From film to DVD-Rom. I'm probably bringing on a world of pain by doing this, but I've decided to pursue the tourism in China film project as a multi-media ethnography. It seems that doing it as a film requires cutting too much away. And, as the project is against the very idea of narrative closure, DVD-Rom offers more possibilities in relation to presenting multi-faceted, multi-layered, collaborative ethnography. Now I just have to learn Macromedia programming to make it happen ... ugh.
At least I have model to go by: I'm really interested in the Labyrinth Project's use of DVD-Rom for what they call "database and ethnographic" novels. I have a review in the works about one of their projects, "Bleeding Through: Layers of Los Angeles, 1920-1986".
