Caravan of Courage: An Ewok Adventure was a thing! I thought I was a Star Wars fan…. Hope this adds to the universe I’ve come to know and love.

  2. Hey Brooke! Awesome blog post. I especially loved the execution of your YouTube video! How did you make that?! I also liked the conciseness of your content below your YouTube Video; it outlined all the integral elements of your video well! The only parts I think have room for improvement is the definition of trans-media and the title of your post. While I understood the Henry Jenkins quote personally I think perhaps it could have been elaborated on so lay people, outside of the subject, could more easily understand what he meant. Your title could also could have been slightly more innovative to draw more audience members in. But besides that – Top Job! I thought you might also like to have a look at this star wars comic to see how the channel of comics contributes to the Star wars universe! Have a look http://hellocomic.com/star-wars/c1/p1

  3. Hey Brooke,
    I enjoyed your summary video, as I am not an expert on Star Wars, it was insightful to learn that it’s also a form of transmedia storytelling! It was good that you mentioned Wookieepedia and how it expands the Star Wars universe as well as that of the fans. As a transmedia narrative, it’s aim is to enhance the experience for the fans and deepen their knowledge and familiarity with the world and as I just checked the site out myself, it’s safe to say it definitely does that! Thanks for the insight 🙂

  4. Hey Brooke. First of all, I found your YouTube video really insightful. Using ‘Star Wars’, a text that is known and is so popular in today’s world was smart, as more people will be able to relate to the topic of ‘Transmedia’, as opposed to using a text that is only known by some. The text underneath the video, which basically outlined all key elements of what transmedia is, and how it relates to our modern society, was also very smart, as it gave some context to the topic, which will only aid to the understanding of anyone viewing this post. Both the video and the text below it work together seamlessly. However, I think you possibly could have gone more into how Star Wars ties into Transmedia. Giving a few more examples, in my opinion, would only strengthen what is already a really insightful post. I’ll provide a link below that goes into the topic a little more. That being said, I think you did a really great job!
