The DVD medium is redefining the way consumers receive entertainment and information, transforming what was once passive viewing into a highly interactive user-defined custom experience. An original concert performance/instructional DVD title was developed to present a sample of the medium's versatility and to explore potential entertainment, instructional, and promotional applications. The creative thesis project entitled “Swing Into DVD” pushes the limits of the DVD specification, featuring multiple angles, different versions of the show, bonus features, and interactive dance instruction. This thesis study provides an in-depth overview of the production process involved in creating the disc, ultimately focusing on the diverse skills in audio, video, and computer programming required to create a viable DVD title. Through an evaluation process based on survey results, “Swing Into DVD” is considered successful as an entertaining instructional tool used for the promotion of swing music.
