Cross-media Communications are integrated, interactive experiences that occur across multiple media, with multiple authors and have multiple styles.

We could trace a main opposition between crossmedia and transmedia storytelling: The first one would spread core content across complementary media and the second would articulate original narrative universe on different media (Tv, internet, radio, mobile, print, tablet, etc.), which bring new and complementary perspectives on the universe characterizing multiple entry points into the story
"a story [that] unfolds across multiple media platforms,
with each new text making a distinctive and valuable contribution to the whole.

Engagement is a comprehensive term that includes an emotional attachment, hence a psychologically favorable state of mind, and some forms of physical involvement

Building an experience
The narrative (script) is structured from the beginning having in mind the importance of leaving multiple entry points facilitating spreadability across platforms
When the experience is built from a given narrative
Media convergence both as Crossmedia production or Transmedia storytelling are not just a current reality, they are growing practices departing from Hollywood and touching peoples' everyday life
