Transmedia – Erickson Media

We have the ability to be online all the time, whether that’s on a laptop, or mobile phone, or desktop, or Internet-connected television.”

The idea is to utilize these different platforms, with their unique attributes, to tell a story.

It should be difficult for you “…to approach anything creative without thinking: How else will this be consumed?”
