Transmedia and multi-modal books

Interesting in the context of mult-imodal Bookworks for HCC1, and transmedia books today, is Frank Rose’s book The art of Immersion is full of useful insights [Rose, F. (2012). The art of Immersion: how the digital generation Is remaking Hollywood, Madison Avenue, and the way we tell stories. New York, NY: W. W. Norton & Company.]

Last lecture on Transmedia and social media by Anna Jackson was excellent. Here is a link to the Prezi. for those of you who missed the presentation or who want to go back to it.

Anna Jackson’s lecture (captured on iphone on gorilla tripod) – is under Resources on AUTonline.

Another link: Geraldine Peters intro to bogging prezi at

Also captured with iphone are a number of vids of paper-engineering and bookbinding tutorials

so useful for recording lectures demos etc.

Students start leave traces of using the ipad installed in studio

In ibooks see the first student trials of their Interactive pdf or epub on the studio ipad

Thanks CFlaT (Jin,Victorio, and team) for videoing 130+ student presentations of their hardcopy bookworks. Students beautifully designed and imaginative 21st Century bookworks will be on display in the glass cabinets in WE from late November over the summer break and into mid-March.  Digital versions designed for ipads/iphones are due in on November 5 and we can hopefully display those in a digital library too so the contents can be read. Very impressive work for first year Design students.
