Transmedia archaeology : storytelling in the borderlines of science fiction, comics and pulp magazines by Carlos Alberto Scolari( )

11 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 176 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Throughout the world, people now engage with stories across multiple media, following the adventures of Doctor Who from television to the Web, exploring the Batman universe across cinema, television, comics, and more. This may seem recent, but transmedia storytelling is not a new phenomenon. History is filled with popular fiction, whose stories extend across different media as yesteryear's fan communities also participated in the act of expanding fictional worlds. In Transmedia Archaeology, Carlos A. Scolari, Paolo Bertetti and Matthew Freeman examine manifestations of transmedia storytelling not only in different historical periods but also in different countries, spanning the UK, the US and Argentina. They take us into the worlds of Conan the Barbarian, Superman and El Eternauta, and explore transmedia storytelling as part of 20th century mass culture, fandom, narrative practices, genres, and even political activism, giving us an introduction to the archaeology of transmedia"--Publisher
Historicising transmedia storytelling : early twentieth-century transmedia story worlds by Matthew Freeman( )

18 editions published between 2016 and 2019 in English and held by 172 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Tracing the industrial emergence of transmedia storytelling-typically branded a product of the contemporary digital media landscape-this book provides a historicised intervention into understandings of how fictional stories flow across multiple media forms. Through studies of the storyworlds constructed for The Wizard of Oz, Tarzan, and Superman, the book reveals how new developments in advertising, licensing, and governmental policy across the twentieth century enabled historical systems of transmedia storytelling to emerge, thereby providing a valuable contribution to the growing field of transmedia studies as well as to understandings of media convergence, popular culture, and historical media industries."
The world of The walking dead by Matthew Freeman( )

11 editions published between 2019 and 2020 in English and held by 158 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"An accessible introduction to the world of The Walking Dead, this book looks across platforms and analytical frameworks to characterize the fictional world of The Walking Dead and how its audiences make use of it. From comics and television to social media, apps, and mobile games, utilizing concepts derived from Literary Studies, Media Studies, History, Anthropology and Religious Studies, Matthew Freeman examines the functions and affordances of new digital platforms. In doing so, he establishes a new transdisciplinary framework for analyzing imaginary worlds across multiple media platforms, bolstering the critical arena of world-building studies by providing a greater array of vocabulary, concepts, and approaches. The World of the Walking Dead is an engaging exploration of stories, their platforms, and their reception, ideal for students and scholars of world-building, film and tv studies, new media, and everything in-between"--

Industrial approaches to media : a methodological gateway to industry studies by Matthew Freeman( )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 144 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This guidebook, aimed at those interested in studying media industries, provides direction in ways best suited to collaborative dialogue between media scholars and media professionals. While the study of media industries is a focal point at many universities around the world - promising, as it might, rich dialogues between academia and industry - understandings of the actual methodologies for researching the media industries remain vague. What are the best methods for analysing the workings of media industries - and how does one navigate those methods in light of complex deterrents like copyright and policy, not to mention the difficulty of gaining access to the media industries? Responding to these questions, Industrial Approaches to Media offers practical, theoretical, and ethical principles for the field of media industry studies, providing its first full methodological exploration. It features key scholars such as Henry Jenkins, Michele Hilmes, Paul McDonald and Alisa Perren. --
Global convergence cultures : transmedia Earth by Matthew Freeman( Book )

2 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 39 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Today's convergent media industries readily produce stories that span multiple media, telling the tales of superheroes across comics, film and television, inviting audiences to participate in the popular universes across cinema, novels, the Web, and more. This transmedia phenomenon may be a common strategy in Hollywood's blockbuster fiction factory, tied up with digital marketing and fictional world-building, but transmediality is so much more than global movie franchises. Different cultures around the world are now making new and often far less commercial uses of transmediality, applying this phenomenon to the needs and structures of a nation and re-thinking it in the form of cultural, political and heritage projects. This book offers an exploration of these national and cultural systems of transmediality around the world, showing how national cultures - including politics, people, heritage, traditions, leisure and so on - are informing transmediality in different countries. The book spans four continents and twelve countries, looking across the UK, Spain, Portugal, France, Estonia, USA, Canada, Colombia, Brazil, Japan, India, and Russia"--
