Total Immersion (Future Cinema Ideas)
I would like your comments on this following proposal for a total immersion in which you become the villain, hostage, the damsel in distress or even the hero in a film in a very simple and unique way. By taking the channel format from silent disco headphones and instead of changing the channel and the DJ you are listening to changing. you change the point of view of the characters eyes essentially been able to see and hear events unfolding by putting this system onto virtual reality head sets.
Do you think this is something people could be interested in, would you like become the hero or the villain? Very such like the 1980’s game books which is basically a similar thing it is a interactive piece of fiction which for example,
You enter the marble-clad forum to discover a GHOUL feasting on a corpse. Do you want to:
- Attack the GHOUL? (Turn to 203)
- Use your Potion of Persuasion, if you have one? (Turn to 288)
- Try to sneak around? (Turn to 17)
Could you imagine being able to change between those 8 characters in the film Vantage Point? which i think would be good starting point because it is 8 different characters watching one event and being able to change between them could add to the story line in mean just as a starting point you could look at using marks or hidden numbers within a film to encourage people to change channel or not.
after doing further research i did find how to make your own virtual reality goggles which is quite interesting tho it will not host the channel system but it will be a good first step.
Definitely worth a go.
The content can be filmed in the same way in which the Peep Show is filmed, this will also keep social aspects of going to the cinema.
