This week I will be addressing and working on media integration. While working on my site I would also Like to add a social media page that can be integrated and incorporated into the site as well, this way I will be able to reach a larger audience.
I plan on making an Instagram account where I can share short content which can lead my followers and viewers to visit my site and consume my longer and more in-depth content. Here, I will be sharing pictures, videos, and links as well as covering with other creators who share similar interests in order to build a community. On this Instagram account, I will be encouraging Transmedia by building multiple audiences on different platforms in order to introduce and curate an audience that can interact with my content in different ways and allow for engagement that is possibly consistent and longer lasting.
The article, POKEMON AS TRANSMEDIA STORYTELLING, written by Kevinbrittenylauren (2013) discusses how despite that Pokémon started many years ago, Pokémon content is still extremely relevant today.
Transmedia Storytelling can be defined by Henry Jenkins, “Transmedia storytelling is a process. Elements of fiction get dispersed across multiple media for the purpose of creating a coordinated entertainment experience” and additionally, “A transmedia text does not simply disperse information: it provides a set of roles and goals which readers can assume as they enact aspects of the story through their everyday life.” (2007, as cited by Kevinbrittenylauren, 2013).
In summary, the use of Transmedia has the opportunity to curate audiences that can view media from different perspectives in order to create ideas and audiences, for example, Pokémon.
