Daryoosh Hayati

Abstract—According to the underlying Marxist view, "economy is the base". The existence of storytelling as a source of entertainment for children is being influenced by a wide range of entertainments provided by digital media, and cyber space as a result of new economic and marketing systems. However the new technologies as the outcomes of new socioeconomic methods have been used to revive the storytelling tradition by the application of transmedia strategy which presents the opportunity to create deeper, stronger, and more varied connections between story universes and audiences, or in other words the virtual costumers. Transmedia strategy as a narrative storytelling uses different media and cyber space as platforms to advance the story and to create ever-larger fictional worlds of events and characters who become role models. As a result to facilitate the trend of promoting transmedia storytelling, this essay would introduce its concept as well as discussing how transmedia storytelling is formed in addition to delving for its socio-economical, educational and psychological advantages and causes to name a few.

Index Terms—Transmedia, narrative storytelling, Web 2.0 connections, and Blockbusters.
