Re: [-empyre-] precursors
around the 14/10/05 giselle beiguelman mentioned about Re: [-empyre-]
and remember orson welles lessons. i think "citizen kane" and his
radiophonic version for "the war of the worlds" are landmarks for the
study of (new) media codes. don't you think so?
not wanting to disagree but I would have thought War of the Worlds is
an exemplar of a) mockumentary and so b) how mirroring codes of non
fiction within an (undeclared) fiction demonstrates the conventional
nature of non fiction codes. In new media I think things like Online
Caroline are exemplary for this, where simply substituting some
personal linguistic markers in an email proffers the illusion of an
authentic dialogue (something that form letters and mail scams have
known for some time).
So, a question, how is War of the Worlds a landmark for new media codes?
