Audiences now engage with media across multiple platforms, following the fictions of films and books across social media and video games, exploring brand universes and publishing enterprises across television, comics, websites, apps, etc. This transmedia phenomenon is now a defining strategy across the media industries for generating multiple revenue streams and for building closer relationships between content, brands and audiences. But when looking across the likes of online gaming, publishing, mobile media, digital marketing, and film and television, which transmedia practices really make up the UK's multiplatform landscape?

Transmedia UK: Sector by Sector tackles this question by beginning to map the ways in which different UK media sectors are now responding to ideas, concepts and pressures of transmediality. This academic-industry workshop aims to identify the strategies and principles that now make up the transmedia practices in and across online gaming, publishing, mobile media, digital marketing, film and television and beyond, examining which practices operate across these various sectors while exploring what it now means to distinguish between storytelling, publishing, interactivity and marketing in today's transmedia environment.

Media Organisations involved:
  • Conducttr, a world-renowned audience engagement platform that integrates storytelling with gaming automation to build immersive, online and personalised gaming experiences for its users;
  • HarperCollins, one of the world’s foremost book publishers with a catalogue ranging from fiction to apps;
