Welcome to Transmedia Talk a new podcast covering all things story. Transmedia Talk is co-hosted by Nick Braccia and Robert Pratten and looks to shed light on the topic of transmedia storytelling with commentary, interviews and tips on how storytelling is moving into the 21st century.

In a temporary departure from our usual format while Robert was in the UK, we present the second of two interviews from leading practitioners in the UK. In this podcast Hazel Grian – leading light in the transmedia world for her ARG work with Star Trek (and here), The Red Cross and 221b for the Sherlock Holmes movie (and here) – and specialist in interactive narrative and AI.

This is a quick post but I thought this template might be useful for some people when they’re explaining their transmedia project. You’ll notice that this is focused on the experience rather than the technology: there’s no mention of platforms or business case or even audience. So there’s more that needs to be communicated to get the full picture but this is a cool way to get your point across in certain circumstances.

This is my Transmedia Radar Diagram – use it to communicate your transmedia experience to interested parties… but probably not your audience ;) Note that there’s no absolute scale for the four axes, it’s their strength relative to each other. Of course, if you’re comparing projects then they need to compare across projects too.

Transmedia Radar Diagram

Here’s a few examples to illustrate how you might use the radar diagram…

Transmedia Radar: Example 3

    At SXSW I watched Christopher Poole (founder of the infamous 4chan) introduce his new project Canvas. This isn’t as edgy as his previous meme factory. Canvas provides basic tools for users to post and alter pictures. Think of it like a message board where users have conversations through constantly evolving images. A long thread starting with a picture of… read more
