Remix or Rewrite: Star Wars Fans in the Digital Era

Last week, I had a chance to be on a panel with some fantastic folks, facilitated by Sue Biely. It was a lively discussion about what is happening Ôout there’ on the web as new technologies catapult media makers into a whole new world of thinking about their creative product. The panel discussed their own experiences, case studies and look at how different franchises have tapped in to new digital cultures and tools to benefit their conventional media brands. Kris Krug, President of Raincity StudiosJeff McPherson, Creator Tiki Bar TVSteve Bocska, President of Pug Pharm ProductionsHenry Jenkins, Director of the MIT Comparative Media Studies ProgramI talked about Star Wars and how it is impacted by Fan Culture. Star Wars is literally an encyclopedia of all of the examples of fan culture.
