Crowdsourcing: Harnessing the Collective

Toronto based Transmedia consultant Anthea Foyer delivers an insightful session that delves into the current trend of crowd-sourcing, with focus on crowd-creation, crowd funding and co-created projects. Although this collective means of sourcing information and creative material has been around for a long time, the trend has picked up over the past year with more transmedia projects being funded via platforms like IndieGogo and Kickstarter than ever before. She examines why there’s been a sudden acceleration of interest, and deliberates on their successes, advantages and potential pitfalls. Followed by “Live” Case studies: Time Tribe by Lucas Johnson (Silverstring Media), Clockwork Watch by Yomi Ayeni (Expanding Universe)
