StarshipC3.com 2001-3 Wayback Machine Archives – Lost Transmedia History
March 8, 2011 Leave a comment
Ive used the Wayback Machine to find the remnants of the STARSHIPC3.com site from 2001. It was a pure ONLINE TRANSMEDIA template for it’s time. Before any RSS driven linkage of “social sites” . It premiered a web machinima 3d animated pilot that was supplemented by comic art(since i didnt have the budget to continue the 3d animations) Viewers could then enter a 3d avatar virtual world AS the main 4 characters and interract in the next story phase. It also had a 3d shooter game based on the story world., as well as message boards, an ebook tech bible etc. The links to the advanced media elements are now lost, but one can find them at difffernt locations on the web and at starbasec3.com. And most of the “technologies” that drove the games /3d animations etc are long gone. Which should be a lesson to creatives online, thatthe tech companies arent in buisness for you as customers;) and that online media- your work- is not being designed by the tech companies business models to “last”. Forget LONGTAILS, “they” arent being designed for by your tool makers.. unhappy? then make it change;)!
Anyhow- enjoy the peak at 2001 or so- – and “transmedia” online before it had the snazy name.;)
Iv’e also linked the first chapter of “FIRST STEPS” which was meant to be the “story novel” of the transmedia IP. There was a full pitch doc for the novel/online universe that Im looking to find — if I can get one ill post it, I lost alot of older files in a move this year.
