June's StoryCode Immersion is focused on Business Models for Transmedia. It will be broken into two parts:
Part 1 will be presented by Mike Knowlton and Aina Abiodun and will focus on Business Structures. We will talk about the different ways you can set-up your cross-platform venture initially.
Part 2 will be led by Lina Srivastava. Lina will explore the different types of business models that exist for transmedia storytelling. She will walk us through basic types of models that are usable and useful in the context of interactive content, looking at the factors that you should consider in creating a well-managed project, storyworld, or campaign.
Lina Srivastava is a social innovation strategist, combining activism, technology, culture, and storytelling. An attorney by training from New York University School of Law, Lina is the creator of the Transmedia Activism framework, and has been involved in campaigns for several documentaries, including Oscar-winning Born into Brothels and The Devil Came on Horseback. The former Executive Director of Kids with Cameras, and the Association of Video and Filmmakers, she is the strategist for VODO, 3Generations, Lakou Mizik, and Who Is Dayani Cristal?. Lina has provided strategic project design to a group of social impact organizations, including UNESCO, the World Bank, UNICEF, MobileActive, Shine Global and BYkids.
Please feel free to contribute your own experiences on these topics during the workshop.
**PLEASE NOTE** - we had approximately half of the people who RSVP'ed for the last Immersion drop-off within 24-hours before the event. Please don't do this again. We try to keep this programming free, but when this happens it doesn't give people on the waiting list enough time to plan. We ask that you only RSVP if you are committed to attending, and if you do need to change your RSVP please do it at least 3 days before the event.
StoryCode’s Immersions are a “get your hands dirty” series of working sessions meant to educate and share knowledge about the various complexities involved in creating successful immersive media projects. These sessions are highly interactive and intimate. Bring your computer and be ready to roll up your sleeves.
This will be hosted in the "flex space" near Lincoln Center Elinor Bunin Hall. The Flex Space is off to the left if you are looking at the Elinor Bunin theater entrance.
