In Deliverable 7.4 – TransMedia Show-Case Creation, we introduce the aims of the V-MusT.net consortium for exploring the potential for a transmedia approach in the development of Virtual Museum (VM) applications. This deliverable will be updated at M44, at the beginning of Keys To Rome.
Beginning with a brief introduction to the concept of transmedia, including a review of definitions created by leading experts in the field of transmedia storytelling production, this deliverable will explore how existing VM applications within the consortium partners have already been developed for a variety of media platforms, representing our first attempts at creating transmedia projects. Building from the existing transmedia applications and looking towards the development of the Next Generation Virtual Museum Event, this deliverable will propose different possibilities for enriching the event with transmedia content presented across a range of media platforms.
Some case studies will be presented in order to put in light some main features of transmediality we came across when conducting UX evaluation. We will able at the end of this document to suggest some main characteristics, which turn to be fundamental and essential when designing virtual museum applications with a multi-level content and supposing to run on multi-platforms.
