For my project, I’m not exactly trying to say “How many ways can we tell this story?” My concept is about how a text can come to life off of the printed page and become much more than just the physical book through different types of media. I’m wanting to include clips from the video games, as those are also interactive, as well as a short clip of the book itself.
I was thinking of using a song from a “wrock” group called Ministry of Magic, since almost all of their music is electronic and generated on the computer, except the vocals. It’s a really neat juxtaposition that would work, I think, with the video. I do like the idea of narrating it though; I’d have to work on my narrator voice!
For the video itself, I’m hoping to start with the printed book, then progress to the e-book, then Pottermore, then onto the fan-generated content, to hopefully show the evolution of the story through new media and the different ways that it can come to life outside of the book.
