Meet the listeners where co-creation is possible | Hitchhiker | Scoop.it
The witness (listener) is part of what makes up the entire storytelling event through validation and influence.

Storytelling evolved out of the need to communicate something beyond the obvious to someone besides yourself.

On a deeper level, the utterance (story) holds the possibility of witnessing too.

Kent Bye:  "Conflict and growth is the heart of drama, and a lot of films and video games use the trope of external combat to express this. But Rob [Morgan] sees the potential to explore stories in VR and AR that are much more about internalized emotional conflicts within the main protagonist / player of the experience."

António Maneira's curator insight, April 18, 1:32 AM
Oh my! If there are "narrative designers" shouldn't there be a narrative design course? I like the idea! Teaching how to build ambiguity in the characters definition allowing more freedom and agency to the gamer.

Virtual Reality (VR) storytelling is a hot topic today, and this article talks about the latest research in immersive storytelling.

 

It's one thing to use VR at IKEA or Lowe's home improvement stores to test out furniture and designs. It's quite another to share a story in VR. This post shares insights gained from recent research about what works and what doesn't in VR storytelling.

 

Stuff like:

  1. What is the audience's role in VR? It's fascinating what they discover!
  2. How does the position you stand in and the engagement you have in VR impact the effect of the story?
  3. What do visual constraits have on the story experience?

 

VR is a medium that truly changes storytelling. There are lots of opportunities and lots of pitfalls/dangers. Read this article to keep up to date on this trend.

Hollow is a digital documentary that lives through its protagonists and it is full of good ideas - even though the design and UX are not as tight as, let's say Pinepoint.

 

It includes some nice features and in this article, the creators come back on the production production, both from a writing and designing standpoints. Good read
