I've been trying to figure out exactly what I've wanted to write on since last Thursday. After our in depth discussion of the events on pages 193-205 in House of Leaves I thought that I wanted to somehow relate film with House of Leaves. In particular, I want do a critical paper that looks at eye witness to history videos (ie Zapruder film), how these videos are studied and how Danielewski attempts to recreate this in the most dramatic moments of House of Leaves. I have a feeling that once I start writing, there will be more information on the Zapruder film and how it is tied to House of Leaves than anything else, but I think that by discussing how it is analyzed could also draw some interesting parallels to how the scene starting on 194 can be analyzed.
The one difficulty I am finding is in developing a thesis for this. It will probably come easier once I actually get a little more into writing the paper, but I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions. Thoughts on either on the more general topic, or on a potential thesis would be much appreciated.
