How Entertaiment Connects With Other Forms of Media


Entertaiment focuses on the arts of performance, but it also looks at how people interact with those performances and with each other. You may see it abbreviated entmt on a flier or in industry news publications, particularly when space is limited.

One of the most important aspects of entertainment is how it connects with other forms of media. For example, the story of Scheherazade (from the professional storytelling tradition) has inspired several orchestral works by composers like Rimsky-Korsakov, Ravel and Szymanowski; Pasolini made a film adaptation; and there is an innovative video game based on it as well. These connections show how powerful the art of entertainment is.
