Video from the April Transmedia Conference. Panel videos featuring Jane Espenson discussing ""It's About Time!" Structuring Transmedia Narratives" and Stephen DeKnight discussing: "Game On!: Intelligent Designs or Fan Aggregators?"

General link to all conference videos is here.

This is a really interesting panel, well worth the time (about an hour and 20 minutes). Of course I was particularly interested in Jane Espenson comparing the differences in the writing/the writers' room between BtVS and BSG.
@embers - Care to summarize Jane's comments on that score?
I didn't take notes, but she was talking about how on BSG the direction of the show was taking was very collaborative, so that different writers could really effect character arcs, while BtVS was very much Joss' vision/voice. She said that when she worked for Joss, she felt that that was the very best way to run a show: with a clear story told in a consistent voice, but then when working on BSG she could appreciate the other way of working too.

I found the question at 1:07, they were asking about how the last cylon was chosen.
"I didn't take notes, but she was talking about how on BSG the direction of the show was taking was very collaborative, so that different writers could really effect character arcs..."

I admire the BSG writers, Moore in particular, for the sheer variety of excuses they've been able to come up with for that show's miserable incoherence. :)
Incoherence? That show is anything but incoherent. They've tied up all loose ends and created an epic and wonderful story.
Yeah, there's nothing especially incoherent about BSG.
Coherence is in the minds of the beholder?

FWIW, I didn't think it was especially incoherent. Well, not any more than some of the stuff out there. :)
