This weekend I’ll be part of a team presenting a discussion, Transmedia Play Experiments, at the NAMLE (National Association for Media Literacy Education) Conference in Torrance, California. The co-presenters are Meryl Alper and (in absentia) Becky Herr-Stephenson. We’ll be discussing our work on the Flotsam Transmedia Play project, which I worked on in 2012 and early 2013. Read more
Although the redesign has been in the works for a bit, today I finally relaunched the Seymour Deeply website, which includes the full graphic novella/webcomic, a revised trailer, a team page and a page that details where Seymour Deeply is being showcased around Los Angeles in the next few weeks leading up to USC’s graduation.
First Move is the interactive portion of USC’s School of Cinematic Arts’ First Look festival, a showcase of the past year’s best student work (which includes First Film, First Pitch and First Frame). Read more
For those who have been asking, “Hey, when can I see this amazing thesis project that you’ve been working on and has been sucking up all your time?” I now have more information to share.
Not that I have been able to maintain a true and complete development blog here on this site as might have wished, but I do hope, now that I’m in my second semester of development on the project, to update the page semi-regularly with news, setback, advancements and perhaps some art and screenshots.
Seymour Deeply is actually both a “who” and a “what.” Seymour is the title character of my MFA thesis project of the same name.
Yes, despite my promise to myself of last January to resolve to post more often to this blog, I’ve been remiss. I’m trying it again this year, since there’s so much to post about. I will tease that I am in the middle of working on my MFA thesis project, Seymour Deeply. More about that will come later. I also want to talk about the bold move that DC Comics made this past September by fulfilling the plan first presented by Marv Wolfman back in the early ’80s and the original Crisis on Infinite Earths and rebooting their entire comics universe. We’re several months in now. How’s it going? And I finally would like to talk about my continued interest and involvement in transmedia storytelling (having had a fantastic class with Henry Jenkins this past fall and working on a fantastic transmedia pitch, I’m eager to discuss it further.
I’m back. And I’m blogging.
Since I’m still working out just how to show the same post on both of my blogs, here is a link to my latest blog post on the USC IMD Site. This post is part of the first assignment in our World Building class, dissecting and discussing a narrative world with which we are very familiar. Those familiar with me should not be surprised that I chose to discuss my beloved Legion of Superheroes. I hope to have this cross-posting business worked out pretty soon.
