Changed context and new dimensions are the hallmark of today’s digital age, and every online storyteller must master them. Ezra Eeman, head of EBU Digital, demonstrated the eight dimensions of this new media landscape with his eight-year-old daughter, browsing YouTube clips on the family iPad.
Why It Matters
Eeman’s daughter, Haru, is half Japanese and half Belgian, schooled in English and French and raised in Dutch — and therefore a critical representation of the new ultra-diverse digital world that does not fit neatly into audience categories. Haru’s time spent watching videos on an iPad completely encapsulated the full-stack experience of the eight important dimensions that every digital storyteller must be aware of.
