Final Project Proposal
So my proposal is basically what I discussed in class last week. I want to do a video project starting with a recreation of the 5 1/2 minute hallway and expanding from there. I'm thinking I might structure it as another layer of narrative like Zampano and Johnny. I want to explore the book's use of echo and space by manipulating the sound and visuals in the video. There are already a bunch of videos on YouTube that try to adapt House of Leaves, and I'll post a few of them later on. They're an ok starting point, but I want to go beyond adaptation by elaborating on some of the symbols in the book and extending the narrative.
