Scott Pilgrim/Transmediation Happy Hour

Thanks to Brendan Gillett for an awesome happy hour earlier this month.
Here (finally) is a mini glimpse at what happened! Make sure to come to our next (media commodification of winter holiday themed?) happy hour, date TBA in December…

On Friday, Nov. 7, MASCLab hosted a happy hour workshop on Transmedial Narrative and Simultaneous Multiliteracy. Using the many iterations of Scott Pilgrim as a prime example while drawing on the experiences of those in the room, presenter Brendan Gillett led a discussion on what it means to read across mediums and read for many media conventions in a single work of art. Participants were invited to put theory into practice, creating their own original works using a short clip from Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World, the movie, leading to comic strips, portraits, word clouds, and a short abstract video piece. Q&A followed, and delicious food and drink were on hand throughout.

Some selected slides and images from Brendan’s Presentation:

Then we all transmediated this scene from the Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World Movie:


Here are some of the things we came up with in about fifteen minutes:
