Wed 14 March 2pm Seminar: Two different cultures building stories together: Hollywood and transmedia storytelling

Carolyn’s New Media projects include video games, virtual worlds, webisodes, intelligent toy systems, and transmedia entertainment. She’s the author the groundbreaking book on the field, “Digital Storytelling, Second Edition: A Creator's Guide to Interactive Entertainment” (Focal Press). Carolyn is a part time faculty member for the University of New Mexico’s cutting edge Interdisciplinary Film and Digital Media program and a lifetime member of the Writers Guild of America.
