Wk 9 – Activity – Transmedia Storytelling

I am working with a team of four, comprising of Kristine Nguyen, Judy Phan, Jacob Kim, and myself. The names of our characters go as followed, Belle Lea Bentley, Alexis Peterz, Kevin Kim and Ian Lac. The character I created is Ian Lac. He is a 25 year-old male and currently lives in Los Angeles, California. He is an aspiring skateboarder who travels to new cities, collecting footage of his progression on the board. His mission is to become a professional skateboarder, innovating that realm with new tricks and poetic style. His influence is the great Mark Gonzales who has been changing the skateboarding world since the early 80s. Ian met the three characters from above through his travels on his skateboarding trips. It was out in a local spot in LA where Ian met Belle. She was coming out of a local restaurant when he was skating by. As their paths met, Ian stopped and greeted her down the street. They have been friends ever since. Out on a trip in Seattle, Ian ran into Alexis during a tour of the Space Needle. Lastly, Ian met Kevin during a camping trip out in Utah. While all stay in different areas of the country, they all manage to stay in touch through social media. They all use Instagram and Snapchat to keep in touch. In a recent snapchat, Ian received a picture of Belle getting ready to enjoy a glass of wine for the night. Recently, Kevin posted a photo of a camping trip in Utah. It was near by where the two met. In addition, Alexis posted a photo of Seattle’s Space Needle next to the spot they met.
