I'm beginning to think that the title of my THESIS, Transmedia Storytelling: Business, Aesthetics and Production at the Jim Henson Company, might be something of a misnomer. True, the entire middle third of the paper is dedicated to Labyrinth and The Dark Crystal and all their respective transmedia extensions, but the paper's index will also include references to:

  • Batman
  • Superman
  • Sandman
  • Hellboy
  • Clive Cussler and Dirk Pitt
  • Stephen King
  • Final Fantasy VII
  • Final Fantasy XIII
  • Dr. Who
  • Star Wars
  • Star Trek
  • Harry Potter
  • The Matrix
  • Lord of the Rings
  • The Bible
  • Stargate
  • Apollo
  • Humphrey Bogart
  • The Chronicles of Narnia
  • The Wizard of Oz
  • Peter Pan
  • Alice in Wonderland
  • Mobile devices
  • Joseph Campbell
  • Manga
  • Keats
  • The Grateful Dead
  • Greek mythology
  • Web 2.0

In other words, when it's finished it's going to be a pretty solid map of my head. Kind of. Good grief, it's going to be a mess...

Current processed word-count: 13,605, and about half of that is brand new stuff, not just spliced-in stuff. Man, I need a break.
