Interactive film
22 July 2003 | by mortenwSee all my reviews

Switching - first ever Danish interactive movie Switching is produced by Oncotype. Financed by and in cooperation with the Danish Film Institute, with the support of the Development Fund of the Ministry of Culture, the MEDIA Programme of the European Union and the DFI Film Workshop. Distribution: SF FILM A/S

Synopsis Switching is a different type of film that paves the way for new storytelling methods. Switching was specially developed for DVD video. The fascination with interactive expression basically originates in its potential to depict a more fragmented form of reality. The user of this film enters a narrative labyrinth simultaneously unfolding and disrupting the story. A film is now something you can change by touching it. Film has become 'pliable'. There are three elements that explain why Switching departs from the linear form. The first is that the film can be changed at any time. Consequently, the user can jump back and forth in time and location. The second is the fact that interface and content are not divided; in other words, the screen has no buttons to click - the interface is transparent. The film itself is the clickable object. Accordingly, linear control and logic disappear. The third element is the fact that the narrative is structured around a circular system in which everything repeats itself. So it has no ending. The film continues forever in its circular universe.
