Éistigí - Picteilín Joint Conference 2018

15 May 2018

The Creative Arts Research Centre will host the 2018 Éistigí - Picteilín joint conference on Thursday 17th of May

The event combines and builds upon the previous Music Research Colloquiums and Picteilín Creative Media and Game Studies conference, to cover a broad remit of interdisciplinary research in the creative arts and related areas. We would be delighted to welcome you to the papers and presentations in the Carroll Building, Dundalk Institute of Technology. Sessions engage with performance in Ireland, film and games, production and aesthetics, media and society, musicology, and teaching and learning. The day will conclude with a book launch by Centre member Dr Kelly McErlean, whose book Interactive Narratives and Transmedia Storytelling: Creating Immersive Stories was recently published by Taylor and Francis.

Interactive Narratives and Transmedia Storytelling provides media students and industry professionals with strategies for creating innovative new media projects across a variety of platforms. Synthesizing ideas from a range of theorists and practitioners across visual, audio, and interactive media, Kelly McErlean offers a practical reference guide and toolkit to best practices, techniques, key historical and theoretical concepts, and terminology that media storytellers and creatives need to create compelling interactive and transmedia narratives.

McErlean takes a broad lens, exploring traditional narrative, virtual reality and augmented reality, audience interpretation, sound design, montage, the business of transmedia storytelling, and much more. Written for both experienced media practitioners and those looking for a reference to help bolster their creative toolkit or learn how to better craft multiplatform stories, Interactive Narratives and Transmedia Storytelling serves as a guide to navigating this evolving world.
