Database Cinema

This is a short interactive film that uses the Database Cinema technique of Lev Manovich. A group of teenage hikers are walking by a river when a grizzly bear surprises them and attacks. Your mission is to keep Gachy alive by choosing the correct option from the interactive panel while the story unfolds. For the best possible control set the video quality to HD 720p or 240p. Try to click your option at the last time in order to watch the whole scene of the film.

Lev Manovich, His New Media Project

The purpose of this essay is to develop an idea how the two concepts of Lev Manovich, 'database cinema' and 'spatial montage', are used in his 'Soft Cinema' collection. Finally, it answers why they are appropriate effective tools for contemporary times, the age of Google and blogging. Particularly the essay begins with an introduction to Lev Manovich and some topics that does develop in his book “The Language of new Media”. Subsequently it emphases on important filmmakers Dziga Vertov and Peter Greenaway that Manovich does write about them, indicating the gravity of the his project. Then it focuses on the digital editor ‘soft cinema’ and its two concepts 'database cinema', which is a method that the narrative evolves by selecting scenes from a media collection. and 'spatial montage', the technique that software manages and place on the screen different sizes of diverse footage. Consequently it answers why those techniques are appropriate effective tools for contemporary times.
