I'm immersed in transmedia since 1996/97 (when we first starting using the word in our MemeStream Media model). Most people called it multi-platform media at that time. I was sitting in the middle of Silicon Valley game and tech industries after working for a major motion picture producer scriptwriting and as a writer working on a sci-fi project GOT a vision of a model for releasing a story across multiple platforms. Funny, after pitching Sony back in 2002 (after already putting 3 years in development) with a "Transmedia project" to see the word having now gone mainstream. Too cool! Though I still think most people have missed the mark on just what transmedia is and CAN be. I am all about the evolution of storytelling in all of it's amazing forms.
More meeting of minds.
I've been involved with Transmedia since '96, before most people knew the word. My background includes performance Art & video mid-late 80's Paris, feature film scriptwriting/producing, creative directing for experiential marketing & media companies.
Super event, as always - THANKS for pulling this together!
