After Digital Storytelling: Video Composing in the New Media Age


Computers and Composition Volume 29, Number 1, ISSN 8755-4615 Publisher: Elsevier Ltd


This paper considers the composing processes for novice moviemakers and the disciplinary, pedagogical, and epistemological ramifications of these by using two student case studies. The current model of video composing as a sequential series of temporally discrete steps, made famous by the Center for Digital Storytelling, is predicated on the logic of old media and, thus, may no longer be sufficient to account for the new media composing processes that emerge with new media interfaces. In place of a linear and sequential process of video composing, we suggest expanding the predominant model to account for a simultaneous, multiply-recursive process that involves the semiotic channels of image, sound, and word.
