Transmedia Example

While the multiplicity of various media platforms made available by the digital technology has caused anxiety about losing the ‘purity’ of cinema and cinematic image, the same revolution has allowed for various media platforms to come together and expand the scope of storytelling through combining various digital media forms.

The Resident Evil series is a good example to examine how trans-media narrative works in the age of convergence.This series was originally a video game and the success of the game led to the production of this film. While the game had different main characters the film relied on a female lead character.
