DIY DAYS Philadelphia was a mix of people working in different creative disciplines and there was much talk about ways to tell stories beyond the screen. The following panel was focused on transmedia storytelling. Video of the panel will follow soon.

PANEL – EXTENDING THE EXPERIENCE With a decline in the penetration of traditional advertising due to digital technology and the emergence of an on-demand culture, studios and brands are experimenting with extending the way they reach audiences and potential customers. ARG (alternate reality games), virtualization, visualization, geo-locational services, augmented reality and mobile apps are all extending storytelling experiences. But how do you strike the balance between an industry that has come to measure itself by impressions with the value of audience engagement? Where does IP reside when authorship changes and the audience or consumer becomes creator? And is it possible to channel brand dollars into original content? MICHAEL MONELLO (Campfire Media, producer of the Blair Witch Project), BRIAN CLARK (founder of GMD Studios) and DAVID BEARD (Chief Technology Architect STM), JOHN THREAT (media threat) MODERATOR IVAN ASKWITH (Big Spaceship)

J.C. Hutchins‘ newest work entitled “Personal Effects: Dark Art” is more than just a traditional novel it is an “out of book” experience. A collaboration between St. Martin’s Press and Jordan Weisman’s company Smith & Thinker, “Personal Effects: Dark Art” is a transmedia experience which enables readers to travel beyond the written word. Packaged to look and feel like a personal notebook, the novel is accompanied by a series of artifacts such as ID cards, phone numbers, character blogs and twitter accounts. In our discussion Hutchins explains the creative process behind the novel and extended experience.

Nina Paley wants you to see her film which is exactly what most filmmakers desire. But the way in which Paley is releasing her debut feature Sita Sings the Blues is a bit different. She wants to give it to you for free via a creative commons license. In fact she is encouraging her audience to take and distribute the work and if they profit she just asks that they share some of the revenue. As Paley experiments with a free hybrid model that also includes a paying theatrical release (which was landed after her theatrical distributors saw the demand for Sita) she intends to be open and transparent about her findings. In our discussion we cover a range of topics – music clearance, copyright, how culture wants to be free, and turning your audience into distribution hubs.
