From the big screen to the little screen : converting feature films into mini-series

Back to summary

This talk examines the history and practice of converting feature films into mini-series, which has recently been revived by various streaming platforms as a way of boosting ratings and generating more content. The talk analyzes the effects of this practice by comparing different versions of several representative examples, and it primarily focuses on how the process of re-editing generates a new narrative structure and a more dispersed narrative focus that alters our previous understanding of the films under discussion.
