Meet me at StoryWorld

Meet me at the StoryWorld Conference in San Francisco October 31- November 2.

These are exciting times in the media industry. Content, technology and consumers are colliding in new ways, opening the door to previously unheard-of opportunities—and requiring new approaches to creativity and collaboration.

Together, partners from diverse industries can work together to craft a “story world”—the universe from which multiple narratives emerge, expressed via books, games, movies, social media, apps and more.

StoryWorld Conference + Expo gets its name from the idea that the development of a cohesive universe, in which characters and storylines coexist and follow the rules of an established mythology—is at the center of any successful, lucrative, well-crafted transmedia effort.


Transmedia at the Austin Film Festival!

Please join us for the transmedia panel at the upcoming Austin Film Festival Conference October 20-23. The film festival runs from October 20-27th. Here is the information on the panel:

Transmedia Storytelling
Stephen F. Austin Hotel, Assembly Room
As people spend more time on a variety of entertainment devices (1. mobile, 2. iPad, 3. laptop, 4. TV are the order in which 18-34 year olds list their most important devices in their life) more storytellers are being asked to write for as many media outlets as possible. Join this discussion about how filmmakers and screenwriters are embracing transmedia storytelling to tell stories and reach a wider audience.
Mike Fry, Bob Soderstrom, Fred Strype
Moderated by Daniel Lorenzetti

Badges for admittance to the conference and the festival can be purchased on the festival site.

See you all in Austin!
