ABSTRACT

This research focuses on the multimodal comparative interpretation, within a visual narrative framework, of the interpersonal meaning, ideational meaning, and textual meaning of tourism promotional videos for Jilin and Heilongjiang provinces. In terms of focalisation, the Jilin promotional video utilizes a greater number of mediated perspectives, fostering stronger interactivity with viewers compared to Heilongiang’s video. Regarding the pathos, both provinces feature a similar quantity of personalizing images, yet Heilongjiang's video excels in evoking resonance among viewers by showcasing winter scenes that evoke appreciation for ice and snow. Analyzing character manifestation and inter-event, both provinces employ metonymic character depiction, combined inter-event relationship of unfolding and projection to convey their respective tourism themes. Regarding visual-textual layout, both promotional videos employ an integrated visual-textual layout approach.
