Transmedia Storytelling Series: Lucile Chaufour
Monday, 26 November 2012 from 2:30 PM to 5:30 PM
The transmedia Storytelling Series will introduce three extraordinary transmedia artists from France to Toronto audiences.
Initiated by the Consulate General of France in Toronto (cultural services), and in partnership with the Film Dept., York University, the Transmedia Storytelling series seeks to establish a dialogue between France and the Toronto sector in digital innovation by studying interactive cross-platform storytelling techniques through the examples of French creatives’ works. Over the last decade, there have been dramatic changes for on-screen content as a result of the digital revolution and the emergence of new platforms. Both French and Canadian artists have experienced this evolution and developed new approaches in this field. We warmly welcome students, transmedia practitioners and the general public interested in transmedia storytelling practices to join us at these free events!
Please join us for our second exciting speaker!

Rosa is a new transmedia project by Lucile Chaufour. She will focus on representations of femininity and explore the history of computing by expanding the narrative of her film on several vectors: a feature-length science fiction film, an exhibition, several websites and a series of short films...

Our final speaker of the series is Eric Viennot who will present at the end of January, 2013. M. Viennot is with Lexis Numérique Studios, and is the creator of the transmedia video games In Memoriam and Alt-Minds

The first speaker in our series was Bruno Masi, who spoke in October.
Bruno Masi, the co-creator, along with photographer Guillaume Herbaut, of the transmedia project La Zone, dedicated to life around Chernobyl, tells about the journey of this project that is at the crossroads of journalism, publishing, and contemporary art, by way of an installation at La Gaîté lyrique in Paris. “La Zone” won top honours at the third annual FRANCE 24-RFI web documentary competition in Paris.

April 25-28, 2013 York University, Toronto, Canada
HASTAC ("haystack") is a network of individuals and institutions inspired by the possibilities that new technologies offer us for shaping how we learn, teach, communicate, create, and organize our local and global communities. We are motivated by the conviction that the digital era provides rich opportunities for informal and formal learning and for collaborative, networked research that extends across traditional disciplines, across the boundaries of academe and community, across the "two cultures" of humanism and technology, across the divide of thinking versus making, and across social strata and national borders.
