Multioptional Movie: How it Works

Saturday, March 12
2:00PM - 3:00PM

Austin Convention Center
Ballroom C
531 E 4th St

The idea of films with multi-strand narratives has been around for a while but somehow it has never really taken off. With the technological development of recent years like the ubiquity of touch devices, widespread broadband Internet and a changed consumer behaviour though the time seems right to take another in-depth look at the concept.

The makers of feature-length multioptional heist «Late Shift» and creators of interactive film format «CtrlMovie» talk about both the formal and creative challenges of multioptional movies and what they think it takes to get them right. They share their philosophy, experience and learnings with filmmakers interested in this new way of storytelling.
