I’ve started work on my final project! Here’s the proposal I wrote up for it:
For my final project, I have decided to make Twitter accounts for the characters in the 1985 movie Clue. The tentative title for this project is “Character Clues.” This movie is based on the popular board game and is a murder mystery. The plot of the film takes place over a period of a few hours one night during a dinner party. There are fourteen characters in all. I will create accounts for each character and then proceed to tweet as them in the course of the movie. This will create the effect of the characters “live-tweeting” during the events of the evening. I intend to use these accounts to enhance the viewing experience of this movie by giving viewers a closer look at the personalities of the characters. I will collate the accounts either through a public list on my own Twitter account or through the use of Storify which I will then post on my website. After the project is over, I will write up an essay that reflects on my experience in creating the accounts.
I started making the accounts tonight…until Twitter discovered me. I’ve made 11 accounts so far, and I still need to make accounts for The Motorist, The Cook, and the Chief. These are more minor characters, but they definitely have significance in the overall plot. I’m pretty excited about this project, as it will give me ample opportunity to watch “Clue,” one of my favorite movies, multiple times. But first, I must finish making all the Twitter accounts! And figure out how to work TweetDeck…anyone know anything about it?
