Crossed Lines: the creation of a multiform, multiscreen interactive film

Sarah Atkinson

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This article investigates the multiform, multiscreen interactive film installation, Crossed Lines (2002-2007, Dir: Sarah Atkinson). Crossed Lines amalgamates multiform plots, multiscreen viewing environments, interactive interfaces and interactive story navigation forms into one storytelling paradigm. My research probes the challenges of designing, authoring and scripting such an ambitious piece, drawing comparisons to traditional approaches to screenplay, authoring and traditional modes of fictional production. Various theories and paradigmatic perspectives are referenced whilst reflecting on the extensive creative developmental and production process of the filmic installation.
