Bernie Su at Transmedia LA–Monetizing Transmedia Story
I visited Nextspace’s Culver City location for a Transmedia LA event last night featuring Bernie Su, Co-Creator and Executive Producer of the Emmy winning Lizzie Bennet Diaries and Emma Approved.
Life After Pi–A Documentary on the last days of R&H
Hollywood Ending: A Documentary Detailing Why the Movie Capital of the World is Forcing Filmmakers to Leave‘s first part, “Life After Pi” covering the demise of Rhythm and Hues, is now out.
I didn’t need to watch it, as I am living it after 14 and a half years at R&H, but I did anyway.
It does a good job of raising some of the important issues effecting all companies and workers in the visual effects industry through the lens of the implosion at Rhythm.
“Magnificent Monarchs” Part III–Wrapup
Postmortem time: Some nice feedback on my writing sample, as well as some good pointers to a few samples out there already I missed before.
Attraction sample: “Magnificent Monarchs”, Part II
In “The Magic School Bus: Magnificent Monarchs”, guests will follow the life cycle and migration of the Monarch Butterfly between Canada and Mexico, narrated by Ms. Frizzle and the students from Scholastic Books “The Magic School Bus” series of books and TV shows. Riders will fly on a Magic School bus of their own through scenes of the butterflies’ metamorphosis and generational travel across North America.
Attraction sample- “The Magic School Bus: Magnificent Monarchs”, Part I
As a writing exercise, I wanted to create a moderate throughput dark ride, with medium-level technical requirements, not based on existing IP, where the trope of “something goes horribly wrong” isn’t he driving force behind the events of the ride.
A C-ticket family attraction with a wide appeal.
A View to a Thrill–Themed Entertainment and Bond Films
I’m an unabashed James Bond fan. Any entertainment to last 50 years is pretty special, and 23 films is quite a milestone for UK movies.
I’ve been revisiting them thanks to the James Bonding podcast, and it started making me think about how Themed Entertainment is like James Bond films.
