Marlett has been talking to a number of major film studios about using their material as the basis for enhanced e-books. "It will be a bit of reverse engineering," Marlett said, explaining that enkHouse will build enhanced e-books from the video, soundtrack, and scripts created for movies. What will tie all the projects together is storytelling, he said.Marlett, in some cases, is bypassing the print book. He has a stable of writers and graphic artists who “take an idea—a film script, an ancient text like the Kama Sutra (of which enkHouse has an enhanced e-book version in the works), or movie and turn it into an enhanced e-book.”
According to Marlett, he knows what he’s doing is beyond regular books, even though it is story telling. He feels we’re now going through a redefinition of what a book is. What he’s creating is not reading a book, yet it’s not watching a TV.
What do you think it should be called?
