Remix a Story

The assignment for this project was to take an existing story (fiction or nonfiction) told primarily in the linguistic mode and translate it into a new, digital, multimodal version.

I chose to remix the story of The Nutcracker. For those of you that are not familiar with the story, check out this plot summary of the original story, The Nutcracker and the Mouse King written by E.T.A Hoffmann.

My interpretation comes into play in that I decided to narrow my story on the character of Drosselmeyer. He has always been the most intriguing character to me in that he is an inventor/toymaker. I decided to create a toy company for Drosselmeyer and a monthly company catalog. Inside you will find the featured toy of the month, customer testimonials, tips on how to stage your own puppet show, and much more.
