“The New Adventures of Peter and Wendy” is a modern-day update of J.M. Barrie’s classic “Peter Pan.” As Transmedia Producer for the series, it’s my responsibility to play all of the characters online, and to work closely with the show’s writer and producers to weave an integrated cross-platform narrative. We also have a vibrant community of fans who create roleplay Twitter accounts for their own characters that live in Neverland, Ohio, the fictional town in which the series is set. Part of my job is to shepherd that roleplay community and integrate them into the “New Peter and Wendy” story world. Here’s a link to our in-world transmedia hub, the website for Neverland’s local newspaper, The Kensington Chronicle.
We won the 2015 International Academy of Web Television Award for Best Transmedia Experience for our first season, and season 2 wrapped up at the beginning of September, 2015. The above video is the “For Your Consideration” video we created when we submitted the series for 2015 IAWTV Awards Best Transmedia Experience category.
