Merits of Interaction: Transmedia Storytelling

If apps are the way of the future in storytelling, then it is time to frame discussions around the creation and execution of books, films, and other stories in this new landscape. With technology growing more robust each day, storytellers and their facilitators must find ways to create content that takes advantage of potential interactivity in rich and meaningful ways. In this, we discuss ways to generate high quality, interactive content that's relevant to the story worlds we are creating. Transmedia story experiences are the pathway to creating a truly immersive narrative experience. With the creator of the revolutionary ImmerseditionTM interactive book apps, enter a discussion of how creativity looks in the new paradigm: How can storytellers do what they do best with emerging technologies? How can publishers, app developers, filmmakers, even record labels and brands come together to create interactive story experiences a new generation can thrive on?
