05 July 2018

Dr. Kelly McErlean, lecturer in the Department of Creative Arts, Media and Music at DkIT, recently launched his book 'Interactive Narratives and Transmedia Storytelling: Creating Immersive Stories' at Hodges Figgis Bookshop, Dublin, on 27th June 2018.

'Interactive Narratives and Transmedia Storytelling' provides media students and industry professionals with strategies for creating innovative new media projects across a variety of platforms. Synthesising ideas from a range of theorists and practitioners across visual, audio and interactive media, Dr. McErlean offers a practical reference guide and toolkit to best practices, techniques, key historical and theoretical concepts, as well as 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 to better craft multiplatform stories, 'Interactive Narratives and Transmedia Storytelling' serves as a guide to navigating this evolving world.

Dr. McErlean was joined on the night by guest speaker Dr. Paul O'Brien from NCAD.

Dr. Kelly McErlean is the programme director for the BA (Hons) in Communications in Creative Media, School of Informatics and Creative Arts, at Dundalk Institute of Technology. He brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise to DkIT students with particular areas of expertise in interactive media, film, photography and research.
