Transmedia Storytelling With Jen Begeal: What’s Now, What’s Next and How to Do It
Cross-platform storytelling. Multiplatform storytelling. Transmedia. Regardless of which term you use, it all means the same thing: integrating digital technologies and creating cross-platform experiences to enhance content.

Please join us for an evening with transmedia producer Jen Begeal, who will answer your questions about current trends and innovations in this field. Through case studies as well as a hands-on mini project, you will also learn how to incorporate interactive elements in your own projects.
