Viral marketing & transmedia storytelling
Almost daily, we hear about successful online campaigns that go viral. Today this is no longer restricted to a film (viral), but means designing a crossmedia, multimedia and transmedia campaign.
Transmedia-oriented communication strategies link the conventional media with online & mobile platforms, networks, message boards, blogs or distribution channels like messenger services, podcasts, Skype, web TV, apps or games. Transmedia storytelling plays an important role here. The conception of the story holds the campaign together and creates the defining motivation for sharing it. The story stimulates the interest of the user over several communication channels and should be designed, fragmented and produced for every medium.
This event opens new perspectives and shows how viral design can be developed and implemented in ways that are specific to various media. Using several practical examples and exercises, you develop ideas that meet the diverse requirements of the different media as well as the big picture.
This event organized by Eyes & Ears of Europe and DW is aimed primarily at employees of media and communication companies, (post) production firms, design studios, agencies and consultancies. Persons interested in the media, students and trainees are also very welcome.
