Multiplatform Storytelling is essentially creative content production for an evolving, three-dimensional media space. Unlike a ‘traditional’ narrative, multiplatform stories typically evolve on one platform (film, television, web series, etc.) and can extend to secondary and tertiary platforms (YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, TikTok, Quibi etc.) to augment creative delivery of the narrative. Enhanced engagement afforded in these platforms can provide the audience greater agency in terms of how they can interact with the storytelling experience.
Sample Career Titles
Film and Multiplatform Storytelling (FMST) professors are forward-thinking educators with a broad range of expertise and insight in this fast-emerging discipline of media creation. Program co-ordinator Orest Sushko spent several years in Hollywood mixing soundtracks for feature films and working with a broad range of directors including David Cronenberg and Guillermo Del Toro. His work has garnered an Emmy Award and multiple nominations. The exceptional team of professors in the program also includes Eva Ziemsen, Shannon Vieira, Aram Collier and Neil van der King.
Humber’s program features cutting-edge content authored by industry professionals who have produced work in a variety of fields, all of which exist beneath the multiplatform storytelling umbrella (filmmaking, gaming, screenwriting, etc.). Further, its unique configuration encourages students to collaborate and interact with one another so as to develop an original idea in the first semester that will be put into production during the second.
Ontario is emerging as an important hub for media production, with Toronto’s film and television cluster now ranking third in North America.
