The first lecture started with a review of the module. There is quite a lot to complete for these assessments and lots of time management, research and thinking will have to be done.
The lecture continued with the key concepts for digital narrative.
- Narrative Theory: This is how to structure stories.
- Cinematic Practice: Rules that are followed by creators for audience participation. For example mystery to give people motivation to watch or a character that can be identified with.
- Anti-Narrative: No structure in the story.
We watched and discussed a couple of short films.
