On my Ideas Archive forum I just posted an idea I think might be the future of literature.
What do you see for the future of literature?I said:Imagine a future where you download a new eBook and it comes with specially shot movie clips from the book.
Embedded within your new eBook are little icons that you can click to open a movie clip of the scene in the book.
Not full movies, just clips, but shot like a feature movie and specifically for that book.
Imagine you are reading a fantasy book about dragons. The author describes the dragon and you click the clip and that very dragon
shows up in full detail, alive in your eBook. Sword fight are displayed in full cinematic glory. You watch the dwarf sit at a fire and chug some ale.
I would think this would be appealing to movie makers for the simplicity and relative low cost of the productions.
Plus, the designs would be on file if anyone wanted to do a full-feature film of the book.
The technology already exists to do this.
