Symposium 11 Questions

  • Does the design of the interface force the users attention to follow certain lines of focus as opposed to others?
  • What are the key considerations when constructing a multilinear work?
  • Luers talks about databases in K-Films working on relational knowledge, and as such you can replicate narrative film techniques like flashback and montage. However is this disregarding the K-Film’s intention of exploring non-narrative?
  • Can you explain what temporal relations and micro and macro views mean in relation to K-Films?
  • Is having an end SNU a good idea to make he film have a conclusion, or should the viewer be able to interpret the film any way they like?
  • If a shot’s meaning can be changed why create lives when and if the film maker specifically linked the clips together?
  • Should sound be used differently in a Korsakow project than in a linear film?
  • Should the K-film essay focus more on why we did it or how we did it?
  • Can Korsakow’s interface look better?

Symposium 09 Questions

In the spirit of game shows the world over, our carry over questions:

  • Will Luers states that in K-Films “the narration of the database is through the interface; its design, entry points, absences, spatial complexity and simultaneity”. Is technology leading us towards a purely graphical/symbol based method of storytelling that is independent from language?
  • Is Korsakow purely a place for artistic expression, or is there any potential for it to be used commercially?
  • Is it a possibility that Korsakow will allow an ‘embed’ function that links to other media? What might this mean for K-Films?
  • Do lists actually create infinite possibilities?
  • If a Korsakow film is structured like a mosaic, do all clips need to be linked in some way to allow for understanding?
  • How can we emphasise moments of contemplation through making our korsakow films?
  • How as filmmakers do we decide on the right amount of “glue” (cohesion) if we are unsure of our user’s media literacy?
  • In her discussion of associational form, Frankham states that these films cause relationships between emotional elements rather than logical elements. If we were to implement this in our K-Films, would it require more planning, focussing on content or keywords to portray a specific emotion?
