We have come up with 3 options to go with for our project. These are the ideas we have in mind. Below you can read a really dense version of what we intend to do. We would really appreciate your opinions.
The Truman Show (1998)
A movie about an insurance salesman/adjuster discovers his entire life is actually a TV show. Quite often transmedia franchises are started with books, we have a different approach. The Truman Show is very popular, so this can be exploited to gain economic interest, but also to gain a Truman experience by users and let them really engage. We will make a franchise out of this project by making a TV Series, online and offline games, user generated content and merchandise products.
A chocolate bar which has been forgotten about by consumers. Though it is still very loved it has been pushed to the background. This brand can regain its previous consumers, but also new ones with our approach. Transmedia franchise can be formed by games, animations, apps, mobisodes, merchandise products and commercials.
This franchise may only seem to target a younger audience, however looking at our peer students we can conclude they are also attracted to games and commercials (think of the commercial by Coca Cola).
Books by Nicci French, main character: Frieda Klein
The books tell the story of Frieda Klein, a psychotherapist who discovers murder stories of her patients (either dreams or real life). It is a serie of 8 books. This can easily be formed into a franchise by adjusting it by creating TV Series, Spin off of the TV Series, Video games, movies, mobisodes/webisodes, merchandise products and children’s equipment.
