Transmedia Storytelling in Television: A Student Thesis

One of the pleasures of working with Middlebury College students is advising independent work on their senior projects. While I don’t have the opportunity to work with graduate students on their dissertations, every once in awhile I have undergraduate students who do exemplary work that feels quite similar to a condensed version of the graduate thesis project. Typically they do great work, but the end result remains dormant, at best being read by a random browser in the Middlebury library. ... read more »

Tuesday Links

I’ve been out of the loop for the last few days thanks to a wonderful long weekend with Andrea in Atlanta, which included a Braves-Sox game, tours of the CNN Center and Coke Museum, and a sentimental trip to some favorite restaurants and hangouts.  If you’re ever in Atlanta, the CNN tour is probably worth checking out, although I was a little disappointed by its relative brevity.  Still, spotting Ali Velshi working the newsroom on his way to the anchor’s desk was sort of fun.  I’ve got a couple ... read more »

Wednesday Links

A lot of offline activity at the home office of The Chutry Experiment this week, so many of these links are probably old news for some readers.  Still, as I mentioned in my previous post, blogging links helps me to think through ideas for longer projects.  Hopefully I’ll be a more diligent blogger soon. ... read more »
