The year has started briskly with a number of articles talking about 2014 as the year of the tipping point. Finally the audience is in place (granted, it has probably been in place for quite some time already) but even more crucially, the entertainment industry is poised to take advantage of this, by moving into the creation of story worlds and franchises in an even bigger way than before.
Simon Staffans, our content developer at MediaCity Finland, does his annual retrospective on what the year 2013 has been in the field of transmedia. The publication "One Year in Now Media 2013 Edition" is based on his blog writes from this year.
Simon Staffans is a content developer at MediaCity and he is a busy man.
