I’m often asked about transmedia and how my company Seize the Media is using it in the projects that we’re developing or producing. Besides being an excellent story R&D tool, transmedia also offers a wide range of benefits for those wishing to tell stories in the digital age. It’s a given that media consumption is changing and much has been written about an entertainment industry that finds itself smack in the center of a major transition. And while transmedia might not be for every storyteller, there are things that can be learned from the process of adapting and designing a story that travels beyond one device, platform or medium that can apply to anyone. For instance transmedia can create new opportunities to fund, develop, write, produce and / or distribute the stories you wish to tell.

This coming fall I’ll be part of an exciting training program called Transmedia Next which takes place in London on September 8, 9, & 10th. Over the course of three intensive days we’ll share an approach that my company has been employing on various films, TV, and games that we’ve produced. The event is funded by EU Media and will be open to those in Europe. We’ll be working with a small group of people as we pull back the curtain and share our process. Space is limited so if you’re interested you best hurry. There are also a number of scholarships for those based in the UK thanks to support from Skillset.
