The selection, sequence, and pacing of the events in a story has a considerable impact on the conveyance and understanding of the narrative. Storytellers (and cinematographers) build sequences of story primitives to manipulate the mental and emotional state of a viewer. Therefore, offering the authors the means to easily manipulate the temporal structures and generate variations of story opens great perspectives in terms of creativity. This talk presents the ongoing work on this topic from the aspects of story logic and structure, Theater virtual storytelling platform, and pattern-based cinematography modules.
Hui-Yin Wu is a doctoral student on the MimeTIC team at INRIA Rennes (France) since October 2014, working on interactive storytelling for 3D environments. She has a B.A. in English Language and Literature, and a M.S. in Digital Contents and Technologies from National Chengchi University (Taiwan). Hui-Yin is a visiting scientist in the NCSU Liquid Narrative Group this summer.
