Today we will start thinking about the structure of our final transmedia projects, identifying the goals, audience(s), and mediums we want to work in.  We will also be discussing what types of interactive elements might make our projects more interesting.

To prepare for class, please read the following:

  • Phillips, “Fine-Tune for Depth or for Scale (Not Both)” & “Interactivity Creates Deeper Engagement” (ELMS, pdf)
  • Writer/Designer Chapter 8, “Putting Your Project to Work” (pg. 119-131)

Don’t forget to turn in the final draft of your video Public Service Announcement on Friday by midnight!

Interactive Elements to explore in class:
