Part of what we’re doing in this class is not only thinking through transmedia narratives, but also becoming comfortable with the idea that low-fidelity prototyping is a useful creative and research tool.
Good reasons to do it
- full on prototyping takes time, skills, and $$
- you can simulate your later prototype and evaluate and imaginatively deploy
- it’s an entry point for you and for collaborators who don’t know (yet) how to code/build/design etc.
- don’t think too long – build it and see
- build it in a couple of different ways
- be open to possibilities that you didn’t envision initially
Note that while we are looking at Lo-Fi here, that doesn’t mean this should be easy.
