Cross-Media Researchers 2: Andrew McKenzie

This is the second post in a series of posts about new cross-media researchers. Introducing…

Andrew McKenzie, PhD candidate, Creative Media, RMIT University, Melbourne, Australia

Here is his description, from a listserv conversation:

My research is into areas of narrative structure and content creation. For my PHD I’m going to be devising theories surrounding the way that narrative and content must adapt for 3g Mobile Video technology. I’m using my thesis screenplay from my MA in Creative Writing as a foundation and template to producing content for Mobile Video.

As a case study I intend to examine Douglas Adams Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy series in various forms including radio plays, novel, computer games, stage play, television series, and feature film and devise theories surrounding the relationship of character to narrative and exposition.

Andrew will be changing his website to be a blog soon. I look forward to catching up with him when he’s in Melbourne, and discussing narrative & cross-media. Yay!
