Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Digital storytelling is at the heart of new digital media and the ability to tell stories in various formats for multiple platforms is becoming increasingly important. The drive today is towards creating immersive and interactive digital stories for a diversity of services and applications, spanning from pure entertainment through art, edutainment and training towards digital signage and advertising. Immersive media explores the convergence of art, media and technology. The objective of this Special Issue to present the state-of-the-art in immersive media, share experiences of a cross disciplinary approach to understand how the real becomes unreal and the unreal becomes reals, explore new exciting application areas, and introduce new research challenges and opportunities for reaching the ultimate goal of having new immersive media able to provide us all with a sense of being there.

Title: Multimedia Storytelling in Journalism
Kobie van Krieken 
Radboud University Nijmegen, The Netherlands
News stories aim to create an immersive reading experience by virtually transporting the audience to the described scenes. In print journalism, this experience is facilitated by text-linguistic story characteristics such as a chronological event structure, point-of-view writing, present tense verbs, and speech and thought reports. The present study examines how these characteristics are translated into journalistic multimedia stories and explores how the distinctive features of text, image, video, and graphic animations are exploited to immerse the audience in otherwise distant news events.
