What’s Transmedia?

Good question! I had never heard of it, but it makes sense, even more so with the upcoming generation who are used to multimedia interactions.

So what is it?!
From what I gathered from Tom Denver’s interview with Houston Howard (and I’d encourage any storyteller to read it – not just screenwriters), it’s using different ways – different forms of media – to engage your audience in your story. Some of the engagement is to make money and some is to engage your audience. And which forms of media or interaction you use depends on what works best for the story. The skies the limit!!

A Screenwriter’s (and Story Writer’s) Must Does

movieIn honor of the made up but very important (for screenwriters and movie lovers) #nationalscreenwritersday, here are 10 things to remember when writing your screenplay, or when creating most any story from ScreenwritingU – one of the people who set up this “special” day.

National Screenwriters Day – January 5th, 2018

Did you you January 5th is National Screenwriters Day?

It probably doesn’t matter to too many people, unless you’re a screenwriter, like I am.

And if you’re a screenwriter you know how hard it is to find authentic screenplays to read. Well ScreenwritingU and Stage 32 are putting together this “National Screenwriters Day” January 5th, to get screenwriters a little notice (and to sell their wares – Yes, everyone is trying to sell something and your email is a big insentive to put this day on, besides saying they want to promote screenwriters.) Do I sound a bit cynical. Yes, I am but that’s okay because we can all help each other in this endeavor.

These guys ask for your email address and request you help them promote screenwriters day (purely voluntary, of course) and you get access to 100 Oscar-nominated screenplays. And they are the real thing. I’ve downloaded a couple already.

That’s a fair shake, I think. Especially since you can unsubscribe any time you like to the list they have just put you on.

Just like writers need to read books, screenwriters need to read screenplays so you might want to consider signing up.

Wishing you all the best in the New Year!
