Abstract

This paper describes a web-based narrative system able to generate video compilations, framed as event stories, from a shared repository of video recordings of the event itself and possibly of related events. For this, it employs narrative techniques informed by TV documentary. The generated stories are dynamically personalised, in that the system is able to adapt them to the choices and preferences expressed by the active viewers during narration. The system has been prototyped for the case of school concerts. User evaluations indicate that experiences founded on story navigation rather than sharing individual media assets is a rewarding one and point to further areas of development in interactive storytelling in the context of user generated content.
