*Warning contains profanity*   This is the first of 5 different short videos telling the story of the murder of 4 friends in the woods on Halloween night. The videos can be navigated through the Cards tabs on YouTube. In an attempt to keep this as raw and realistic as possible I decided to leave in dialogue between my friends that contains profanity rather than attempting to edit it all out,…

Interactive Cinema – Wander

Wander is a calm interactive cinema where the main character comes across a path within a forest. She decides to venture forward, but where she goes will be up for the viewers to decide. As the viewers continue on, they will discover the beauty of the area that she is in and also how she came across it in the first place (it will explain why the footage is recorded…

The Whale hunt is one man’s narrative journey through a series of many images. What stands out about this work is the various organization options given to view the images. The options of mosaic, timeline, and pinwheel all give an artistic flare towards the organization of the images that encourages the viewer to view different segments of images. This work is narrative and tells a successful story while giving the…

The Whale Hunt

Interactive Video is an interesting idea to me.  The concept itself in a way bridges the gap between a video and a game, as the viewer is directly involved in the narrative in some way or another.  The Whale Hunt was a very interesting piece that I viewed.  It is comprised of a photographic slideshow with thousands of images.  I find that The Whale Hunt is closer to a database…

How does the interface create context for exploration and discovery? Are these works narratives or something else? How are they cinematic? How do they use cinema language? Manovich explores an interesting definition of the term database, incorporating narrative and visuals…

Bear 71 is a great example for interactive cinema. It is a documentary about how animals are being affected by humans, but it is told in an interactive way. I can click on photos and videos that are connected to a map. It is super interesting because they use text to show you facts about the population of certain animals many years ago and then the population of them today…

Bear 71 is an interactive database that tells the story of a wild grizzly bear’s struggle to survive in Canada’s Banff National Park. This database creates context for exploration and discovery by placing the user directly into the map as a human that is visiting the park. The user can explore the national park by clicking on different animals and plants. A smaller screen will pop up within the database…

“The Database” by Lev Manovich explains the form of new media. CD-ROM’s are storage media and are the most obvious examples of popular multimedia encyclopedia, collections by definition (219) CD’s are a collection of recipes, quotations, photographs and so much more. HTML, a website, is a sequential list of separate elements; text blocks, images, video clips, and links to so many different web pages. You can upload files and links to any website. Websites are medium due to…
