For those interested in transmedia, there are some excellent panels being proposed by experienced creatives. I highly recommend the following:
Maureen McHugh’s ‘ARGS Don’t Work: The Future of Transmedia Stories‘
Jay Bushman’s ‘Transmedia Artists Guild: New Media Needs New Representation‘
Brooke Thompson’s ‘Documenting your Transmedia Project (how to & why)‘
Andrea Phillips’ ‘Hoax or Transmedia? The Ethics of Pervasive Fiction‘
Steve Peters’ ‘Audience Engagement in the Transmedia Age‘
Jenka Garfinkel’s ‘Your Life Is A Transmedia Experience‘
Behnam Karbassi’s ‘Transmedia Production: Making The New Frontier‘
I’ll update with more as appropriate.
Update: Evonne Heyning’s ‘Causebuilding Games: Fundraising & Social Gaming Streams‘
Update: Gareth Skarka’s ‘+5 Sword of ePublishing: Lessons from Tabletop RPGs‘
Additionally, I have had the pleasure of being asked to be a speaker on a proposed SXSW Film panel being organized by Ross Pruden. The panel is called, “Profiting From Piracy: Selling Your Digital-Age Content.” While tangential to the topics of transmedia and collaborative commercial entertainment, this panel strikes at the core of my personal beliefs about the challenges and opportunities for those creatives operating in a digital world. Issues covered include business models designed to address digital piracy, monetization of digital goods, addressing the economics of artificial scarcity and the infinite goods found in a digital world, copyright considerations, etc. Very excited to be a part of this panel!
