Record Status: 
Abstract (in English): 

Crossed Lines (2002-2007, Dir: Sarah Atkinson) is a multiform, multiscreen interactive film installation. The piece amalgamates multiform plots, multiscreen viewing environments, interactive interfaces and interactive story navigation forms into one storytelling paradigm. This presentation probes the challenges of designing, authoring and scripting such an ambitious piece, drawing comparisons to traditional approaches to screenplay authoring and traditional modes of fictional production. Practical demonstrations will be included alongside supporting user response data. Various theories and paradigmatic perspectives are referenced whilst reflecting on the extensive creative developmental and production process of the filmic installation.
