Stories are increasingly told across a variety of formats - books, comics, events, films, games and TV programmes. This is known as transmedia storytelling or multiplatform storytelling.
This course will help you tell compelling stories across multiple platforms.
We’ll look at examples such as The Avengers, The Matrix and Transformers - and put theory into practice, by retelling the popular fable, The Three Little Pigs, in a multiplatform format.
You’ll learn with Daniel H Byun - the film director also known as 변혁.
Over four weeks, we’ll ask:
- What is transmedia storytelling? And how does it differ from related ideas like media convergence and one source multi use (OSMU)?
- How do the key elements of character, plot and setting create a memorable story?
- What can we learn from folklore and traditional narratives?
- And how is storytelling in the digital age different from previous forms?
