Transmedial storytelling 24.11.2016

Have we managed to create a storyworld?
Have we achieved transmediality?
Is there a franchise in this?
Do we invite others to participate?
What do we offer a "Behind the Veil" fan?

A Prezi discussing Marie-Laure Ryan's article.

Using the example of Skam from NRK:
Expansion - minor figures gets larger roles.
Modification - presenting different versions of the protoworld
Transposition - moving the world in Space or time. This is hard to demonstrate using Skam, but easier with LEGO.

Brickartist building art from LEGO.
Tintin game.

Hero with a thousand faces, J. Campbell, summary from wikipedia.

LEGO refuses to sell bricks to artist Ai WeiWei, then repents.
Ai Weiwei's art at Alcatraz.

Wired describes the Maori Cyber attack on BZPower
About the Maori activist attack on BZPower
 Counter strike against the Maori activists
The Guardian on the Maori victory of LEGO
Tales of the Tohunga described at Brickipedia

Challenge of the day:
We want to promote a show, but we don't want anybody to know we are doing it.
How do we use transmedia? Why do we use transmedia?

Transmedial storytelling 3rd of November

Interconnected media, strategic cross-media

Last year's  entry with links.

Lord of the ring lego game cutscenes.

Sherlock Fanfic - NSFW.

Social media/video integration, Periscope and Meerkat/houseparty.

Alternate reality games: Project Architeutis - from the American Navy, on Facebook.

Social media branding - engaging with users to tell the story of a box. Zappo's delivery box.

Increasing interest for Wikipedia by using Pinterest.

Orlando shooting Fusion news coverage - from different media and different points of view.

#Morethanmean - creating a story from fragments online, repositioning the messages and words and then recounting the story, to see it be retold in new fragments over different media.


New storytelling genres in journalism; Snowfall from New York Times, Gutten i plastposen from Dagbladet.

"Native transmedia journalism" - many sources pulled together into growing and developing stories.

Digital Retorik 27-28 april

Hva er retorikk?
Rhetoric refers to the study and uses of written, spoken and visual language. It investigates how language is used to organize and maintain social groups, construct meanings and identities, coordinate behavior, mediate power, produce change, and create knowledge. Rhetoricians often assume that language is constitutive (we shape and are shaped by language), dialogic (it exists in the shared territory between self and other), closely connected to thought (mental activity as "inner speech") and integrated with social, cultural and economic practices. Rhetorical study and written literacy are understood to be essential to civic, professional and academic life.
Rhetoric began 2500 years ago as the study of the forms of communication and argument essential to public, political and legal life in Ancient Greece. It has since evolved a rich and diverse body of research, texts, and pedagogies.
