Discussion Questions

Narrative Across Media

Narrative Strategies

- I see a problem with this strategy. Is this strategy beneficial to the author, because if you look at one piece of the entire collection, you could get an entirely different interpretation from the one piece than what the author intended. In turn when the piece is put back into the collection, you then get another different interpretation of it. 

     - example: when you see a movie preview, you get the best parts of the movie and assume it is one type of movie, however when you actually go see the movie it is not what you expected. This can result in                                     disappointment or maybe even satisfaction. 


- What is the difference between a comic book and graphic novel?

- What makes a painting or another piece of art have narrativity? (pg. 151)  Aren't there some works that cannot have narrativity? (pg. 150 post-renaissance works are more "pregnant moments") (pg. 154 a painting needs cohesion and realism) (pg. 155 In books, a repeated character creates narrativity, however in paintings it can be seen as a design. At what point can we determine if a painting has a repeated design or a pictorial narrative?)


- I think you need prior knowledge or experience in order to understand most if not all pictorial or visual narratives to find the correct interpretation.


- What role does pictorial narrative play now? Is it dying due to everything becoming digital or animated?


- Does a piece of work with pictorial narrative have to be prestigious, as in Van Gogh, or can I create a piece of work to be considered a pictorial narrative?

I changed the narrative from third person to first person. I also added more to the story, and tried to add some emotion to it. I also added more pictures and videos.

I do not have a before or after, because my original was mostly complete. However, I did put it in a slideshow and added a warning about graphic content.


Sound -

I made drastic changes to my sound object. My original one was very disorganized and did not have the feel of a remix with the repeats etc. I only used to songs to make my remix and alternated them several times, I also placed instrumental music in the background to make it cohesive. 


Moving Image -

          after - http://youtu.be/piil5B3Sez8


The before moving image was too short, contained awful audio quality, and was emotionless. My second attempt, now fits time constraints, and has better audio. I also changed the video to be more of a conversation with emotion, rather than the original fact style.
