Final Assessment – What and how to submit

Make sure you have shown me your work before you put it up on youtube.

Submission or the TRANSMEDIA PROJECT :

  1. On your blog, write a reflection about the project. This should discuss what you chose to make and why. How you went about creating it. What tools you used. What you learnt. If and where appropriate, include production shots, screen grabs etc. 
  2. You should also upload your storyboards. Not all of them, but at least one or two  which you have touched up so they look good. 
  3. Create a document that describes the interaction that will take place between the audience and your transmedia experience. This could be a flow chart, an activity diagram, a sequence diagram, anything in a wireframe format that shows clearly how audiences will engage with your film and the trans mediacomponent. See examples below.
  4. The transmedia side should consist of at least one url – this could be a website you have built, a page in your blog, a twitter or facebook account, etc. But remember – you dont need to create the whole project. I want you to design a transmedia campaign that you can communicate to me, I dont want you to make or run one.
  5. A description in text and or images of additional transmedia aspects you would like to make.
  6. Remember with this project, there is an emphasis on making the presented work look good. Quality over quantity.


Select what you consider to be the five best blog posts that you have written over the semester. Write a paragraph in which you discuss why you have chosen each of the five posts and hyperlink to them from within that paragraph. Here is an example:

The first post that I have linked to is Holy Smoke which looks at the changes in media broadcast in relation to the election of the new Pope. It also shows the continued, although anachronistic, utilisation of smoke signals in international communication. Ive also chosen my post on hyperculture because it presents a history of hypertext that is couched within literary and conceptual ideas rather than technical concerns. The post highlights the presence of the idea conceptually and culturally  before it was to be realised technically. This post contrasts and compliments the History of the Internet which explores the technical evolution of the web. Spanning from the Second World War to the present, this post shows the development of the internet via military technologies during the Cold War and the traces the paranoiac mindset from which it was born. Also addressing the history of networks, I have included post from the fifth lecture Making Waves because it provides a great reminder of the materiality of networks – and it links to four other posts that explore the history of international communication and travel as network exchanges. Further taking up the subject of the materiality is my post on E-Waste. Even though its a very bleak perspective of networked culture, it speaks of a crucial and present issue that is easily overlooked by those of us who consume these products and services the most, and its therefore part of a lecture that I both like and dislike presenting. These posts present a overview of my interest areas in the course and the development of my understanding of network culture.
