This Is Transmedia

By Ted Hope

I am producing Lance Weiler‘s HOPE IS MISSING (with Anne Carey). It’s hard to call it just another feature film when Lance does so much more to expand the story world. In the past, I have encouraged filmmakers to make a short to demonstrate their skills or help clarify the world they want to create. Yes, Lance made a short for HopeIsMissing (aka H.i.M.), and you can watch it at the bottom of this post, but that’s just a tip of the iceberg.

When I speak about it to studio execs, most still don’t know what I mean when I say it is a transmedia project. Hopefully that will never be the case again once we make the feature. One would think that this would have already changed though by what has been done already.

Perhaps you were at Sundance and encountered the PANDEMIC. It was an installation at New Frontier. It was an online experience. It was location-based ARG. It was story R&D. Lance explains:

How I Learned to Start a Pandemic from Turnstyle Video on Vimeo.

We had Lance on KillerHope and he explains it a bit more:

The press sure picked up on it. I posted some of it here before. Here’s Gizmodo.

Oh yes, and here’s the short:

    The very next time I read a blog, I hope that it won’t disappoint me as much as this particular one. I mean, I know it was my choice to read through, but I really believed you would probably have something useful to say. All I hear is a bunch of moaning about something that you could possibly fix if you were not too busy searching for attention.

    The very next time I read a blog, Hopefully it doesn’t fail me as much as this particular one. After all, I know it was my choice to read through, but I genuinely believed you’d have something useful to say. All I hear is a bunch of whining about something you could possibly fix if you weren’t too busy searching for attention.

    Can I simply just say what a comfort to uncover someone that actually knows what they’re talking about online. You actually understand how to bring an issue to light and make it important. A lot more people need to check this out and understand this side of your story. I was surprised you aren’t more popular given that you definitely possess the gift.

    It’s difficult to find educated people about this topic, but you seem like you know what you’re talking about! Thanks

    I really like looking through an article that will make men and women think. Also, thank you for allowing for me to comment!

    I’m impressed, I must say. Rarely do I come across a blog that’s both equally educative and entertaining, and without a doubt, you’ve hit the nail on the head. The issue is an issue that too few men and women are speaking intelligently about. I am very happy that I found this during my search for something concerning this.
