Transmedia Storytelling was easily one of my favorite classes this semester, perhaps even one of my favorite Trinity classes I’ve taken so far (It’s a tossup between any of Delwiche’s classes) and I’m greatly saddened that I have to leave it behind already. One of my favorite things about this class was that it introduced me to a wide variety of new and unique texts that I would have otherwise never had the pleasure of consuming such as Dr. Who, Mulholland Drive, Unwritten, Unwritten, and Firefly. Each of these texts profoundly altered my views on what constitutes a story and the limitless ways in which they can be constructed and told. I also greatly appreciated Dr. Delwiche’s efforts to promote our own creative abilities by allowing us to generate our own stories through various mediums throughout the course of the semester.
Overall, I absolutely loved this class and believe it really expanded my outlook on the concept of a narrative as well as how its traditional limitations can be transcended through multiple mediums to take on new and complex meanings.
