fee EUR 150

This workshop course introduces participants in the world of transmedia narratives. After a general introduction of the distinctive features of this kind of stories, the workshop presents a series of examples of transmedia storytelling experiences (fiction and non-fiction) to understand the logic behind this narrative strategy. During the workshop the participants will develop a transmedia narrative project working in groups of no more than three students. The project may be oriented to fiction or non-fiction narratives. The story to be expanded may be of own creation or it may be worked from an existing story (novel, videogame, film, comic, etc.). Each project should also include a strategy for encouraging and managing user-generated contents. The final objective of the workshop is to make participants "think in transmedia" and apply the basic principles of this narrative strategy.
