PhD: Reactive Mise-en-scène
My current long-term project is my PhD.
Tentatively titled Reactive Mise-en-scène: Tailoring Virtual Narrative Environments Via User Attention.
I am exploring the space between viewer and player, where the user's attention proxied via where they look with the in-engine camera is used to drive immediate and long-term interactions and changes to the narrative environment.
As part of this research I have released a plugin that formalises this design approach.
More details soon...
