CARLOS SCOLARI TRANSMEDIA PDF

They concur with Henry Jenkins, who coined the phrase and the concept in , to deny technological determinism and the central importance of digital technologies behind the advent of transmedia storytelling. This is a very broad definition indeed, which allows them to highlight older narrative techniques which are clearly, as they successfully demonstrate, diachronically related to transmedia narration. The latter can also lead to the creation of a storyworld through many different media, delivery platforms and storytellers, but without having a unified story which moves forward or one common, consistent world expanding consistently, coherently and simultaneously thanks to strong coordination across various media, and from one storyteller to another. This terminological problem has been a recurring one over the years, with many scholars taking liberties with the notion to the extent that they tend to obfuscate the qualitatively innovative nature of the present moment.

They concur with Henry Jenkins, who coined the phrase and the concept in , to deny technological determinism and the central importance of digital technologies behind the advent of transmedia storytelling. This is a very broad definition indeed, which allows them to highlight older narrative techniques which are clearly, as they successfully demonstrate, diachronically related to transmedia narration.

The latter can also lead to the creation of a storyworld through many different media, delivery platforms and storytellers, but without having a unified story which moves forward or one common, consistent world expanding consistently, coherently and simultaneously thanks to strong coordination across various media, and from one storyteller to another. This terminological problem has been a recurring one over the years, with many scholars taking liberties with the notion to the extent that they tend to obfuscate the qualitatively innovative nature of the present moment.

This should not detract from the many strengths of this thoroughly researched book and the many insights it does provide on storytelling in 20 th century popular culture, but it does highlight a certain limitation which goes beyond terminology. Wolf , a cross-over technique where writers find a way to link two independent narratives and storyworlds by retroactively building narrative bridges between them — Superman and Batman are suddenly revealed to inhabit the same storyworld, for instance.

These four techniques all participate to what Jenkins identified as the end result of transmedia storytelling: world-building, with texts incrementally elaborating a persistent and consistent world which can ultimately survive its originators, its early readers and even its original characters. Finally, the authors never forget to include active audience participation, which, as they successfully demonstrate in the three case studies making up the book, was another central element of this early form of expansive storytelling, even though they tend to leave aside the other pole of transmedia storytelling — synergistic integration of resources and strategies by media conglomerates.

By recounting the complex story of the slow popularization of the character, mainly after the death of its creator, Robert E. The essay is thus very successful in showing how audience participation, a key feature of transmedia narration, did not require the Internet to appear and was already a force in the s thanks to written correspondence, fanzines, cooperative publishing and fan conventions. Early in the history of the character, therefore, there was indeed co-creation rather than adaptation, which is true of transmedia narration.

Yet the recognisability of a character borrowed by other storytellers be they producers or consumers of content in other media is a very old phenomenon indeed, as he himself demonstrates, and does not offer any valuable insight into recent storytelling innovations, if only to highlight the type of storytelling that did not yet exist.

There, DC Comics published a one-off issue of their comic book, which included a new adventure of Superman and Lois Lane, set at the Fair. This offers the clearest and most convincing example in the book of one story being told simultaneously and cumulatively in different media thanks to strong cooperation and coordination among producers of content. The scale and sophistication of such marketing operations has immensely changed today, but there is not really any qualitative difference. Written by Carlos A.

Scolari, the essay describes the story and its fascinating re incarnations through the decades, from the s to the present day. This is an excellent example of the complex ways popular culture can work and the way it relates to political and societal issues, and it does a lot to help the book reach its major achievement: demonstrating how audiences have been for decades active in the co-creation, transformation and reappropriation of characters Conan, Superman, El Eternauta.

At the same time, the coordinated emergence of expanding and immersive storyworlds appears to be a more recent and more authentically transmedia-related phenomenon. It is indeed telling that when they come closest to our current understanding, at the NYC Fair, corporate marketing which after all is all about integration, synergies and consistency is central to the phenomenon. Transmedia is at its highest point of relevance when it situates itself at the intersection between media conglomerates and empowered audiences in the way they relate to, and sometimes the way they struggle over, expanding narratives.
