Der Cliffhanger Und Die Serielle Narration

by Vincent Fröhlich, release date 2015-04-30, Der Cliffhanger Und Die Serielle Narration Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Der Cliffhanger Und Die Serielle Narration books, Der Cliffhanger, also die Erzähltechnik, in einem spannenden Moment eine serielle Erzählung zu unterbrechen, steht im Zentrum dieser Studie. Vincent Fröhlichs Analysen reichen von »1001 Nacht« über viktorianische Fortsetzungsromane, französische Feuilletonromane, Kinoserien, Radio-Seifenopern, neue TV-Serien bis hin zu E-Books, Games und Webserien. Das Buch bietet nicht nur eine überfällige historische Perspektive auf den Cliffhanger, die serielle Narration und deren Entstehungsbedingungen, sondern arbeitet zudem heraus, wie reich die Formen und wie vielseitig die Charakteristika dieser Forschungsgegenstände sind und wie sehr bisher ihr kultureller und narrativer Stellenwert unterschätzt wurde.

Television And Serial Adaptation

by Shannon Wells-Lassagne, release date 2017-01-20, Television And Serial Adaptation Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Television And Serial Adaptation books, As American television continues to garner considerable esteem, rivalling the seventh art in its "cinematic" aesthetics and the complexity of its narratives, one aspect of its development has been relatively unexamined. While film has long acknowledged its tendency to adapt, an ability that contributed to its status as narrative art (capable of translating canonical texts onto the screen), television adaptations have seemingly been relegated to the miniseries or classic serial. From remakes and reboots to transmedia storytelling, loose adaptations or adaptations which last but a single episode, the recycling of pre-existing narrative is a practice that is just as common in television as in film, and this text seeks to rectify that oversight, examining series from M*A*S*H to Game of Thrones, Pride and Prejudice to Castle.

The Age Of Netflix

by Cory Barker, release date 2017-09-12, The Age Of Netflix Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download The Age Of Netflix books,  In 2016, Netflix—with an already enormous footprint in the United States—expanded its online streaming video service to 130 new countries, adding more than 12 million subscribers in nine months and bringing its total to 87 million. The effectiveness of Netflix’s content management lies in its ability to appeal to a vastly disparate global viewership without a unified cache of content. Instead, the company invests in buying or developing myriad programming and uses sophisticated algorithms to “narrowcast” to micro-targeted audience groups. In this collection of new essays, contributors explore how Netflix has become a cultural institution and transformed the way we consume popular media.
