Nested Cinema: An Immersive Fiction-film Experience

Prokopic, Pavel

Nested Cinema: An Immersive Fiction-film Experience Thumbnail



Nested Cinema is an original immersive experience that complicates the boundaries between the physical and the virtual, between the real and the imaginary. Nested Cinema reimagines film through the orchestration of technology across three distinct layers of experience – traditional screens, the installation space and cinematic virtual reality – giving rise to a new immersive mode of dramatic fiction and expanded cinema. By combining established and emerging production and presentation technologies, the project explores the narrative and atmospheric effects of a nested multimodal environment, as well as new modes of visitor engagement and novel audiovisual ex-pression and communication.
