Subject Line: CFP: Velvet Light Trap DVD Issue

The Velvet Light Trap

A Critical Journal of Film & Television

Issue 56, Fall 2005

Issue Theme: DVDs

Less than a decade after their entry into the market, the impact of
DVDs has already become visible in media production strategies, legal
and economic policy, marketing and distribution, exhibition
environments, and audience reception habits. Decisions on style and
content during shooting of film and television programs increasingly
consider possibilities for cross-media consumption.  Short forms such
as making-of documentaries and other ≥bonus features≤ have
proliferated.  Direct to consumer sales have created lucrative markets
for otherwise marginal films and television programs and have affected
habits of consumption. The home viewing environment opens possibilities
for interfaces with other entertainment technologies.

The Velvet Light Trap invites papers exploring issues surrounding DVD
technology as part of audiovisual culture and practice.† In addition to
papers focusing on technology, we seek papers that examine DVDs in
relation to questions of aesthetics, narrative construction, genre,
production, promotion/distribution, exhibition, and
reception--including issues of economic consumption and cultural
use--from local, national, or global perspectives.
