Let me introduce you to Transmedia Storytelling, something we will be discussing in a bit more detail later on. For now, it’s a good illustration for what I wanted to convince you of this segment — you shouldn’t feel locked in by your medium. There are as many ways to tell a story as there are stories to tell. Take some time to explore the different methods you could use to convey the information. Maybe video is what you need. Maybe audio would make more sense. How about a powerpoint presentation or a photo gallery? Performance art?
Experiment, try different things, realize that a story is just information delivered across a platform and that you, the storyteller can choose to craft that information to fit the platform of your choice.
Before I forget, since I mentioned performance art meet Jillian McDonald, a performance artist we will be talking about a lot more in a story we’re doing on America’s favorite decomposing slabs of flesh, the Zombie. In the meanwhile, I’ll leave you with a piece she did about Billy Bob Thorton which is a bit more relevant.
