Cinévoqué: Design of a Passively Responsive Framework for Seamless Evolution of Experiences in Immersive Live-Action Movies

Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNISA,volume 11746)

Abstract

In this paper, we present a passively responsive framework for immersive movies, called Cinévoqué. The framework seamlessly alters the narrative and visual elements within an immersive live-action movie, based on real-time passive data, such as gaze direction and system time, obtained during the experience. The paper primarily focuses on the design and storytelling aspects of Cinévoqué, such as possible narrative structures and the design challenges involved in creating responsive experiences. We further examine the potential of this framework through two prototypes of varying complexity and responsive features, and the insights from them are used to suggest approaches that can lead to effective seamless narrative experiences.
