hello:

I discuss this in my thesis (which is available in epub format download at http://artbyrt.com/artbyrt_docs/splash_film.html <http://artbyrt.com/artbyrt_docs/splash_film.html>

My experience is good for films in epubs but not longer than 3mins in length: otherwise epub file size balloons.

<(:-))…LOL…((-:)>
