Marvelisation

This recent report Forget Franchises mirrors the focus of a paper I wrote last year.

Marvelisation, as I coined it, is a narrative strategy whereby an interconnected universe is exploited through standalone films.
I presented the paper at the Avanca Cinema Conference in Avanca, which is a small town about two hours out of oporto.
A link to the publication can be found here.

If interested in reading writing about cinema the book is a good purchase being 1288 pages long! each article is about 5 or 6 pages in length.

a Link to this year’s call for papers can be found here. The conference has a film festival attached to it and practical workshops so a really good way to be immersed in film, in sunny Portugal, for a week.
