Washington, DC (PRWEB) June 08, 2011
Digital Media Wire today announced that it is hosting two exclusive media workshops on Gamification and Transmedia in Washington, DC on June 16, 2011.
The workshops, which sold out in Los Angeles in April, are 4 hour power-sessions in applying the latest media and marketing techniques for websites, media properties and brands. The Transmedia workshop, which focuses on how to build your media brand across multiple platforms, is taught by Jeff Gomez, CEO of Starlight Runner Entertainment, one of the top companies working in the transmedia space having worked on such blockbuster hits as Disney's Pirates of the Caribbean and Tron Legacy, James Cameron's Avatar, Microsoft's Halo, Hasbro’s Transformers, Mattel’s Hot Wheels and Coca-Cola's Happiness Factory. The Gamification workshop which focuses on how to gamify your web properties is taught by two leading companies in the space, Bunchball and Badgeville.
The Gamification workshop http://www.digitalmediawire.com/workshops/gamification/ is focused on how some of the world’s leading media companies and brands - such as NBC, Warner Bros., Hasbro, UBM, Comcast, and ABC – are very successfully using fundamental human engagement techniques, used in the game industry, such as reward, status, achievement, competition and self-expression in their media and marketing mix.
The Transmedia workshop http://www.digitalmediawire.com/workshops/transmedia/ focuses on how to develop transmedia content (across several mediums like games, mobile, television and film). It is the first of its kind and unique in the world, delivering practical, how-to transmedia training led by leading cross-platform producer and strategist Jeff Gomez. He will teach his signature transmedia development process to business executives, content producers and marketers which has been used for such blockbusters as Disney's Pirates of the Caribbean and Tron Legacy, James Cameron's Avatar, Microsoft's Halo, Hasbro’s Transformers, Mattel’s Hot Wheels and Coca-Cola's Happiness Factory.
Each workshop is restricted to a maximum of 30 attendees for maximum efficiency.
