“Transmedia Now” Week On In Media Res

By Ted Hope

Today’s guest post is from Elizabeth Strickler, informing us of what is going over at InMediaRes this week (and a wee bit of cross promotional activity).

In Media Res is dedicated to experimenting with collaborative, multi-modal forms of online scholarship. Each weekday, a different participant curates a short (less than 3-minute) video clip accompanied by a 300-350-word impressionistic response. We use the title “curator” because, like a curator in a museum, the participant repurposes a media object that already exists and provides context through their commentary. Theme weeks are designed to generate a networked conversation between curators and the public around a particular topic.

For the week of July 26-30th, the theme is “Transmedia Now”. The curators are: Christy Dena, Marc Ruppel, Robert Pratten, Brian Newman, and Ted Hope.

They will be discussing what is happening right now in the much-debated term, Transmedia. The subjects covered range from Canadian superheroes to the links between storytelling and mapping. Stay tuned and jump in when it starts. If you don’t like what is happening in the independent entertainment industry, this will be your chance to speak up. (You do have to login to comment.)

Thanks again for your participation.

Elizabeth Strickler is the Associate Director of the Digital Arts Entertainment Lab at Georgia State University.

This site could not have been built without the help and insight of Michael Morgenstern. My thanks go out to him.

Help save indie film and give this guy a job in web design or film!
