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 has been in the UK, we present the first of two interviews from leading practitioners in the UK. In this podcast Mike Dicks, Senior Policy Exec at PACT (kind of the UK equivalent to the US’ producers guild) talks about transmedia, Dr Who, Canvas/YouView, getting your work financed and selling your finished product.

Before making films, Josh and I both worked for a software company managing websites. Between this and numerous things we tried to do on the side, we learned how to design websites and master web marketing. This, in my opinion, is… read more

  • NEW BREED: Who Profits From VOD?
    by Zak Forsman – As the team here at Sabi Pictures develops our evolving strategy for distributing Heart of Now and White Knuckles in 2010, VOD and DVD have been strongly recommended by consultants like Stacey Parks of Film Specific as having the best potential for direct revenue. So I have been following VOD in particular, hoping it might… read more

With 40k in hand Wyatt McDill and Megan Huber set out to make a first feature on their own terms. Having spent a few years pushing a script through development hell they came out on the other side wanting to “just make a movie.” The end result is a DIY voyeuristic web thriller entitled Four Boxes

THE STORY: Trevor, Amber and Rob run Go Time Liquidators – an ambulance-chasing eBay auction business. In a dead man’s destroyed suburban house they start watching a bookmarked surveillance-cam website:fourboxes.tv. If fourboxes.tv isn’t just more internet BS, then a crazed creep they call Havoc is building enough bombs to, like, kill everybody in the U.S.

Designed to embrace and work within the confines of an internet experience the films stars Justin Kirk from (Weeds). Four Boxes enjoyed a festival run with stops at SXSW in 09 and has just recently returned from the Cannes Market. This fall Wyatt and Megan will stage a hybrid release of Four Boxes with a mix of touring, VOD, along with few special internet surprises. We caught up with the husband and wife filmmaking team to discuss the project and the freedom that can be found by working within your limitations.

Step into the world of Four Boxes
