A New Mythology. The Internet is the Next Great Story | Storytelling in digital media | Scoop.it

Storytelling via the Internet needs a better name.

 

"Before climbing onto the project, Hollow’s producer Nathaniel Hansenand I had for a couple years asked ourselves a question, roughly: 

 

is it even possible to produce interactive online cinematic content that maintains strong narrative and is as engaging as traditional forms of media?

 

Our assumption was that “interactive storytelling” on the web is like the wild west of non-fiction filmmaking, with very few rules, artists working to stake their claim, and unlimited virtual land up for grabs.

Yes, the technology is young, but it’s also a blank canvas, with endless possibilities. Further, because the Internet connects both individuals and technology across time and space, there’s a contextualized “hyper” element that no other medium can employ as cosmically among disparate communities and storytellers."
