A year in Showcases (Part 1)

by April Arrglington on December 21st, 2011

As most of you know, I LOVE case studies. So it often pains me when I can't get to all of the projects I want to profile. As we wrap up 2011, I've decided to compile a list of great Transmedia projects I have discovered through out the year. Most of these are a work in progress, but all are worth of the support of the Transmedia community. To make the long list a bit more practical to consume, I've decided to divide it up in 3: Projects showcased at Storyworld, Projects showcased at DIY DAYS, and Project showcased through out the year over at Transmedia LA. If you want to mention any other projects worth a look that for some reason have skipped my radar, please do so in the comments section.
Clockwork Watch: One of my personal favorites, because it's Steampunk themed. Developed by Yomi Ayeni, the project has of recently secured funding through a successful Indiegogo campaign. The property is launching the Transmedia extravaganza early next year. In the meantime, catch up on the production blog over at: www.clockworkwatch.org.
Research & Development(s): A pervasive experience based on Quackery, developed by Haley Moore. The project is heavily based on props and tangible objects, which I think is a unique and brilliant approach to Transmedia. A work in progress, you can find more on the project at malloryquirk.com.

Adore: An urban fantasy story world where fairies and their enchanted friends engage in timeless adventures. The property is based on the art of Jasmine Becket-Griffith, and it's developed by Witchfactory and Starlight Runner Entertainment. The experience is in packaging and pre-production stages. Go to Witchfactory for more information.

Colour Bleed: A fantasy world where a couple dance the colour back into a grey world. The property is been developed by Rhys Miles Thomas. The project it's unique and brilliant because it relies heavily on live dance performances. The experience is still in development in hopes of going live next year. Currently the team is getting ready to launch an Indiegogo campaign.
We Dream of Nothing: A science fiction fantasy property that connects two characters at opposite ends of the universe. Developed by Paul Burke, the experience is getting ready to launch next year. To sign up for updates go to: wedreamofnothing.com.

Time Tribe: A time travel adventure for kids aged 8-13. The project is been developed by Karen Bellinger Wehner and Lucas Johnson from Silverstring Media.

You're brilliant! I can't believe how productive you've been about Storyworld! So much respect!

I'll be launching the indiegogo campaign for Colour Bleed in January!

Thanks again for the round-ups (it feels as if I'm back there over and over again - good times!)

Best wishes

Some great projects here! Have you seen our Immersedition? It's a new form of interactive book that features over 300 touchpoints of relevant content that add to the reading experience. Stuff like original and popular music soundtracks, character Twitter accounts, Google Maps, history, fashion, and more are all within the app. The debut Immersedition is of The Survivors, a paranormal YA series by Amanda Havard.

Hope you check it out! http://bit.ly/SurvivorsImmerseditionAppStore
