Film Society Convergence is excited to host award-winning transmedia writer and game designer Andrea Phillips and celebrate the launch of her new book, A Creator’s Guide to Transmedia Storytelling. Her work includes an array of landmark transmedia projects for world-class companies: The Maester’s Path for HBO’s Game of Thrones, Routes Game for Channel 4 Education, the 2012 Experience for Sony Pictures, the human rights game America 2049, as well as the influential independent game Perplex City.
Phillips brings this amazing range of experience to bear in A Creator’s Guide to Transmedia Storytelling, which extends beyond simply extolling the virtues of transmedia and provides a comprehensive guide to the principals of storytelling, audience engagement, platform selection, execution challenges, big-picture strategy and structural considerations. With case studies of milestone projects, and interviews with today’s leading authorities like Mike Monello, J.C. Hutchins. Christy Dena, Sean Stewart, and Adrian Hon, Phillips constructs a framework for how readers can conceptualize and execute transmedia storytelling experiences that keep audiences engaged and hungry for more.
Andrea will be signing copies of her new book A Creator’s Guide to Transmedia Storytelling following the conversation. Copies will be available for sale before and after the event.
