Project 3: Remix a Story

I’ve chosen “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow,” a classic short story by Washington Irving, to remix for this project. I think I’ll be able to tackle the whole story for this project; it’s relatively short and the gist and sensibility of it can be portrayed without necessarily including every detail.

I’ve found four fairly good sources to use.

1. “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow” – a classic short story by Washington Irving
(Original text, available online)

2. The Headless Horseman: The Legend of Sleepy Hollow – 1922 silent version starring Will Rogers as Ichabod Crane.
Available here.

3. The Legend of Sleepy Hollow (1949) Disney Masterpieces – animated short film
Available here. 

4. Sleep Hollow (2013) – Fox television series.

I think I can¬†create a collection of digital artifacts, or possibly a diary of Ichabod Crane (including sketches and possible pictures of artifacts), to convey the story, create an appropriate, spooky feel to the tale, and effectively “digitize” it in a unique way.
