Undergraduate Program | T452:Topical Seminar in Design & Production


Topic: Trans Media Storytelling
Instructors: Co-taught by Robby Benson & Susan Kelly
Tuesdays 9.00 – 12.00 and Lab Fridays 9.00 – 12.00

Description: The vision for Trans Media Storytelling is to transcend the traditional disciplinary boundaries that often function to separate creative resources at the university.  Our intent for this inaugural year-long media production class is to tell one story across multiple media forms. 

The Trans Media class imagines to integrate as many disciplines and skill-sets as possible.  The media we will incorporate in this creative collaboration will emerge from the original source material (a short story or novella) which will then be adapted and realized in the following media forms and platforms:

  • the original short story or novella
  • published as in interactive book for a tablet
  • adapted into a screenplay
  • adapted into short film
  • adapted into a 3D film
  • adapted into an app for a tablet or smart phone
  • adapted into a game 
  • adapted into an animated short
  • adapted into dance
  • adapted into a stage play
  • adapted into a musical

Graduate and under graduate students from all disciplines are encouraged to apply for specific production team roles.

We anticipate a core group of Graduate Students will be accountable for taking the creative lead on each media element.  Both Graduate and Undergraduate students will comprise the creative teams the graduate students will lead to realize the final vision. The completed project will be presented at the IU Cinema in spring 2015.

Please indicate which team, and which position on that team, you are best qualified to hold.
