The Use of Badness: Extratextuality in Bad Movies and Citationality in the Realist Aesthetic by Trey Lykins( )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Evaluating bad movies "bad" underscores the implicit assumption that movies should be aesthetically realistic. Their impossible-to-ignore failures to reproduce the codes of cinematic realism encourage attention to the extratextual elements of a film which helps viewers activate the entire film. Working from within the realist aesthetic demands a theoretical reformulation of realism instead of just simply expressing a formal, theoretical critique. To this end, the existing discourse on citationality as received from J.L. Austin and Jacques Derrida is a useful model for how bad movies attempt but fail to repeat iterable models of the real. By couching realism in the terms of an iterable discourse, we can follow Fredric Jameson's belief that the problems of realism are more epistemological than aesthetic, and this allows us to reengage classical realist film theory, such as the works of Andre Bazin and Siegfried Kracauer, in a productive way
Future of story: Transmedia journalism and National Geographic's Future of Food project by Kevin Timothy Moloney( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Analysis shows that though the Future of Food project was designed independently of existing concepts of transmedia storytelling, it mirrors those concepts well. The project builds a complex storyworld, expands content across media and seeks to engage diverse audiences. However, the scale of the storyworld arguably complicates engagement by defying mastery by committed readers. Network analysis also shows that the project maintains much of the broadcast orientation of legacy journalism despite the more complex engagement found with its interactive channels
