Dr. Pamela Rutledge's curator insight, July 30, 2015 10:43 AM

"Oculus Story Studio's new (& cute) animated short "Henry" brings the psychology of empathy (and much more) into the forefront of development and design.  Yes, it will change the way the audience watches and thinks about movies, but it will only succeed as an artform if filmmakers, storytellers and producers understanding the fundamentals that create empathy, how empathy differs from sympathy and other forms of emotional response, how the sense of presence changes with perception and how people attribute meaning like intentionality in a 'shared space.'  The most telling quote in the article is a parenthetical aside when Saschka Unseld is quoted as saying that the change in connection makes comedy twice as hard because Buster Keaton-esque physical comedy just feels “mean.”  VR will force the examination of all the conventional filmmaking rules of thumb for transmitting engagement and emotion--without which the story isn't successful. #mediapsych  More than ever, it's the psychology that matters.

Dominique Taste's curator insight, December 2, 2014 1:45 PM

Analyse fouillée des mécanismes du storytelling à l'oeuvre dans ce podcast-feuilleton qui rassemble plus d'1,5 million d'auditeur chaque semaine à la radio.

La storytelleuse et productrice, Sarah Koenig s'est détourné des codes classiques de narration anglo-saxonne, en créant une fiction interactive avec un personnage de narrateur. L'originalité du récit est que l'auteur elle-même n'en connaît pas l'issue. Donc aucun risque de spoiler, le suspense reste intact.
