Abstract:

The crossover between videogames and film inspires this thesis. It is an attempt to integrate narrative and engagement in digital filmmaking thereby enabling active audience participation in the storytelling process. By analyzing early point-­‐of-­‐view camera experiments and contemporary implementation of these techniques in first-­‐ person shooter games this thesis presents the different values of point-­‐of-­‐view perspective in both games and films. In addition, the thesis explores the impact of film on games via the use of cut scenes, narrative structure and cinematic language in order to uncover some fundamental principles of gameplay experience. Integration of an interactive point-­‐of-­‐view camera technique with traditional cinematography in a linear narrative underpins the filmmaking experimentation of this thesis. By producing a participatory film, the thesis tests this mix of filmmaking techniques and audience engagement, with a result suggesting that the viewing experience was improved.
