Experimental Transmedia Film “The Cosmonaut” Tests New Distribution Methods | Intro to Literature | Scoop.it

Desdemona Bandini:  "Not just a new film, “The Cosmonaut” is a labor of love four years in the making, crowdsourced and created with a plan to test the boundaries of transmedia content distribution worldwide."

Deanya Lattimore Schempp's insight:

Great new possible processes of being a contemporary playwright are explored in this project; with the script available online (although not through this link, beware), this might make an interesting "play" to study, if the students had not said that _Hamlet_ was such a boon...  :)

How Big Data Is Rewriting Hollywood Scripts | Intro to Literature | Scoop.it

"For as much as $20,000 per script, Mr. Bruzzese and a team of analysts compare the story structure and genre of a draft script with those of released movies, looking for clues to box-office success."

 

"'Demons in horror movies can target people or be summoned,' Mr. Bruzzese said in a gravelly voice, by way of example. 'If it’s a targeting demon, you are likely to have much higher opening-weekend sales than if it’s summoned. So get rid of that Ouija Board scene.'"
