In the above YouTube clip I have demonstrated the topic Trans media by using illustrations from a children’s book called Just Shocking, written by Andy Griffiths and illustrated by Terry Denton. According to ‘A Think Lab, 2011’ Trans Media is “storytelling across multiple media platforms… it contributes to a larger narrative and adds richness and detail to the story world. It allows the audience to become actively involved.” In the clip, the different pages represent the variety of media platforms one story can be spread across. The cartoon demonstrates that to understand the whole story the audience needs to determine each element to truly comprehend the big picture. It also shows that without each media platform (page) the end result would be confusing and the concept wouldn’t be fully grasped. The cartoon adds humour and can be seen as representing the concept of trans media.
