Game Design and Interactive Cinema presented by Mr. Juraj Bohus, MFA

Rapid advancement in computing transforms traditional visual media storytelling and exercises our perceptual consciousness. The purpose of my research is to examine creative potential and ethical boundaries of emerging augmented and virtual reality, through development and analyses of an interactive storytelling game design. It is anticipated that the results from this exploration will enable visual media storytellers to enhance their creative and intellectual potential in the near future.
