time on the bbc stories project is up, report is written, academic viva viva’d.
couldn’t help myself but use hitchhiker’s guide to the galaxy as the example of a property crossing media. there’s a kick-ass letter douglas adams wrote to some film executive when hhg2g was in development hell that starts to open up just how different the approach and result of the different adaptions should be. however quoting it (i’m sure i read it in the salmon of doubt) would have been an indulgence too far for a 10minute whip-through, so here is me venting that one.
its a good presentation, both an interesting topic and nice slide deck, i hope to get it recorded to go with the pdfs of report and whatnot i have made and put up as a tobyz.net project page: project/bbcstories.
