In the best case a job ;) I've always been interested in inventing and telling stories, but over the course of my education, I lost focus of that to a degree. By joining this group I'd like to refocus, meet other people that tell stories and maybe even find collaborators to create stories with.
Transmedia for me means leaving the idea of a linear story behind and instead turning the story into space for the reader to explore and discover. Text as an adventure.
Stories that forgo the simple black-and-white. Stories and characters that shimmer. Stories that can be seen from various points of view. Stories that play in a living, breathing world. Stories that stay with you even after you finished. Examples? Myst. Battlestar Galactica. The Lord of the Rings. Das Schwarze Auge.
At first, I wanted to become a playwright. Then I realised that I can tell a lot more stories in a lot more ways in a lot more mediums, so I became a game designer.
