EMDA 362 - Transmedia Storytelling Genres


4 credits
Uses a specific genre - such as Science Fiction, Noir, Horror, Steampunk, Fantasy, or Documentary - to explore transmedia storytelling. Transmedia storytelling uses different media platforms to elaborate and extend a common “storyworld.” Rather than simply adapting a narrative from one medium to another, characters and settings are shared between media such as video, fiction, animation, costume design, prop construction, graphic novels, computer games, and voice acting. Genres vary by term, but in each case, we will examine genre conventions that span different media, along with narrative strategies specific to those media. As part of the class, students produce their own transmedia work. Repeatable up to 12 credits for different genres. Prerequisite(s): EMDA 201  or EMDA 202  or COMM 215  or EMDA 203  or EMDA 204  or EMDA 205. (Cross-listed with COMM 362 .)
Grade mode designated on a CRN basis each term. Students should consult current term schedule.
