Cinema Server = s/t (story over time): An Interface for Interactive Motion Picture Design
by Stephan J. Fitch

Master of Science, May 1992.


This thesis centers on the idea that "movies on demand" will need a new paradigm to help viewers browse and select titles, and that a digital movie browser should support the interactive adaptation of a movie narrative based on any number of variables. The underlying graphical elements of such a browser, which we will call "Cinema Server," must be familiar to the user.
