"How Interactivity Opens New Storytelling Possibilities"
This video essay is a response to a prompt asking how new digital media are changing parts of our lives. I chose to focus on the video game medium and look at a few ways having an active participant can influence the way a story plays out. Games analyzed include: BioShock, Grand Theft Auto IV,
Mass Effect, Mass Effect 2, Halo: Reach, Prince of Persia, and Heavy Rain.
*Note: contains some spoilers from the listed titles.
"Super Mario UCSD"
This project is comprised entirely of still images, as per the restrictions of the assignment. Emphasis was placed on using other aspects of film like camera position and sound to create a story acted out through still images while maintaining flow and consistency with cuts.
