Meet the Jammers!
Transmedia SF and Producers Guild of America Present:
The Stars of the 1st Transmedia Jam
DRINKS, FOOD, NETWORKING AND PRESENTATIONS
Join us for an evening of presentations from our first Transmedia Jam weekend event.
If you've ever wanted to attend a hackathon/createathon weekend, but weren't sure what to expect, this is an event for you: We bring back our judges and the stars of our first Transmedia Jam to share with our community the good, the bad and the ugly of what it takes to make a transmedia project in under 30 hours!
Hear from our esteemed Judges about the review process and what they looked for in their selections. And a special presentation will also be made by the overall winner of the Transemdia Jam - and even we won't know who that is until just before the event begins ;-)
About the Transmedia Jam: The inaugural Transmedia Jam is a weekend event on July 20th-21nd, that encourage and inspires all jammers to play with media, platforms and new ways of storytelling.
In the spirit of Game Jams, Hackathons and the CineSport project, the Transmedia Jam will bring together storytellers of all stripes to create new transmedia projects from start and finish in the same weekend.

After gaining a wealth of technical knowledge and over a decade of digital media experience launching the media infrastructure of companies such as Mazingo Networks and Tranz-Send Broadcasting Company, Jason founded Fordela with the vision of creating an intuitive, scalable and cost-effective rich media management solution which could be offered as a cloud-based service. While pioneering the company into a space where dealing with all media is seamlessly and intuitively integrated into both enterprise infrastructure and commerce, Jason Deadrich also acts as a local industry leader, allowing his technical knowledge to be tapped as a community resource as he speaks at college campuses and technological conventions, and teaches students from the San Francisco Academy of Art.

When & Where
Transmedia SF is a network of SF Bay Area media and start-up creatives who come together to develop our own projects, to promote and educate the world about transmedia storytelling, and to make San Francisco a center for transmedia production and education. San Francisco is a natural hub for transmedia since it boasts robust creative, technical, media and education communities. Our vision is to create the SF ASIS – San Francisco Agency, Studio, Incubator, Salon – that brings together media, ad and PR agencies, creative content development teams, tech and media start-ups, and educators and transmedia visionaries to jointly promote transmedia and SF as a core center for transmedia developments.
