Deborah L. Jaramillo investigates cable news' presentation of the Iraq War in relation to 'high concept' filmmaking. High concept films can be reduced to single-sentence summaries and feature pre-sold elements; they were considered financially safe projects that would sustain consumer interest beyond their initial theatrical run. Using high concept as a framework for the analysis of the 2003 coverage of the Iraq War#paying close attention to how Fox News and CNN packaged and promoted the U.S. invasion of Iraq#Ugly War, Pretty Package offers a new paradigm for understanding how television news reporting shapes our perceptions of events. Biography: Deborah Jaramillo is Assistant Professor in the Department of Film and Television at Boston University. She is a two-time Ford Fellow and sits on the board of the Texas Archive of the Moving Image.
